In the past, you may have heard us share that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is the largest single-themed land expansion at both Disneyland park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and that they are opening this summer and fall, respectively. We have previously shared that while the land is epic in size, every detail in the land has been designed to have an authentic Star Wars feel. You hopefully have also seen the teasers of our two anchor attractions – Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, where you will find yourself in the middle of an epic battle between the Resistance and the First Order, and Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, which allows you and your flight crew to take the controls of the fastest ship in the galaxy on a special mission. We have also said that Oga’s Cantina is a great place for guests to grab a beverage, catch up on the latest gossip while R-3X, formerly the Starspeeder pilot on the original Star Tours, DJ’s a collection of new music.
Today I’d like to introduce a new series on the Disney Parks Blog called “Building Batuu.” Batuu, as you may know, is the home of Black Spire Outpost, the location you will visit when you arrive at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, which has become a haven for the galaxy’s most colorful — and notorious — characters. Over the next several months, we will be providing you with more details about this entire new land, the offerings and attractions and how you can live your own Star Wars adventure in a galaxy far, far away.
We will show you how you can dive deeper into Star Wars storytelling by engaging with the land through the Play Disney Parks app, if you desire a deeper level of immersion. But there is also plenty to see and do (and taste!) throughout Black Spire Outpost that we haven’t previously shared.
