This weekend Disney Parks revealed the latest details of their new Star Wars-themed lands coming to Disneyland and Disney World in 2019 and fans around the world are freaking out. More than just an area with a few themed rides, the minds from Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Imagineering revealed the new lands will immerse visitors into a brand new storyline where your actions within the park will have consequences. Yes, it’s like being in a Star Wars movie. We can hear your inner-child freaking out right now.

For example, you’ll be able to go on a “ride” where you pilot the Millennium Falcon — but if you do a bad job, a certain hairy co-pilot might have some angry words for you when you visit a nearby cantina. You’ll have opportunities to work for the Resistance (yay) or to collaborate with the First Order (boo).


Disney Parks released the following statement of what you can expect:


“The team shared exciting new details about the story behind this mysterious destination somewhere on the Outer Rim — lying on the edge of the Unknown Regions. The remote village was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes, but the prominence of the outpost has been bypassed with the rise of hyperspace travel.


Now home to those who prefer less attention, it has become a thriving port for smugglers, rogue traders and adventurers traveling between the frontier and uncharted space. It’s also a convenient safe-haven for others intent on avoiding the expanding reach of the First Order.


Unusual characters from across the galaxy have landed here, preferring the “no questions asked” environment as well as easy access to exotic supplies and an abundant supply of ready rogues looking to join a crew for their next adventure.”


Here’s an exclusive look at a video which gives some insight into this incredible new experience:




Disney Imagineers also revealed that they’re already working on upgrading the pre-existing Star Wars ride, Star Tours, based on The Last Jedi. If you missed the brand new trailer released this weekend, check it out here!
