1. It Opens Next Year! Opening date for the Walt Disney World Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is late Fall 2019. This means that if you've got plans for a Disney trip during Christmas break next year you'll get in on all the action.





2. It's Set On The Planet Batuu. Guests visiting Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, will make a trip to the Black Spire Outpost on planet Batuu. This remote destination on the galaxy's edge is home to those galactic personalities that prefer to stay out of the mainstream. A thriving port, Black Spire Outpost is the last stop on the frontier for smugglers, rogues, and adventurers headed into uncharted space.
