Explore Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and All Its Starships and Speeders

By Zach Johnson

One step inside the Millennium Falcon and you’ll likely find yourself quoting Han Solo and telling a friend, “Chewie, we’re home.” Starships and other vehicles play pivotal roles in every Star Wars story—and in Disney Parks’ Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, planet Batuu’s landscape is populated with a range of transportation vehicles, including iconic ships and practical speeders.

With both the Resistance and First Order establishing bases on the planet, evidence of their arrival permeates Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge (just take a look at the starfighters and transport shuttles). But Black Spire Outpost is also a community full of residents just trying to go about their daily lives, so their transportation is represented, too—and everything is built at full scale.

Before Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens May 31, 2019, at Disneyland Park in California and August 29, 2019, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida, learn about the ships and speeders:

A-wing Starfighter
Location: Resistance Mobile Command Post
Description: With its sleek arrowhead shape, streamlined cockpit, and massive twin engines, the A-wing suggests raw speed. Used first by the Rebel Alliance and now the Resistance, it is well suited for quick strikes.

First Order TIE echelon
Location: Docking Bay 9 (First Order Encampment)
Description: A new assault vehicle in the TIE (twin ion engine) series, this echelon shuttle is used by the First Order mainly for small troop and cargo transport.

Location: Black Spire Station
Description: There are two models of speeders in for repairs in the garage at Black Spire Station: an X-34 model, similar to one Luke Skywalker uses in Star Wars: A New Hope, and a Jakku speeder, built from scavenged parts.

Millennium Falcon Interior

Millennium Falcon
Location: Spaceport
Description: Sometimes lovingly referred to as “the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy,” the YT-1300 Corellian freighter is currently being loaned to Hondo Ohnaka, the former pirate who owns and operates Ohnaka Transport Solutions.

Sienar-Chall Utilipede-Transport
Location: Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo
Description: Chef Strono “Cookie” Tuggs uses this modified shuttle as a mobile kitchen and restaurant, jumping from one planet to the next as a “traveling diner for diners traveling.” It’s currently atop Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, turning the hangar into a dining establishment.

X-Wing Fighter Plane

X-wing Starfighter
Location: Resistance Mobile Command Post
Description: A versatile ship balancing speed and firepower, the X-wing is a nimble starfighter used in dogfights first by the Rebel Alliance and now the Resistance. Its name comes from the “X” its four wings create when they’re locked in attack position.
