    Will the Jawas be returning to Hollywood Studios when the new Star Wars Park opens in August 2019?

    Utinii! Hey, Tammy and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. This is a question that seems to be asked a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. After many encounters with Jawas in the Cantina at Star Wars Launch Bay and during the famed Star Wars Weekends, I also wonder whether we will see Jawas bargaining on the streets of the Black Spire Outpost.

    As of right now, we have no exact information about all the specific alien lifeforms inhabiting planet Batuu. What we do know is that it is "an infamous stop for traders, adventurers, and smugglers traveling around the Outer Rim and Wild Space." I would suspect those tiny cloaks with glowing yellow eyes will be around. Fortunately for Guests of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios, we will get to see what transpires on the other side of the galaxy when Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge open at Disneyland Park in Anaheim opens in a few days. I would suggest you angle your "rectenna" towards the Disney Parks Blog as they will have the most up to date information that is out-of-this-world.

    Disney Dad Tip: Before your trip in October make sure to download the Play Disney Parks mobile app where your Star Wars: Datapad will allow you to explore Batuu for hidden secrets, translate transmissions, and either help the First Order or the Resistance. Which will you join?

    Utinii and may the Force be with you,
