If you’ve always wanted to live out your “Star Wars” dreams, now is your chance. Disneyland is looking for recruits to join the First Order as Stormtroopers in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Think you have what it takes?
Disney recently posted an open call audition for Character Performers to work as Stormtroopers in the all-new “Star Wars”-themed land, which opens at Disneyland next week. The audition calls for individuals at least 18 years old (or 2019 high school graduates) who are between 5’10” and 6’0″ tall and can work in full-body Stormtrooper costumes. “Imaginative improvisation” is also required for the role, and if you’ve encountered Stormtroopers at the Disney Parks before, you know what this means. There are other requirements for the position, though, so take a look at the audition posting below, courtesy of Disney:
Disney Parks Live Entertainment is seeking energetic performers to bring to life some of the exciting characters from the Star Wars™ saga. Performers appear before thousands of guests each day in meet-and-greets while posing for pictures and helping to create magical moments with guests of all ages at the Disneyland® Resort.

But if you think you’re up for the challenge of being a part of the First Order and you’ve always wanted to be a Stormtrooper, this may be the perfect job for you.
