Hosted by Rogers, who is founder and chair of experience design firm BRC Imagination Arts, the panel was created to "preserve and share the otherwise-lost wisdom and methods of the industry’s great achievers, in a way that helps tomorrow’s leaders shape the future".

Taking place this year on 20 November, the theme for Legends 2019 is "Report from the Galaxy’s Edge", with four Disney creatives responsible for the creation of Disney's immersive new Star Wars lands "sharing insights, strategies and lessons learned by leaving the known path and inventing new worlds".

Anisha Deshmane is the second member of the four-person panel. Her approach to Galaxy's Edge saw the creation of "unique customised experiences" that would feel unique to each visitor.

The third member will be Margaret Kerrison, managing story editor for Disney Imagineering. Her role included the incorporation of much of the detail from the Star Wars cinematic universe in order to create an authentic product that die-hard fans would appreciate.

Chris Beatty will be the final member of the panel. One of the creative directors in charge of development at Galaxy's Edge, According to Beatty, the design process saw Imagineers "lean forward to the future, but leave a door open to the past."
