New Droid Bard Joins “Fire of the Rising Moons” in Disneyland’s Galaxy’s Edge

Star Wars fans visiting Disneyland Park can look forward to a new character during the “Fire of the Rising Moons” nighttime spectacular! A modified R1-series astromech droid named Bard has made his debut at Black Spire Outpost in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

Introducing the celebration is Tohan Lege, the storyteller known as the Lore-weaver. Pursued by those in power who would silence his voice, Tohan adopted Black Spire as his home and wrote of its colorful history and the fiery spirit at its heart. His droid, who he fondly called Bard, allows us to hear the Lore-weaver in his own words, each night as Black Spire celebrates the Fire of the Rising Moons.

He met and spoke to anyone he could, and began to record its history. To ensure that the stories would endure, Tohan found an old astromech droid left behind at the Depot. The mechanics helped him get it working with scrap parts and luck. Tohan called the droid Bard, and together they recorded the Lore-weaver’s stories, until there were no more to tell.

Including selections from composer John Williams’ Star Wars film scores, Fire of the Rising Moons can be experienced from multiple areas, such as the Black Spire Spaceport (near Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run), the TIE Echelon docking platform (near First Order Cargo) and the speeder garage (near Droid Depot). Your MagicBand+ will also add to the ceremony’s atmosphere with colorful lights and ambient vibrations.


“Fire of the Rising Moons” is a nighttime experience in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge that, on select nights, highlights a different view of the stunning Disneyland Park fireworks display, with musical accompaniment. The experience debuted as part of Season of the Force and will continue performances past the season conclusion on June 2.
