When the new park sections open, visitors will be able to step into a re-creation of the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon and feel like they are flying the famous spaceship piloted by Han Solo in the films. The land is opening in phases so that guests can sooner enjoy the unique, out-of-this-world experiences that will only be found at Star Wars: "Galaxy's Edge".

The 14-acre land at Disney's Hollywood Studios is designed as a settlement on a remote planet named Batuu, with full-scale X-wing and A-wing starfighters parked among the bazaar stalls. However, the caveat here is that only one attraction, Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run will be open when this highly-anticipated new land debuts, with Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance confirmed to be opening at a later date at both parks.

The news was revealed in a Disney earnings call by company CEO Bob Iger, but a commercial offering fresh glimpses of the heavily-themed areas was released, confirming the opening dates. The land will not be included in Extra Magic Hour or Magic Morning at Disneyland.

You won't have to wait long for the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

This rendering released by Disney and Lucasfilm shows people on the planned Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance attraction, part of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. Information on how to make a reservation will be available on the Disneyland.com site or on the Disney Parks blog. In it, fans will experience a battle with the First Order. But the company warned that it expects demand to be high and that Hollywood Studios will stop admitting visitors any time it reaches capacity.

To make sure things stay orderly, ticket-holders will be required to make a no-cost reservation for Galaxy's Edge to gain admittance between May 31 and June 23.
