Village in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to be Called ‘Black Spire Outpost’


At tonight's Star Wars: Galactic Nights event, Imagineering revealed that the village in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will be known as Black Spire Outpost. The name was revealed during the two panel discussions with Imagineer Scott Trowbridge and others.

According to a follow up post on the 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.
