VIDEO: Ride Rise Of The Resistance With MickeyBlog
It is gray and spitting here in the Northeast. And while I was contemplating an end of summer [yes, i said it] chores list, Greg and Elyssa kept my anxiety in check. Especially because MickeyBlog took a trip to Batuu via “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.”
And, in the process, they got a very early boarding pass for “Rise of the Resistance.”
Now, I’ve been on the ride once. And I have really, really wanted to try it again since I have done a fair amount of reading about the theming of the land (and its “history”). And there’s been plenty of mentions of Black Spire in many corners of canon, I have some homework for you before you head to the outpost.
The below books can be found in the parks and your local bookstore and on Amazon (and I listened to most on Audible).
Recommendations for reading: Galaxy’s Edge
- The Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Marvel Comic
Collected stories along a common arc, which give hints about the background of Batuu.
- Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Black Spire
One of the residents of Batuu is Vi Moradi. And you may run into her when you visit. Read her story.
- Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – A Crash of Fate
This book reminds me of one of my favorites in canon – Lost Stars. However, this book has elements of “rom-com” and gives a lot of background on the community in and around Black Spire Outpost.
- Star Wars: Force Collector
Insight into Doc Ondar’s Den of Antiquities.
And, finally, two guidebooks:
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – A Traveler’s Guide to Batuu
The type of guidebook you might fight in the bookstore for Boston, London, or Tokyo – but for Batuu.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook
Did you ever want to whip up some Wroshyr Tree Cake? This is the book for you.
Meanwhile, I will tell you that Greg and Elyssa’s video from this morning is one of the calmest, best looking, and detailed walk and ride throughs I’ve seen about the attraction.
