New Details Released On Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
Big News! Disney has just released new details on Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge! Let’s take a look at all of the amazing surprises waiting for us on this remote planet outpost…
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be the largest single-themed land expansion at both Disneyland park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios when they open this summer and fall, respectively. While the land is epic in size, every detail in the land has been designed to have an authentic Star Wars feel. Previously teasers have been shared of the two anchor attractions. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, is where you will find themselves in the middle of an epic battle between the Resistance and the First Order. Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, will give you and your flight crew a chance to take the controls of the fastest ship in the galaxy on a special mission. Also previously announced was that Oga’s Cantina will be a great place for you to grab a beverage and catch up on the latest gossip. All of this while R-3X, formerly the Starspeeder pilot on the original Star Tours, DJ’s a collection of new music.
Introduced today is a new series called “Building Batuu.” Batuu is the home of Black Spire Outpost, the location you will visit when you arrive at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. It has become a haven for the galaxy’s most colorful — and notorious — characters. Over the next several months, more details will be shared about this entire new land. Plus the new offerings, attractions, and how you can live your own Star Wars adventure in a galaxy far, far away.
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 hasn’t been previously shared.
While we’re on the subject of taste, there will be several locations in the land to satisfy the appetites of most rogue adventurers:
Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo
Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs has traveled throughout the galaxy following his longtime gig as the chef at Maz Kanata’s castle on Takodana and brings exotic flavors and unusual dishes to his traveling diner “Tuggs’ Grub.”
A recycled podracing engine fires up a spit of exotic meats, meticulously turned by a former smelter droid, 8D-J8. Guests can even sample some of the tasty Ronto fare.
The place to go to get your farm-fresh blue milk or green milk, direct from Bubo Wamba Family Farms.
Kat Saka’s Kettle
Kat Saka’s Kettle is one of the many street market stalls. This grain vendor sells the ever-popular Outpost Mix (blend of sweet, savory and spicy popcorn).
For those looking to purchase in-story Star Wars merchandise and rare finds from across the galaxy, look no further than our many different Outpost stores and market stalls.
Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities
For those in the know, Dok-Ondar is the Ithorian you seek for selling and buying rare and uniquely-valued items from across the galaxy and spanning all eras.
Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers
Guests come to the workshop to meet with the Gatherers. This is a secretive group of people who have dedicated their lives to restoring balance in the galaxy. They help by passing on their knowledge of Jedi lore and the Force. The workshop Master guides guests to customize and build their own unique lightsabers. They also instruct them on the ways of the Jedi.
Visitors to Mubo’s workshop can choose parts and construct their own individual astromech droids. These droids can then accompany them on their journey, and then take them home with them.
First Order Cargo
A spaceport hangar bay serves as the temporary base and landing spot for the First Order. First Order officers have brought in crates of gear, uniforms and other supplies. They want to win the hearts and minds of locals and visitors to Black Spire Outpost.
Resistance members and local sympathizers oversee a makeshift stall. It supplies Resistance uniforms, pins, badges, hats, helmets, jackets, maps, tools, training supplies, food rations and other items.
There are also several market stalls which sell a variety of merchandise such as:
- Toydarian Toymaker (toys)
- Creature Stall (interesting critters that you can take home with you)
- Black Spire Outfitters (clothing)
- The Jewels of Bith (accessories and other trinkets to treasure)
We look forward to sharing additional details about these and much more through the “Building Batuu” series. Keep your eyes open for some additional news coming later today on some of the food and beverage offerings that will be served in Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo. Also, be on the look out for how the Disney Cast Members’ costumes will play a big part in bringing the inhabitants of this outpost to life.
