While living their adventure in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, you are likely to come across some familiar faces as you explore the planet of Batuu and Black Spire Outpost. Batuu is a far-flung destination along the galaxy’s Outer Rim, on the frontier of Wild Space – the uncharted region at the edge of the galaxy. The planet is home to Black Spire Outpost, an infamous port for smugglers, traders and adventurers wishing to avoid any unnecessary entanglements with the First Order, and in the ancient ruins outside Black Spire Outpost, locals report sightings of individuals associated with the Resistance.
Recently arrived First Order Stormtroopers bring a new presence throughout Black Spire Outpost, patrolling the area and engaging villagers and travelers alike. Wherever someone goes in Black Spire Outpost, the First Order is always watching! From time to time, Kylo Ren himself may even arrive in Black Spire Outpost, impressing upon its inhabitants the power and strength of the First Order. He consults with the First Order Officer assigned to this trading port and sets out with a contingent of Stormtroopers to interrogate the locals, seeking any Resistance sympathizers.
The mighty Wookiee, Chewbacca, may be spotted in Black Spire Outpost, rounding up new recruits for the Resistance and helping to establish a temporary base hidden away from the outpost and the prying eyes of the First Order. Vi Moradi, a Resistance spy working under orders from General Organa, makes her way through the area, sharing some of the tricks of her trade and ensuring those she encounters that the Resistance is getting stronger. And as you explore the wooded outskirts of the village, you may also encounter Rey as she greets recruits, champions the Resistance and inspires everyone she meets.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is the ultimate Star Wars experience! You can visit now at Disneyland® Resort, and it opens August 29, 2019, in Disney’s Hollywood Studios® at Walt Disney World® Resort.
