First Disney teased us with the dates, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens at Disneyland Resort in summer 2019 or at Walt Disney World Resort in late fall 2019 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. So now we can start guessing the exact dates and trying to plan those trips to be among the first to see the new land. Now, we know where we will be visiting!
During the panel discussions at Star Wars: Galactic Nights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, fans heard some exciting news about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The story editor, Margaret Kerrison, shared for the first time that the name of the village is called Black Spire Outpost. She also shared some of the history behind the name and how this village is closely associated with the geological formations that surround it.
The largest settlement on the planet Batuu, Black Spire Outpost is an infamous stop for traders, adventurers, and smugglers traveling around the Outer Rim and Wild Space. Off the beaten path, this outpost has become a haven for the galaxy’s most colorful — and notorious — characters. Widely known for the petrified remains of its once towering ancient trees, the spires now stand guard across the river valleys and plains and have long captured the imagination of travelers to this planet. To the first settlers, these petrified spires became more than just landmarks; they became the heart of the outpost itself.
We are so looking forward to sharing more details with you in the coming months and cannot wait for you to live YOUR own Star Wars story once Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens at Disneyland Resort in summer 2019 or at Walt Disney World Resort in late fall 2019. Who is already planning a trip?
