Disney continues to take full advantage of its 2012 purchase of Lucasfilm and the "Star Wars" franchise.
Two new "Star Wars"-themed areas, one at Disneyland and the other at Walt Disney World Resort, will open next year, Disney announced May 22.
"Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" will first open in Anaheim, California, during the summer of 2019 and then at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida, in late fall 2019.
The additions will be Disney's biggest "single-themed land expansion" ever, according to Disney CEO Bob Iger. Each will be an expansive 14 acres.
A replica of the Millennium Falcon spaceship, which guests will be able to pilot, will be a key attraction.
Set on the planet Batuu, "Galaxy's Edge" will provide a fully immersive experience for guests. Rather than interact with Disney employees, guests will interact with Batuu's residents: a collection of smugglers, bounty hunters and rogue adventurers. Fly the Millennium Falcon well, and you can expect congratulations from a passerby.
Unique specialty items will be on sale in Batuu's street markets rather than Disney's usual theme park merchandise.
Disney purchased Lucasfilm Ltd. in 2012 for $4.05 billion. That blockbuster deal has proven to be quite the bargain. Since then, Disney has made that money back through its "Star Wars" films alone.
