“At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge,guests will be transportedto the planet of Batuu, a remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge that was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes,” the company said in a news release.

The new land will feature a ride that “lets guests take the controls of Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission” as well asanother ridethat “puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.” 

It’s a safe bet that there will also be a few merchandising opportunities. 

A second and largely identical version of “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” is also under construction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World in Florida. A hotel themed to the franchise is also planned.

Both “Star Wars” lands are set to open next year, although an exact date has not yet been announced.
