Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opened in Disneyland Resort on 31st May 2019, with its Walt Disney World counterpart following on August 2019 and is set on the planet Batuu. The official Disneyland guide explains:
"On the edge of the galaxy, between the Unknown Regions and Wild Space, there is a long-forgotten planet named Batuu.
Batuu’s largest village is a settlement known as Black Spire Outpost, which has become a thriving destination for those who would prefer to go about their business unnoticed—scoundrels, rogues, smugglers and, recently, whispers in the woods reporting sightings of individuals associated with the Resistance.
News of the Resistance has drawn the attention of the First Order, eager to stomp out any remaining flickers of opposition to their absolute control.
Amid this brewing conflict, sits an exotic outpost surrounded by a beautiful landscape dominated by the petrified remains of towering ancient trees, from which Black Spire Outpost draws its name. The modern village is built on the remains of crumbling structures built by a long-extinct civilization.
Now you are invited to visit this beautiful and treacherous village of secrets, built upon secrets.
Drop by the local cantina to sample the indigenous beverages and curious concoctions. Chat with the locals, and meet travelers from across the galaxy. Wander a street market filled with rare and unusual artifacts… and more than a few hidden treasures."
