The much-anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be opening at Disneyland Resort on May 31, and at Walt Disney World Resort on August 29.

The 14-acre projects are Disney’s largest-ever single-themed expansions, and they promise to blurr the lines between fantasy and reality.

Take a look at epic experience in the video below.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will transport guests to the planet of Batuu, where they will sample galactic food and beverages, explore merchant shops, engage with the land via a mobile app, and even being treated to new iconic theme songs.

The attraction will be split into two phases.

Phase one: Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run will invite guests into the cockpit of the “fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy”, where they will take control of the ship as it hurdles through space.

Phase two: Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance places guests in the middle of the Rebellion, as they actively fight against the First Order, including a face-off with Kylo Ren.
