"The Imagineering and Lucasfilm creative team traveled to Istanbul and Marrakesh during the Blue Sky planning stage for Galaxy’s Edge in search of inspiration for the Black Spire Outpost village on the Star Wars planet of Batuu, the setting for the new 14-acre themed lands. The research trip took the team to marketplaces, mosques, temples and landmarks in the two ancient cities that served as architectural and design guideposts during the construction of the remote spaceport on the outer rim of the Star Wars galaxy."
