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

Ahead of this weekend's likely onslaught of announcements at D23, Disney made a decision to bless us with a detailed look their new Star Wars lands, coming to both Disneyland and Disney World. The never-before seen planet where it's set will feature both a Resistance base and a detachment of the First Order.

The much-anticipated Disney's Star Wars-themed lands may not open until 2019, but a sneak peek has been unveiled.

The Walt Disney Company revealed a physical 3D model of the upcoming Star Wars Land at D23 Expo - Disney's three-day fan convention in Anaheim, CA - on Thursday. We know vaguely what its two attractions have in store.

More sneak peeks of Marvel's upcoming movies are revealed at D23 Expo, which is now happening in Anaheim, California. According to Bloomberg, the new Star Wars lands will cost about $1 billion each. For now, take a look at the massive land coming to both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Another ride puts guests in the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance. "I mean, even the way you choose enter this part of the park will have an impact on your adventure".

So guests will actually get to pilot the Millennium Falcon, which has been a fantasy at some point for every Star Wars fan. "When you walk through the spaceport, what do you see?" The lands are scheduled to open to the public in 2019.

Following the live-action films panel at D23, the first wave of Star Wars: The Last Jedi character posters have made their way online. Scott Mallwitz, executive creative director at Walt Disney Imagineering, explains "as you move through the areas, you might be recruited to join one side or the other".
