A galaxy far, far away is about to get a lot closer.
Star Wars Land will open its doors to the public in 2019, Disney has revealed.
The interactive homage to the world created by George Lucas was first announced last year by Han Solo actor Harrison Ford, and it’s been in the works ever since.
We now know there will be two 14-acre Star Wars Lands, one in California and one in Florida. Each park will be the largest “single-themed land expansion” Disney has ever undertaken, and both are set to transport guests to a “never-before-seen planet—a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space—where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life.”
Star Wars lands will include a Millennium Falcon ride, a battle simulation ride, a street market and restaurant, and a plethora of high-functioning aliens and droids.
Concept arts for the parks also feature a flying X-Wing above a forested landscape peppered with buildings, markets and landing zones.
