BREAKING: Name of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge Village Revealed at Galactic Nights

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Tonight at Disney’s Hollywood Studios during Galactic Nights Galaxy’s Edge panel, it was revealed that the name of the village we’ll be visiting when Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens in 2019 will be called Black Spire Outpost.

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 opens at Disneyland Park in Summer 2019 and at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Late Fall 2019.
