Fans got a treat during a panel discussion at Star Wars Galactic Nights at Disney Studios in Walt Disney World Sunday as the name of the village was released for Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge.
Black Spire Outpost will be the home as Margaret Kerrison of Disney Parks Blog gave the back story of the village. “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,” as written on the site about Black Spire Outpost.
More details will be released as we getting closer to the opening of the new experience at the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World as we get closer to the first of the experiences opening at Disneyland in the summer of 2019 and Fall 2019 at Walt Disney World.
