The outpost was located on the planet Batuu in the Outer Rim Territories and was considered one of the last stops before Wild Space in the Unknown Regions. The outpost consisted of a spaceport, a cantina, and a market.
HistoryEditBefore the invention of hyperspace travel, the outpost was a busy crossroads for those traveling along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes. However, with the rise of the hyperdrive and new hyperspace routes, the planet was bypassed, and the outpost eventually became home to those who did not want to be found. It evolved into a thriving spaceport for smugglers, rogue traders, and adventurers traveling between the galactic frontier and uncharted space. The port provided easy access to exotic supplies and potential new recruits, further enticing adventurers to stop by.
Though it was used as a hideout for those looking to avoid the expanding reaches of the First Order, there was both a Resistance and First Order presence at some point during the conflict between the two factions. A battle between the factions took place in the outpost. The Millennium Falcon once landed there while involved in one of Hondo Ohnaka's endeavors.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Walt Disney Company CEO Robert Iger first announced at the D23 Expo on August 15, 2015 that the company would be building a Star Wars-themed land in Disneyland Park at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California and in Disney's Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. The announcement stated that these lands would be fourteen acres in size, making them the largest single land expansions in company history. The two attractions announced for the land included a ride that puts guests behind the controls of the Millennium Falcon and a ride that throws guests into the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance. it was also announced that the lands' setting would be on a yet-to-be-seen planet on the edge of the Outer Rim Territories, just before Wild Space. During the Q1 FY17 Earnings call for The Walt Disney Company on February 7, 2017, Iger announced that the new lands would open in the year 2019. During the "Star Wars and Disney Parks: A Galaxy in the Making" panel at Celebration Orlando, Asa Kalama of Walt Disney Imagineering stated that what they were building would be canonical.
