Disney CEO Bob Iger has announced that the Star Wars Land theme park will open its gates to the public in 2019, the same year as Star Wars Episode IX comes out. The theme park is a homage to the world created by George Lucas and his ragtag group of intergalactic rebels, villains and misfits. It was also announced last year by Han Solo actor Harrison Ford himself.

The 14-acre attraction is being built in Disney World at Orlando, Florida at the moment, with a similar park also being constructed in Disneyland in Anaheim, California. The company said "Each 14-acre park represents the largest "single-themed land expansion" that Disney has pursued," according to Travel + Leisure. Both parks will allow guests to experience an isolated trading port and one of the last stops before they travel through space, a "never-before-seen planet", where the movie's characters become real.

There will be a Millennium Falcon ride, a ride simulating a battle, which would give guests 'the opportunity to pilot the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy'. There is also a street market and restaurant, and plenty of high-functioning aliens and droids scattered throughout the immersive experience.

News of this coming attraction was previously revealed at the D23 convention back in 2015, when Disney's CEO Bob Iger said that he is excited to announce the next chapter in the long and exciting history between Star Wars and Disney Parks. He also said that through each new attraction and new land that they create, the boundaries of what is possible is being pushed, reports Metro Co UK.

With new movies coming up every year, with the franchise expanding and the world-building way behind the original Star Wars trilogy, it is difficult to speculate what else will be included in Star Wars Land. We can not wait for 2019 to be here.
