Iconic Ships and Other Vehicles in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

Starships and other vehicles play integral roles in Star Wars stories, almost becoming characters all their own. That’s why in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the planet Batuu’s landscape is populated with all manner of transportation vehicles, from iconic ships to small, utilitarian speeders.

With both the Resistance and First Order making encampments on the planet, the evidence of their arrival is all around Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, including several 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, as well.

As guests explore Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the presence of these ships and vehicles – built at full scale – becomes yet another layer of immersive storytelling that deepens engagement with the land. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge which opened 31 May, 2019, at Disneyland Park in California and will open on 29 Aug, 2019, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.*

A-wing Starfighter
Location: Resistance Mobile Command Post
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)
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.


Landspeeders
Location: Black Spire Station
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
Location: Spaceport
Once flown by iconic smuggler Han Solo and his Wookiee first mate, Chewbacca, the Millennium Falcon is 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
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 is currently atop Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, turning the hangar into a dining establishment in Black Spire Outpost.


X-wing Starfighter
Location: Resistance Mobile Command Post
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.
