Take a look at Disney's newly revealed 'Star Wars land'

Disney World fans await theme parks news from D23

Check Out This Amazing Behind-The-Scenes Footage From THE LAST JEDI

It's time to get really, really excited, "Star Wars" fans: Disney has released new photos of what the space-themed lands at both Disney World and Disneyland parks should look like.

At this weekend's D23 expo in California, the Star Wars custodian will unleash a 50-foot wide 3D model of the 14-acre site, which you can see in the images and video below.

Ahead of this weekend's likely onslaught of announcements at D23, Disney chose to bless us with a detailed look their new Star Wars lands, coming to both Disneyland and Disney World. In addition, convention attendees will see "models, artwork and media that provide a first-ever look at some of the locations, starships, creatures, and droids" that they will see first-hand when they visit Star Wars Land. Both parks are expected to open in 2019.

Disney has previously revealed that one of the entry points to the new section of the park will be along Big Thunder Trail in Frontierland, and the company also has plans to add an "Avatar" land to its theme parks. Scott Mallwitz, executive creative director at Walt Disney Imagineering, explains "as you move through the areas, you might be recruited to join one side or the other". The presentation is scheduled for 3 p.m.

One question, however, remains: is Disney going to rely on just those two rides and then hope that additional Star Wars love will keep the interest going?

The main attractions at the parks will include a "secret mission", where visitors can control the famed Millennium Falcon and another sequence, where guests take part in a battle between the First Order and the Resistance - the two entities at odds in the latest trilogy of Star Wars films.

These new parks will launch in 2019, so they're still a ways off.
