SWGE GUIDE: Meet the Characters, Droids, and Creatures of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland
The Black Spire Outpost on Batuu in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is a world like no other ever before explored at the Happiest Place on Earth and this new world is chock-full of new and familiar characters and creatures to encounter. Whether it’s film favorite characters, sassy and mechanical droids, or a varying assortment of wildlife on the planet, you’ll never know who or what you’ll see when you explore this new Disneyland expansion!
Here’s a look at the characters, droids, and creatures you could encounter…
Location: Resistance Encampment
Sometime after the Battle of Crait at the conclusion of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” Resistance hero Rey made her way to Batuu. Here, she leads the recruitment effort for the Resistance by actively inspiring supporters of the Resistance along the galaxy’s Outer Rim.
Locations: Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, Resistance Encampment
A legendary Wookiee warrior and Han Solo’s co-pilot aboard the Millennium Falcon, Chewbacca (“Chewie,” for short) came to Batuu aboard the damaged Falcon. He needs special parts to fix his ship and the Resistance needs fresh supplies, so Chewie made a deal to loan Hondo Ohnaka the Millennium Falcon for a few smuggling runs in exchange for the items he desperately needs.
Location: Docking Bay 9 (First Order Encampment)
The Supreme Leader of the First Order strikes fear in the hearts of his foes with his imposing mask, long dark robes, iconic hilted red lightsaber and notoriously violent temper. As a highly trained, Force-sensitive warrior, Kylo Ren is determined to root out the Resistance and travels to Batuu to search for and destroy any traces he can find.

Location: Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run
Established in the “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” animated television series, Hondo Ohnaka is a Weequay pirate turned “legitimate” businessman (although most would call him a smuggler). A rough-around-the-edges rogue, he is always looking out for the next big score. Hondo founded Ohnaka Transport Solutions, which operates out of Black Spire Outpost and specializes in acquiring or delivering restricted items. In Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, he asks guests to help him acquire some prized cargo of importance to both the First Order and the Resistance. And, of course, Hondo will be pocketing a sizeable profit along the way.
Location: Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities
A larger-than-life collector of all things odd and hard to find, Dok-Ondar buys, sells and trades valuable items in his intergalactic antiquities shop. The Ithorian is a proud curator, amassing a collection unrivaled in the galaxy. He is also known as the “gatekeeper” of the black market in Black Spire Outpost, so locals know not to cross him. Guests can see him working at his desk, taking inventory and barking the occasional order at his assistants between incoming calls.
Location: Toydarian Toymaker
Zabaka is a Toydarian, the flying alien species first seen in “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.” Her small stall has thrived in Black Spire Outpost by selling quality toys and through her good relationships with other proprietors in town. Guests can see the silhouette of Zabaka going about her daily business through her workshop window.
Location: Savi’s Workshop – Handbuilt Lightsabers
As believers in the ways of the Force, the Gatherers are a group of men and women dedicated to restoring balance in the galaxy by passing on ancient knowledge. Part of their mission is guiding the next generation of Jedi-hopefuls in building their own unique lightsabers.
Location: Black Spire Outpost
Vi Moradi is a spy and intelligence officer for the Resistance who traveled to Batuu to scout the planet for its viability as a potential Resistance recruiting station. This strong-willed, hot-tempered, quick-witted woman is trying to stay one step ahead of the First Order while recruiting for the Resistance as she traverses the twisting pathways of Black Spire Outpost.
Location: Oga’s Cantina
This Blutopian crime boss of Black Spire Outpost is a mysterious figure. She is never seen, but is often heard yelling at her servers inside Oga’s Cantina. Her influence stretches throughout the outpost, as her fingers are in every business transaction and she knows everyone coming and going.
Location: Marketplace, Spaceport
Usually travelling in pairs, you can spot the imposing soldiers in most parts of Batuu; their presence, along with the First Order, a growing threat to peace in the area.
Location: Oga’s Cantina
This former Star Tours pilot droid, known as “Rex,” crash landed on Batuu and was reprogrammed into a DJ by Mubo at the Droid Depot. Mubo gave Rex to Oga Garra to pay off a debt, and “DJ Rex” now provides the musical entertainment inside Oga’s Cantina – and he’s still as chatty as ever.
Location: Ronto Roasters
As a former smelter droid, 8D-J8 was reprogrammed to do one thing: turn the meats on the spit at Ronto Roasters, ensuring they are cooked to perfection.
This sassy droid is Hondo’s most capable astromech and serves as an automated repair mechanic on the smuggler’s many starships. He calls Hondo out on many occasions, always keeping the pirate on his toes.
