Disney has previously revealed that one of the entry points to the new section of the park will be along Big Thunder Trail in Frontierland, and the company also has plans to add an "Avatar" land to its theme parks.

The Star Wars lands are expected to cost about $1 billion each. The first detailed model of these projects is being displayed at the 2017 D23 Expo this weekend, run by D23, the official Disney Fan Club, in Anaheim, Calif. "And your role inside of that will be defined by how you choose", Scott Mallwitz, ‎executive creative director at Walt Disney Imagineering, told The Orange County Register. The Disney Parks blog post says that they're the "signature attractions", but, say, Tomorrowland at Disneyland has more than two rides. In one, guests will be able to take control of the Millennium Falcon and go on a "customized secret mission".

Other features will include a restaurant similar to the Mos Eisley Cantina, while visitors will be recruited for the Resistance or the First Order as they move through the land. Though it's just a glimpse at a model, it's still a really really cool model.

At the moment, there's no real world progress that Disney is willing to share.

"Well, according to Mark Hamill, it's probably not the most interesting of ideas, with the actor telling Fandango that: "[Han] had a more colourful life prior to Star Wars than I did. "When you walk through the spaceport, what do you see?" What does that street feel like? From special character encounters to fan-favorite attractions like Star Tours - The Adventures Continue, and interactive entertainment like Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple, guests of all ages can experience Star Wars stories at Disney parks and resorts around the world.
