Sprite was a carbonated soda available in plastic orb bottles and paper cups at various eateries throughout Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu. Imported by Jat Kaa, a Lurmen male from the planet Mygeeto, the drink was also sold to travelers and locals via his company Jat Kaa's Coolers at pop-up locations around the outpost and in the nearby ancient ruins.

Description[edit | edit source]

Sprite was a clear carbonated soda that was packaged in green, spherical plastic orbs with white Aurebesh writing that read "Sprite" surrounded by a black, angular border over a yellow hexagon. The beverage was sealed using a metallic, screw-on cap with several rectangular protrusions. It was also served from dispensers with ice in large- and regular-sized paper cups. The drink was safe for humans to consume.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

During the war between the First Order and Resistance, the Lurmen male Jat Kaa, hailing from the planet Mygeeto, had Sprite bottles imported to Black Spire Outpost on the Outer Rim world of Batuu. Workers for his company, Jat Kaa's Coolers, sold them at various pop-up locations throughout the outpost and the nearby ancient ruins.[3]

Kaa also purchased multiple R-series droids from Mubo,[3] the Utai proprietor of the Droid Depot,[5] and had them reprogrammed to drive purpose-built vehicles around Black Spire Outpost selling bottles of Sprite and other beverages.[3] J4-KC was the droid that sold Sprite.[3]

Around the same time, the bottled beverage was served in Black Spire's market at Kat Saka's Kettle,[1] while cups filled with the soda were available at Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo[2] and Ronto Roasters.[4]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Sprite is a fictional product based on the real-life 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, with the idea originating 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," referring to the Batuu setting, specifically intending to have the bottles look like 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, as it also was present in aiding Disney since the opening of Disneyland in 1955.[6]
