Aside from Pandora in Animal Kingdom and Toy Story Land in Hollywood Studios, no other land has been more anticipated than Star Wars Land in Hollywood Studios. Set to open in fall of 2019, this new land will allow guests to fully immerse themselves in the planet Batuu, part of the Black Spire Outpost, described as a“remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge.”
The Black Spire Outpost was so named for the petrified remains of its once towering ancient trees. These “spires” now stand guard across the river valleys and plains.
If you had a chance to see Solo: A Star Wars Story, Black Spire was mentioned. After Han and Qi’ra enlist the help of Lando, Lando’s co-pilot Droid L3-37 says that without her help,
“Lando couldn’t even find The Black Spires”
Star Wars Land in Hollywood Studios will feature two new rides
One ride puts guests at the helm of the Millennium Falcon. During this flight simulator ride, guests will be shooting blasters & going into hyperspace in order to complete a critical mission. Their performance will affect the ending and how guests are get greeted when returning.
The second ride will make guests feel like they’re inside a hangar bay in the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance.
Meet & Greets in Star Wars Land
Wondering who you might see in Star Wars Land in Hollywood Studios? We already know that Chewbacca, BB-8 and Kylo Ren are at Star Wars Landing, so they will be there, but we’ve also heard that Nein Nunb, a rebel alliance pilot from Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens will show up in Batuu.
Star Wars Land Cantina Restaurant
Star Wars Land in Hollywood Studios will get a new restaurant inspired by the movie franchise. The Cantina will have a DJ, very similar to that of Cosmic Rays in Magic Kingdom. At the Cantina, you will find astromech droid Rex (RX-24) playing tunes!
While the full menu hasn’t been released, we are told that you will find blue milk, made famous by Luke Skywalker in “A New Hope.” My guess is that they’ll also carry the Darth Vader Cupcake too!
Star Wars Land Marketplace
While in Star Wars Land, you will be able to do some shopping that’s out of this world. Built to look like the market stalls of Istanbul and Marrakech, you will find a Toydarian (from“Star Wars: The Phantom Menace”).
While many new Star Wars merchandise can already be found online and at the Disney Parks, we can expect some new released and limited edition merchandise to appear during the first few months of Star Wars Land opening.
Will you be going to Disney World in 2019 to see the Grand Opening of Star Wars Land in Hollywood Studios? What are you most excited to see?
