Can it be 2019 already? We're getting our first detailed look at Disney's Star Wars Land and it looks pretty damn awesome.
Disney unveiled a physical 3D model of the eagerly awaited Star Wars Land at D23 Expo -- their three-day fan convention in Anaheim, CA -- on Thursday. The never-before seen planet where it's set will feature both a Resistance base and a detachment of the First Order. According to Nerdist, this planet, which is a bit of a backwater trading hub, "has become occupied for a specific reason."
The model showed some familiar characters, including BB8 and Dameron Poe, but the new attraction will also introduce new characters not featured in the films.
Among the things we can't wait to explore in person: The Millennium Falcon ride that will let you drive Han Solo's famed ship yourself and another E-ticket ride that will put you in the middle of a fight between the Resistance and the First Order. According to Nerdist, it appears you'll be riding in a First Order Fleet Transport.
You'll also be able to walk into the Mos Eisley Cantina -- although we assume it'll be a more of a kid-friendly restaurant than a "wretched hive of scum and villainy." There will also be droids and aliens on hand to greet customers. (Please tell us we'll also get to shoot Greedo at some point!)
Stars Wars Land -- which is under construction at both Disneyland in California and Disney World in Florida -- promises 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," according to the DisneyParks blog. The specific opening date has not yet been announced.
