Star Wars Land won’t open until 2019, but Disney has given us our first glimpse of the themed areas in development at its California and Florida parks, unveiling a 50-foot, detailed, 3D model. And it looks absolutely awesome.
The following reveal video shows two attractions that will be part of the 14-acre area. One puts guests in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission. The other is a battle ride between the First Order and the Resistance.
Star Wars’ world-building has always been my favorite part of the franchise, and it looks like Disney has nailed that aspect of the park to really transport you to a planet that’s reminiscent of Tatooine’s grittiness and Endor’s forest land. The whole experience takes place at a single outer rim spaceport, so if executed well it can really be an immersive adventure.
And what this model didn’t even show (aside from the three-hour long queue lines) were the full-scale AT-AT walkers that will reportedly be inside the First Order battle ride.
Here’s some more information on the newly revealed attractions, via ABC:
So guests will actually get to pilot the Millennium Falcon, which has been a fantasy at some point for every Star Wars fan.
It may be a tiny model, but I’m ready to jump into the cockpit right now. Judge me by my size, do you?
