On Sunday, February 21, during the “Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60” special that aired on ABC-TV, actor Harrison Ford, Star Wars’ Han Solo, shared some exciting new details about the Star Wars-themed lands planned for Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts.

Guests will be able to step aboard The Millennium Falcon and actually pilot the fastest ship in the galaxy, steering the vessel through space, firing the laser cannons, in complete control of the experience. And with the arrival of the First Order to the planet, visitors will find themselves in the middle of a tense battle between stormtroopers and Resistance fighters.

No dates or timeframes were given for the development of these new lands, and construction has not officially begun, although many attractions in both Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios are closing to make room for the new lands.
