ANAHEIM, Calif.—It’s late afternoon, and the sky is turning pink behind Black Spire Outpost, where workers prepare to weld seams on a docked starship, the Millennium Falcon. A 40-ton crane hoists a radar dish onto a control tower, both weathered just so to make this haven for traders and rogues seem as timeless as the crags and petrified tree forms that surround it.
This is Batuu, the most distant planet in the Star Wars universe, and the most ambitious land ever built in a Walt Disney park. The expansion, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, opens here in Disneyland next summer, followed in late fall by a twin in Disney World near Orlando, Fla. Barron’s recently toured the Disneyland site, a first for the press this far into construction.
