Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is opening in just two weeks. The new addition to Disneyland has tons to offer, both in attractions and dining. We just recently told you about the food guide for the theme park expansion. And now we are getting some new information about one of the aesthetic parts of the area. known as Black Spire Outpost

Within Black Spire Outpost, guests will be seeing not just amazing structures and the Millennium Falcon. They will also see these amazing, 135 foot tall Black Spires (from which the “outpost” gets its name). But how did Disney create them?

According to a recent article in the OC Register, Disney Imagineers have built the spires from the ground up, and from what we know, they are going to be incredible.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge: Building BlackSpire Out post

The inspiration for the Spires came from the Petrified Forest National Park in Northeastern Arizona. Consequently, Disney Imagineers took that inspiration to create the massive Spires for Galaxy’s Edge.

These Spires are going to make the area even cooler. We have known for a while that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is going the largest expansion in the Disney Parks. The land itself is going to have it’s own story, but it will still be connected to Star Wars canon.

The new area is going to play a massive role in the stories that guests make in the land. Once guests enter the land, whatever the first action they do is will affect their land wide story.

I’m so excited for this new area to open. And to see what the whole land will look like when it’s complete.
