2. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

Immerse yourself in a battle between the First Order and the Resistance! Our second attraction, which puts guests in the middle of an epic battle between the Resistance and the First Order, is called Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. As you can see from this video, which was shot in the actual attraction, both the stakes, and the excitement are running high in this epic Star Wars cliffhanger!

These two new incredible experiences – paired with the land’s dynamic elements and optional interactive integration with the Play Disney Parks app – invite guests to become galactic travelers and live their own Star Wars stories in a galaxy far, far away.

Introducing the Planet Batuu

1. Journey to Batuu.

Travel into a thriving port of rogue traders, droids and strange creatures while exploring Planet Batuu. The outpost of Batuu, a part of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge. At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, guests will be transported to the planet of Batuu, a remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge that was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes. Here, guests will find themselves in the middle of the action at two attractions that take detail and immersion to the next level: one that lets guests take the controls of Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.

2. Black Spire Outpost

Set your coordinates for this notorious spaceport in the galactic frontier before heading out to Wild Space. Humans and creatures from around the galaxy order drinks and talk at an exotic Star Wars cantina. 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.

3. Train Your Young Jedi

Prepare Force-sensitive kids for galactic adventures with Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple. 4 children hold lightsabers while dressed in robes.
Root for the New Recruits. Jedi Knights have assembled Force-sensitive children from throughout the galaxy to test their abilities.

Under the tutelage of the Jedi, the recruits learn how to use the Force—and their wit—to wield lightsabers. Now that the Empire has driven the Jedi to the distant corners of the galaxy, the training must proceed in secret at ancient Jedi temples.

But not even this precaution can shield the Jedi from the evil forces of the Dark Side for long. Soon, the temple opens and the students are challenged to use their new skills when they come face-to-face with their greatest fears—in the frightening form of notorious Star Wars villains!
