Ever since Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has been announced, we knew that this would be a new planet within the world of Star Wars. The planet is described as a “remote frontier outpost.” This planet now has a name, Batuu.

Disney also mentioned in a new blog post that the planet is “home to those who prefer to stay out of the mainstream, it has become a thriving port for smugglers, rogue traders and adventurers traveling between the frontier and uncharted space.” Disney also goes on mentioning that the planet is a safe haven for those trying to avoid the First Order.

Guests can now officially get a sneak peek of this new planet by riding the newly updated  Star Tours – The Adventures Continue attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disneyland. The ride now ends with guests getting off on the planet Batuu.

Of course, you’ll have to wait until 2019 to officially visit Batuu when Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disneyland.
