Disney has unveiled the first image of what it hopes its new Star Wars-themed land will look like.
A blog on the Disney Parks website showed fans a little of what they can expect from the new world at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, and at Walt Disney Resort in Orlando, Florida, with the artist's impression picture.
It said: "Nestled between towering spires of rock, this thriving port contains a seemingly familiar architecture of markets, landing zones and buildings.
"Look closely and you may find hints of some of the thrilling experiences that are coming - like the Millennium Falcon peeking out of one of the cargo bays, marking the location where guests will get the opportunity to pilot the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy."
Disney's chief executive Bob Iger introduced the themed lands at an expo last August.
"We are creating a jaw-dropping new world that represents our largest single-themed land expansion ever," Mr Iger said.
"These new lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will transport guests to a whole new 'Star Wars' planet."
The park will be built on the 14-acre site which was once Big Thunder Central in Frontierland in Anaheim.
It is not known when the lands will open but Star Wars: Episode VIII is due to hit cinemas in December 2017 with the Han Solo film set for release in 2018.
