Disney Parks has released the first official photo of the Millennium Falcon, one of two major attractions that will be part of Star Wars land.

“Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” will open in the summer of 2019 at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim and at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida in the fall of 2019.

The ride called “Millennium Falcon: Smuggler Run” will take passengers on a mission to hyperspace while controlling the most famous ship in the galaxy and placing guests in three different crew roles.

The second attraction, which puts guests in the middle of an “epic battle between the Resistance and the First Order,” is called “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance,” according to Disney.

The company said it hopes the new “Star Wars” experience will make guests feel like interstellar travelers “in a galaxy far, far, away.”
