Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is set in the outpost of Black Spire, on the planet Batuu. It’s described by Disney as a remote outpost on the galaxy’s Outer Rim, on the frontier of Wild Space. (That’s the uncharted region past all known star systems.)
Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities will sell “Star Wars” memorabilia and treats like “ancient Jedi and Sith artifacts,” Disney says, while Resistance Supply and First Order Cargo stores will give visitors the chance to buy clothing and pins for whichever cause they support.
Yes, the ‘Star Wars’ cantina has alcohol
According to Disney, Oga’s Cantina is a place where “even the blaster-bolt scorches on the walls tell a story.”
Reminiscent of the infamous watering hole audiences were introduced to in 1977’s “Star Wars: A New Hope,” Oga’s Cantina features a moody atmosphere and entertainment from DJ R-3X — known to many park visitors as Rex, the original pilot droid from the Star Tours ride in Tomorrowland.
The cantina is the first place in Disneyland to sell alcohol to the public — previously its been available at the private Club 33 near the Pirates of the Caribbean ride (but only to members), and at the California Adventures park across from Disneyland.
