Batuu, The Planet From 'Galaxy's Edge', Added to 'Star Tours'

By: Dominic Jones

In addition to the launch of the Crait adventure in the Star Tours: The Adventures Continue ride at Disney theme parks, today also saw the launch of another new adventure taking riders to the planet Batuu.  This marks Batuu's first appearance in a Star Wars project, however it is a planet that fans will be seeing a lot more of in the coming years.  Batuu is "in-universe" the planet on which Disney's Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge theme park expansion will be based.  Galaxy's Edge is slated to open in 2019 at Disneyland in California and Disney World in Florida.

In addition to Batuu, a new sequel era opening scene with Kylo Ren and the First Order chasing riders was created for the ride and hologram messages from Poe Dameron and Maz Kanata have also been added to the ride.
