Set on the planet Batuu is a remote frontier outpost somewhere on the edge of Wild Space beyond the outer rim. A former trading planet that has fallen off the main galactic routes with the adoption of faster than light travel (FTL). This is clearly a great home for smugglers, bounty hunters, and rouge adventurers looking to avoid the mainstream path and maybe get up to no good.

The scale of this project is epic with 5000 people globally working on bringing this project to life at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. From massive set pieces to design elements and story development, this is not your typical Star Wars movie with a few camera angles, ‘this is for reals’.

Black Spire Outpost

Black Spire Outpost is the name of the village inside of the upcoming Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at both Disneyland Resort in California and Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. The village is closely associated with the geological formations that surround it. As the largest settlement on the planet Batuu, Black Spire Outpost is an infamous stop for traders, adventurers, and smugglers travelling around the Outer Rim and Wild Space. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open at Disneyland Resort in summer 2019 and at Walt Disney World Resort in late fall 2019. (Disney)
