Galaxy's Edge
May the spires keep you.

Since opening in Disneyland Park and Walt Disney World in 2019, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has been transporting Star Wars fans to a galaxy far, far away. Specifically, to Black Spire Outpost, where guests take their first steps into a fully-realized Outer Rim trading port, complete with weathered buildings, starships, and patrolling First Order troopers, all while original music by John Williams’ provides ambiance in the worn streets. 

Perusing Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities, constructing your own lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop, and grabbing a bite at Oga’s Cantina proves so immersive you may never want to return to home. But when the time finally comes to depart and you find yourself craving more adventures on Batuu, you’re in luck! We’ve got a collection for you. 

We begin this list with a tale of starcrossed lovers in Galaxy’s Edge: A Crash of Fate. Zoraida Córdova has the honor of introducing us to the planet Batuu through the viewpoints of Izzy and Jules, childhood best friends who reunite in Black Spire Outpost and rekindle feelings for each other. Córdova pulls off the impressive feat of setting their stories firmly in the Star Wars galaxy while making them intensely relatable to anyone who wishes they could mend the broken dreams of their youth.

Delilah Dawson takes us on our next visit to Batuu in Galaxy’s Edge: Black Spire. The book introduces us to Vi, a familiar character if you’ve read Dawson’s previous Star Wars novel Phasma. Sent on a mission by General Leia Organa to scout a new potential base for the dwindling Resistance, Vi finds herself in Black Spire Outpost, a shady Outer Rim port that proves a dubious enough location to house on-the-run freedom fighters. This outing to the spires promises a classic adventure story with plenty of action and espionage.

For those hungering for more of the EU’s mythos, we have George Mann’s Myths and Fables, a beautifully illustrated book regaling readers with in-universe stories of galactic legends, including tales surrounding Batuu. Plus, if you ever find yourself traveling to Black Spire Outpost in Disneyland Park or Walt Disney World, you might be able to pick up an exclusive special edition of Myths and Fables with added stories.

Rounding out our stories in the Outer Rim world is the Galaxy’s Edge comic miniseries written by Ethan Sacks and illustrated by Will Sliney. In this five-issue series, readers will explore Black Spire Outpost and discover the history behind a dangerous artifact owned by the infamous Ithorian merchant, Dok-Ondar. 

Finally, if these books leave you wanting to experience more of Batuu, feast your eyes on The Art of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and then get a taste of Black Spire Outpost’s cuisine with Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook. Oh, and while you’re planning your next trip to the Outer Rim trading post, be sure to pack your copy of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge: Traveler’s Guide to Batuu.

With any other franchise, theme park tie-ins might prove underwhelming, but these titles are crafted to reflect the authentic Star Wars experience fans receive at Galaxy’s Edge. So whether you’ve visited the park itself, you’re curious about the history of Black Spire Outpost, or you simply want to experience a unique part of the EU, read on for Youtini’s Galaxy’s Edge Collection.

Izzy and Jules were childhood friends, climbing the spires of Batuu, inventing silly games, and dreaming of adventures they would share one day. Then, Izzy’s family left abruptly, without even a chance to say goodbye. Izzy’s life became one of constant motion, traveling from one world to the next, until her parents were killed and she became a low-level smuggler to make ends meet. Jules remained on Batuu, eventually becoming a farmer like his father, but always yearning for something more.

Now, thirteen years after she left, Izzy is returning to Batuu. She’s been hired to deliver a mysterious parcel, and she just wants to finish the job and get gone. But upon arrival at Black Spire Outpost she runs smack into the one person who still means something to her after all this time: Jules.

The attraction between them is immediate, yet despite Jules seeming to be everything she’s ever needed, Izzy hesitates. How can she drag this good-hearted man into the perilous life she’s chosen?

Jules has been trying to figure out his future, but now all he knows for certain is that he wants to be with Izzy. How can he convince her to take a chance on someone who’s never left the safety of his homeworld?

When Izzy’s job goes wrong, the two childhood friends find themselves on the run. And all their secrets will be revealed as they fight to stay alive…
