This weekend, Guests were surprised with an all new location that they could now visit as a part of Star Tours: The Adventures Continue at both Disneyland and at Walt Disney World.
Now, when Guests board their Star Tours: The Adventures Continue Starspeeders at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disneyland Park, you’ll not only be able to visit the planet of Crait, which will be featured as part of The Last Jedi, but you’re also able to make a stop on another planet…one that is located on the outer rim of the Star Wars galaxy. This particular planet is known C-3PO, and now to us, as Batuu.
Never heard of Batuu? It’s a remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge that was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes, but its prominence was bypassed by the rise of hyperspace travel. The planet is now home to those who prefer to stay out of the mainstream. Batuu 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. Now does it sound familiar? It’s the Star Wars land where Guests will be visiting as part of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at both Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
Guests will be able to visit the planet in person when Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge officially opens in 2019.
