Getting to that galaxy far, far away just got a whole lot easier.
ABC aired Disneyland 60, a star-studded TV special full of tributes for the park’s 60th anniversary, on Sunday night, and it gave viewers a sneak peek at the upcoming Star Wars lands that will eventually open at Disney’s Florida and California theme parks.
“Star Wars is, for lack of a better word, awesome,” said Harrison Ford, who introduced the sneak-peek video. “I’m so blessed that I had the opportunity to be a part of it, to talk in these iconic locations, and soon, you’ll be able to do that as well. Not in a galaxy far, far away, but in a place close to home.”
Construction is far from done, and there were no images of the actual, physical locations. But Disney did unveil plenty of concept art—and it looks incredible.

Park visitors will be able to control the Millennium Falcon; participate in a battle between the Resistance and the First Order, the warring factions in The Force Awakens; eat Star Wars food in either a cantina or a high-end restaurant, and explore many of the locations (and meet the aliens) seen in the saga.
Will there be Jakku food? If so, we’ll take all the portions, please.
It may be out of this world compared to the rest of Disney’s theme parks, but we’ll be right at home.
