Explore Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge With New ‘Black Spire’ Novel
When it comes to visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at either Disneyland theme park on the West Coast or Hollywood Studios on the East Coast there’s a lot of fun ways to enhance your visit! Whether its unlocking special adventures through the Play Disney Parks App, using mobile ordering to nab some intergalactic treats or securing your spot at Oga’s Cantina -planning is half the fun.
For all of your book-lovers out there, we even have a special way to emerge yourself in the storylines and lore of this incredible new land – Galaxy’s Edge Black Spire novel written by Delilah S. Dawson and published by Random House!
In Dawson’s new novel Black Spire, the plot centers around Vi Moradi’s exploits on the planet Batuu. The story explains how the Resistance and the First Order came to inhabit the remote outpost planet and reveals why the First Order is keen to track down the plucky Resistance spy. “They’ve heard Vi Moradi is there and might be trying to make a Resistance Base,” Dawson teases. “They got their intel correct. They’re hunting for her.”
The novel was written by a prequel to the Disney Parks experience. Black Spire bridges the gap between Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (in theaters December 20, 2019), and Moradi’s mission is central to the story. General Organa has tasked her with setting up a hidden camp and recruiting potential allies to rebuild the Resistance—no easy feat, seeing as they’re still licking their wounds after back-to-back losses at D’Qar and Crait.
Guests can get familiar with this awesome backstory by picking the novel up before you head to the parks. The novel can currently be purchased for $17.99 hardcover from Amazon or in e-book format for $14.99. You can pick up your copy here.
Once you’re at the park, visitors can mimic Moradi’s escapes and you may even catch a glimpse of her roaming the land! According to Dawson, “We’ll start with the forest surrounding Batuu. We’ll see the ancient ruins, we’ll visit Oga’s Cantina, we’ll go to Mubo’s Droid Depot, we’ll have a brief time in Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities, we’ll drink the Blue Milk, and we’ll enjoy Ronto Roasters.’ Dawson adds, “We’ll see a little bit of everything because Vi and her people are all over the world.” Readers will also learn more about Black Spire itself, which is steeped in lore. “Everybody tells a different legend about the Black Spire,” she says. “In the book, depending on whether you’ve talked to someone who lives in the heart of the city or someone who has just gotten on the planet, they all have different perspectives. No one knows for sure, so it’ll be fun to make up different legends and let the readers and visitors consider which one they think might be true.”
