Diet Coke was a beverage found at Black Spire Outpost on Batuu.[1] It came in spherical "orb" bottles composed primarily of a silver color with a red line down the middle as well as white font inside the red, with its brand name printed on the side in stylized Aurebesh. It was stored in red-colored box-shaped containers filled with ice to maintain a low temperature.[6]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Diet Coke is a product based on the real-life sugar-free and zero-calorie soft fountain drink of the same name made by the Coca-Cola Company. Specialized spherical containers for the products were created specifically for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.[7]

The idea originated from a tour conducted by the Walt Disney Imagineering members at the Coke Archives, in particular the Spencerian script used for the various products' logos. Matt Cooper, an associate industrial designer at Coke, mentioned that the resulting project challenged his design team to "take their brands places they've never taken them to," namely the Batuu setting. They intended to design the bottles to look as if they were pulled off a ship or left behind at Batuu and then repurposed, all while keeping to the aesthetics to the Star Wars franchise. This is not the first time Coca-Cola has partnered with Disney for one of its products. Coca-Cola was present in aiding Disney since the opening of Disneyland in 1955.[6]

A bottle of Diet Coke appears as an easter egg in the 2020 web series Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge, a children's gameshow set in the Star Wars galaxy. The bottle can be seen during a non-canon competition portion of each episode, appearing near the Bridge of Balance, an obstacle in the show's Jedi Temple set.[8]
