Ugh: Did Disneyland’s Galaxy’s Edge Steal Title From Sci-Fi Novels?

So let’s briefly go over the growing bullet list of plagiarism claims against Lucasfilm under Disney.


Now another new coincidence has popped up, in the form of a series of books from authors Nick Cole and Jason Anspach, entitled Galaxy’s Edge




Interestingly, here’s what the description says at

The Galaxy is a Dumpster Fire. A hot, stinking, dumpster fire.

Amusing coincidences aside, I posed the question to author Nick Cole to get his perspective on the possibility.



Now, it’s possible Nick is being sarcastic.  But as we’ve seen above, other plagiarism claims have been made, so this isn’t outside the realm of possibility.


The Amazon listing for the first book in Nick Cole’s series states that it was published on June 12, 2017.  That’s roughly two years ago.


Disney announced the “Star Wars Land” in 2015, but the name “Galaxy’s Edge” wasn’t yet attached to it, at least not publicly.  The “Galaxy’s Edge” title for Disney’s “Star Wars Land” was not revealed until July 2017 at the D23 Expo.  That’s roughly a month after Nick Cole’s books were published according to  Interesting timing.


It would be interesting to find out if there are any other similarities between Nick Cole’s Galaxy’s Edge books and Disney’s Galaxy’s Edge theme park.  Or similarities between Nick Cole’s Galaxy’s Edge books, and Delilah Dawson’s Black Spire novel, which provides the back story to the Galaxy’s Edge theme park.


If there are more similarities, then this could be reminiscent of the plagiarism claim against Star Trek Discovery with regards to the Tartigrades point-and-click video game.


But who came up with the name for Disney’s Galaxy’s Edge theme park anyway?  Perhaps one of these women is responsible:
