"There's no "Star Wars" fans here, are there?" he questioned. Possibly, probably, and most likely.

Star Tours: The Adventures Continue has already added Batuu to the ride experience, giving a peek of what to expect from the never-seen-in-a-Star-Wars-movie world that Disney's opening in 2019 with Galaxy's Edge.

Disney announced Friday that the name of the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge planet will be Batuu, and that the Star Tours attraction will now end on the newest Star Wars attraction. Riders on Star Tours will now complete their journeys by arriving a spaceport on that planet.

"This remote outpost on the galaxy's edge was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes, but its prominence was bypassed by the rise of hyperspace travel". There will also be weekly battle challenges between the Resistance and The First Order, where only the winning side will unlock special prizes such as a Sphero Droid and Lego set.

According to WDWNT, the update also comprises of two new opening sequences with Kylo Ren and First Order Stormtroopers, and two new transmission sequences featuring Maz Kanata and Poe Dameron.

Another scene from the film will be included in the Star Tours ride, though it has not yet been finalized.

Star Wars is owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.
