Details Released About Walt Disney World’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Planet

Guests that rode on Star Tours – The Adventures Continue today at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World were among the first to learn new information about the new planet that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is expected to be located within.  We now know that the planet is known at Batuu.  The planet is located in the outer rim of the Star Wars galaxy.  It was debuted to guests riding the attraction via new scenes and information.


According to Disney Parks Blog:  “This remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes, but its prominence was bypassed by the rise of hyperspace travel. Now home to those who prefer to stay out of the mainstream, it has become a thriving port for smugglers, rogue traders and adventurers traveling between the frontier and uncharted space. It’s also a convenient safe haven for those intent on avoiding the expanding reach of the First Order. While Batuu may be new to us, it is clearly already familiar to many characters from the Star Wars saga as a stepping off point for epic adventures.”

We can’t wait to experience and learn more about Batuu.  We are sure that Disney is going to do a fantastic job with the development of this new, themed land and we can’t wait to see it completed.

Who out there got to experience the new scenes while riding Star Tours today?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
