Sneak peek at Disney's 'Star Wars' galaxy not so far away

MARVEL STUDIOS Teases 4 Big Reveals & More From D23 Expo Floor

Since acquiring the Star Wars brand back in 2012, Disney has teased fans about plans for an entire theme park dedicated to the saga.

The lands are set on a remote planet that hasn't been seen before in Star Wars lore.

On Thursday night (13 July) at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, Florida, company bosses unveiled what has been described as "the most ambitious land" that Disney has ever worked on.

The new park will be anchored by two key attractions.

Disney will display a model of the parks at its D23 Expo this weekend and posted images of the rendering online.

The developer's community manager, Sammie Kang, chimed in on Twitter confirming that the update will also include an FOV slider . Third-person is the common format, used for surveying large areas for enemy players since you get a wider perspective of the map.

James Washington a unanimous All-Big 12 Preseason Team selection
In the season finale against in-state rival K-State, Armstrong provided six stops - 3.0 of which were for negative yards. Smith started all 13 games in the 2016 season and tied for the fifth-most sacks in a year in Baylor history.

Though the major park panel at D23 won't happen until Saturday, Disney could hardly contain its excitement in showing off the planned landscape of the new science fiction land coming to Disneyland and Walt Disney World.

There are also said to be three different entrances, where you'll be recruited to either the Resistance or First Order, or you'll walk into something neutral like the Mos Eisley Cantina.

The scale of the intricately detailed model is impressive as it shows an attraction that appears bigger and more immersive than the recently opened "Avatar"-inspired land, Pandora, at Disney's Animal Kingdom". "I mean, even the way you choose enter this part of the park will have an impact on your adventure". And because now (in the Star Wars universe, anyway) basically everyone uses light speed to barrel around the galaxy, this spaceport isn't quite as popular or well-known as it once was. It's not clear what the new rides will look like, but one promises to let visitors "take the controls" of the famous space vessel.

And in 2019, the "ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs" throws open its bay doors, finally giving fans a chance to step aboard.

If you thought theme parks were dying, the news earlier this year that Nintendo is teaming with Universal Parks & Resorts on its own real-world Mario wonderland might have changed your mind.
