Black Spire Outpost Will Be the Village in Walt Disney World’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Star Wars: Galactic Nights took place tonight at Disney’s Hollywood Studios tonight.  It appears at the panel discussions at the event included some exciting new news about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.  It was confirmed that the village in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be called Black Spire Outpost.  Of course there is a special meaning and story behind the name, as we have come to expect with Disney.

Here is the story behind how the name was selected from Disney Parks Blog:

“The largest settlement on the planet Batuu, Black Spire Outpost is an infamous stop for traders, adventurers, and smugglers traveling around the Outer Rim and Wild Space. Off the beaten path, this outpost has become a haven for the galaxy’s most colorful — and notorious — characters. Widely known for the petrified remains of its once towering ancient trees, the spires now stand guard across the river valleys and plains and have long captured the imagination of travelers to this planet. To the first settlers, these petrified spires became more than just landmarks; they became the heart of the outpost itself.”

Of course as we hear about any new details related to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, we will update you all.  We can’t wait to see what else this fantastic new land has to offer.
