Our story editor, Margaret Kerrison, shared for the first time that the name of the village is called Black Spire Outpost. She also shared some of the history behind the name and how this village is closely associated with the geological formations that surround it.

    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.

    I wonder if this place is in the lore somewhere or if they just made it up.

    Just done a quick check and it does have a page on Wookiepedia (amazing name for a wiki!), it looks like it is mentioned in some novels but they are all recent or in progress. So it's possible they have been made partly with the plan of incorporating it into the storyline.

    I have always loved Star Wars, and we are waiting for this to open for our next trip, but I'm getting a little concerned. You see, I think I'm getting Star Wars Fatigue. Part of me is just kind of over it. With the latest numbers for Solo being out, I hope everyone else isn't feeling the same. Otherwise, Disney could have some big problems....Just thinking...
