Star Wars fans will be able to take the controls of the Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission and can experience the battle between First Order and the Resistance.

As Disney's D23 Expo kicked off Thursday afternoon in Anaheim, Calif., Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek had a special surprise for theme park lovers. Plans for Star Wars lands were announced two years ago and promised "total immersion" that would see guests walk around and interact with random characters. This model is based on a never-before-seen planet. And for those counting, this is the largest single-themed land expansion for both parks. The unveiling came at the D23 expo, now being held in Anaheim, California, where the models are on display through the weekend. Also on display: models, artwork and media that provide a first look at some of the locations, starships, creature, and droids of the future space.
