Disney unveils 3-D model of planned "Star Wars" lands

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (WDRB) -- Disney is ready to take fans to a galaxy far, far away. 

They are revealing a model of the planned "Star Wars" land at the company's 2017 D23 Expo this weekend.  The attraction is under construction at both Disneyland in California and at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida.  

A Disney blog on about their fan convention says the attractions will "take guests to a never-before-seen planet that is a remote trading port and one of the last stops before Wild Space."  The model shows details including a forest filled with rebels and a metal-domed cantina.

The "Star Wars" lands will include two signature attractions. The first will let you take the controls of the Millennium Falcon. The second will put you in the middle of a fight between the First Order and the Resistance.

So far, there is no official name for the attractions, which Bloomberg News says each cost roughly $1 billion.  But Disney says both will open in 2019.
