Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is full of rides, restaurants, shops, and unlike most pockets of Disneyland, unique character experiences. To spend time with the Star Wars characters inhabiting the planet Batuu, a visitor needs to track them down on the streets of the Black Spire Outpost ... or wait for them to get into a firefight with the First Order.
Having an encounter is easier than it sounds. In fact, I managed to bump into the star of the whole show, a woman named Vi Moradi, while I was standing around sipping my first glass of blue milk.
If the name Vi Moradi doesn’t sound familiar to you, that’s because she’s relatively new to the Star Wars universe. She made her first appearance in the 2017 novel Phasma, which unpacks part of Captain Phasma’s mysterious backstory. The book, by Delilah S. Dawson, is an action-packed tale of deception and conspiracy, in which solving a murder mystery could be the key to bringing down one of the First Order’s most powerful leaders.
