Disney has announced that starting August 29, a new Darth Vader meet and greet will be coming to the Star Wars Launch Bay. With Kylo Ren actively searching for resistance spies on Batuu, it seems his… grandfather will be taking his place. With the exception of March of the First Order, which met its end on July 6th, all other existing Star Wars offerings will remain in the park for guests to enjoy while “off planet” (as opposed to on Batuu.)
When Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens August 29 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, this new land will transport guests to the planet of Batuu, where they’ll be able to live your own adventure in and around Black Spire Outpost. When guests are “off planet” exploring the rest of the park, then can still enjoy a variety of other great Star Wars experiences that celebrate the entire saga.
