Disney Reveals the Name of the Village in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Guests who attended Star Wars: Galactic Nights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios this past weekend were treated to a nice surprise when Disney Parks Blog’s story editor, Margaret Kerrison, shared for the first time that the name of the village of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is called Black Spire Outpost. She also shared some of the history behind the name and how this village is closely associated with the geological formations that surround it.

The largest settlement on the planet Batuu, Black Spire Outpost is an infamous stop for traders, adventurers, and smugglers traveling around the Outer Rim and Wild Space. Off the beaten path, this outpost has become a haven for the galaxy’s most colorful — and notorious — characters. Widely known for the petrified remains of its once towering ancient trees, the spires now stand guard across the river valleys and plains and have long captured the imagination of travelers to this planet. To the first settlers, these petrified spires became more than just landmarks; they became the heart of the outpost itself.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is set to open at Disneyland Resort in summer 2019 and at Walt Disney World Resort in late fall 2019.
