STAR TOURS Re-Opens With STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Content; Reveals New Planet Batuu

New Star Tours attraction not only sends riders to the planet Crait from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but also introduces an entirely new planet called Batuu, which is home to the park's new Star Wars Land.

Disney's Star Wars attraction Star Tours re-opened today with fresh new content from the upcoming film Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The updated ride now takes us to the planet Crait, which we got a glimpse of in the teaser trailer earlier this year. It appears, however, that another surprise awaits.

As reported by multiple park guests and outlets on social media, the ride actually concludes by landing on a new planet called Batuu, which turns out is home of the remote trading port where Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge (Disneyland and Disney World's new Star Wars Land) will be set. Despite the new area not opening until 2019, it's fitting that this would be the final location of the attraction.

It's unclear what sort of role, if any, the planet Batuu will play in The Last Jedi or future Star Wars films, but it will certainly play a big one in Disney parks. As for the planet Crait, which will debut in The Last Jedi, multiple riders liken it to the crystal cave segment from the original Star Tours attraction.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open in 2019, first at the Disneyland Resort and later in the year at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Crait will really come alive when Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters December 15th.
