Immerse yourself in galactic adventures at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge® at Disney’s Hollywood Studios® at Walt Disney World® Resort.

For over 40 years, Star Wars has taken us to a galaxy far, far away and captured our imaginations. Guests can actually experience the galaxy of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge® at Disney’s Hollywood Studios® at Walt Disney World® Resort and at Disneyland® Park, Guests can actually experience the galaxy of Star Wars—including attractions and Character encounters, dining, shopping and other unforgettable experiences.

Character Encounters
Star Wars Experiences

“We chose Batuu because we wanted to create a place Star Wars fans have never been and a narrative they’ve never seen in any other form of media,” says Scott Mallwitz, executive creative director for Walt Disney Imagineering. “We didn’t want to simply recreate a place from one of the films or retell an existing legend. Batuu is definitely part of the Star Wars universe, but it is a remote planet on the edge of wild space… This allowed us to define Batuu in terms of its characteristics, history, occupants and aesthetics down to the smallest details, even the way the buildings are surfaced.”

The decision to focus on Batuu freed Walt Disney Imagineers to do what they do best—imagine, create and build an immersive world. “It was thrilling to have the opportunity to create this planet, this port, this story from stratch,” Mallwitz says. “Of course, we researched all the previous Star Wars media and film production design. We also referenced real-world places like Marrakesh and Istanbul to develop the feeling of an ancient place, rich with history, yet vibrant and alive. Then we looked at everything through the lens of Batuu so that every color, surface and detail supported our story and sense of place.”

Star Wars Experiences

“Our Guests are entering a truly immersive environment. To enhance that, we have created a world that is ‘real’ to its inhabitants,” says Mallwitz, executive creative director for Walt Disney Imagineering. “The residents of Batuu have no awareness of the concept of Star Wars. You won’t find references to it of any kind—there is nothing that says ‘Star Wars’ because to the Guest, this is simply present-day Batuu and the people who live here are going about their day-to-day lives in a working spaceport at the edge of the galaxy. Guests will enter that reality as if they are travelers, and we’re going to treat them as such.”

Take in all of the details, such as the petrified features that were once towering trees many years ago. (They now form the “spires” that give Black Spire Outpost its name.) Batuu’s strategic position on the outskirts of the galaxy make it a popular destination for trading, smuggling, bounty-hunting and appearances by both the Resistance and First Order alike. With different narratives unfurling every day, no two trips to Batuu are ever the same!



Even experienced hyperspace travelers could use some pointers! Here are a few tips to maximize your Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge® experience.

• Batuu is a hit with fans from all over, so make reservations in advance where you can! Reservations are currently accepted at Oga’s Cantina, Droid Depot and Savi’s Workshop.
