Located deep in the Outer Rim near Wild Space, the remote planet of Batuu has become a thriving destination for scoundrels and smugglers, luring bounty hunters from across the galaxy. If you’ve come to track down your next bounty, select Image Scanners (known on our planet as Disney PhotoPass photographers) can offer you a holopuck that will reveal the details of your next target.

This is the droid you’re looking for. Given the whispers about sightings of individuals associated with the Resistance around Black Spire Outpost, it’s no surprise that you can spot this loveable and loyal astromech in your image.  

Armorer’s Forge Lens 

This is the Way to design your Mandalorian beskar armor. With this new Disney PhotoPass Lens, you can opt for a bright and bold color palette like Sabine Wren’s armor, or keep your design more discreet – the choice is yours. May 4 through May 11, you can enjoy complimentary access to this Lens in the My Disney Experience app. Starting May 12, it’ll be available exclusively to Annual Passholders or those who purchase Disney Genie+ service.

Created more than a thousand years ago by Tarre Vizsla (the first Mandalorian to become a Jedi Knight), the Darksaber is an ancient weapon with a long and legendary history. It has been wielded by many beings over the years, and now it’s your turn. Starting tomorrow, this blade can be found across from Oga’s Cantina after dark. Just remember the wise words Kanan Jarrus once shared about this lightsaber: “That sword is old, heavy, but powerful. Respect its strength.”
