Star Wars Land will bring guests to a new planet to the “Star Wars” universe, which Disney describes as “a remote trading port and one of the last stops before Wild Space.”
There, two signature attractions will await guests. One will let guests take control of the famed Millennium Falcon on a “customized” secret mission while the other puts guests squarely in the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance on an abandoned Rebel base.
