For the D23 Expo, kicking off today in Anaheim, California, Disney has unveiled a beautifully detailed model of its Star Wars-themed land, expected to open in 2019 at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
Photos of the enormous model, shared on the official Star Wars Twitter account, provide an overview of the 14-acre area, as well as details of a market (with First Order TIE Fighter), and a secluded area that, judging from the presence of A-wing and X-wing fighters, may be a Resistance base.

Announced in 2015, the Star Wars areas are the largest-ever single-themed land expansions at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim and Disney World in Orlando, Florida. A full-size replica of the Millennium Falcon is at the heart of the attraction, and guests will not only be able to pilot the iconic spaceship but serve in different roles as part of its crew. They’ll also build “reputations” during their visit, with what they do on one ride affecting their experiences on those that follow.
Each area at the two parks will feature full-sized AT-ATs, a street market, a cantina, an upscale restaurant, and an attraction that places guests in the middle of a battle between the Resistance and the First Order. It’s also been rumored there will be “Force Opportunities,” interactive features placed throughout the Star Wars land that will allow visitors to pretend to use the Force.
Expect more details to be revealed this weekend at D23 Expo.
