The phrase “Star Wars theme park” is enough to inspire joy in our nerdy little hearts. The concept art for Disney‘s first Star Wars park already looked amazing, and now you can see what’s under construction.

This drone footage gives us a sneak peek at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Anaheim, California. The finished product will follow a familiar Star Wars aesthetic, featuring a life-size Millennium Falcon. However, you shouldn’t mistake that architecture for existing locations like Naboo or Takodana. The park is actually a new planet called Batuu. It’s a remote outpost with a spaceport for smugglers and adventurers, outside the reach of the First Order.

Star Wars is nothing if not immersive, after all.

This flyover gives us a bare-bones look at what Batuu will look like when the park opens next year.
