This land is NOT YET OPEN!
It is expected to open on August 29, 2019.

A Star Wars-themed land, named Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, is being constructed at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World. The new area will officially open on August 29, 2019 although the Rise of the Resistance attraction will not open until a later date.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will be the largest ever, single-themed land expansion at Walt Disney World. The land will have Guests transported to a never-before-seen planet that is going to be a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space.

Galaxy's Edge is also known as the Black Spire Outpost, a crossroads on the far-flung planet of Batuu. Not long ago, the First Order showed up searching for something, although what that something is remains unknown. Even more recently, the Resistance set up a camp in the wooded area of the Outpost and began, well... resisting.

The area has three main sections, the most southerly is where the Resistance is. The tree-lined area contains the entrance to the Rise of the Resistance attraction as well as a few well-known ships like a land speeder and an X-wing fighter. Next is the shopping and dining area where you find most of the inhabitants of the town. Lastly is the section controlled by the Red Fury, the 709th battalion of the First Order. There you will find a TIE Echelon fighter guarded by some aggressive stormtroopers.

The black spires themselves are long-petrified trees and structures have sprung up around and in them. One in particular is blacker than the rest but no one really knows why, but they do know it must mean something. When you are in Galaxy's Edge you are on the planet of Batuu, not on Earth. Do not expect the inhabitants to discuss Terran problems, but do expect them to talk at length about the goings on of the Black Spire Outpost.
