If you’ve ever been to Disney World or DisneyLand and you’re a Star Wars fans you’re definitely going to go to the Star Wars section and get on the area’s ride, Star Tours. The last time I got on Star Tours it was two years before The Force Awakens even came out and so the worlds we flew through were of the original and prequel trilogy but it was still an absolute blast. And now a new planet has come to the marvelous and very fun attraction, Star Tours, and I’m excited to share it with you.
This is the planet, Batuu and it’s a remote world that’s home to smugglers, adventurers, etc. and because it’s a little off stream it’s also a very good hiding place for those who want to escape the expanding reach of the First Order. Hmm, maybe I’m reading into this new planet a little too hard but I think Disney is secretly showing everybody another new location that’s going to make its debut in The Last Jedi and this is why I think that.
First off, if this is a planet that’s safe from the eyes of the First Order then wouldn’t this be a lovely refuge for the fleeing Resistance? I would think so.
Secondly, there was reports that they were filming some scenes in Croatia and in the behind-the-scenes video that appeared this July there was a moment where it showed cameramen making a beautiful shot of Croatia. If you look at this new planet the buildings do look very Croatian and if you add some CGI they could easily make Croatia a beautiful planet in the galaxy of Star Wars.
And third, it said in the original article, which was on starwars.com, that Batuu is a place where people go off to epic adventures. That definitely sounds correct when it comes to The Last Jedi because I’m sure they’re going to be lots of epic adventures in the movie.
Now I might be completely wrong about this theory but when does Star Tours just get a new planet added to its long list of planets less than a month before a Star Wars movie comes out? That’s kind of a huge clue that this really is a new planet from The Last Jedi if you ask me. And there’s also the fact that they aren’t really showing anything when it comes to the Resistance side of the story for The Last Jedi. We know Rey is training with Luke, we know a little bit about Kylo Ren, but the side with Finn and Poe and General Leia, they’re keeping us pretty much in the dark about that side of the story…for some particular reason. If I’m right and this is a new planet that’ll be in The Last Jedi I’m going to be the happiest person ever.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day. May the Force Be With You.
