These authentic lands will have two signature attractions, including the ability to take the controls of one of the most recognizable ships in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon, on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle.

Ambitious plans to bring Star Wars to life in the two parks include creating Disney’s largest single-themed land expansions ever at 14-acres each, transporting 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.

The new land will be located in the Big Thunder Ranch area and also take over some back stage areas.

while we're waiting for th enew land, Space Mountain will be transformed into Hyperspace Mountain, Star Tours will add characters from the new "Force Awakens" and there will be a Star Wars Launch Bay where guests can peek behind the scenes of the movies.
