Star Wars might take place "in a galaxy far far away", but at least some if it is going to come a bit closer to home - in spectacular fashion.

If you a person who likes visiting amusement parks, particularly ones on the other side of the world, who also has a minor/major/debilitating obsession with 'Star Wars', we might just have something that neatly intersects your two very particular interests.

Ahead of D23 Expo 2017, Disney has provided an early look at the model of its upcoming Star Wars-themed lands coming to Walt Disney World and Disneyland.

Disney unveiled a physical 3D model of the eagerly awaited Star Wars Land at D23 Expo - their three-day fan convention in Anaheim, CA - on Thursday. So far, Disney is referring to the new attraction as a "Star Wars-Themed Land", but fans have shortened that to "Star Wars Land" following the park's previous areas such as "Tomorrowland" and "Adventureland".

"This is the most ambitious land we've built to date", Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, said.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will finally allow both Rey and audiences to spend some quality time with Luke Skywalker after the character made a brief appearance at the end of The Force Awakens.

Or perhaps it'll feature in Episode 9, the climax to the third trilogy, expected to arrive in 2019, the same year the attraction opens.

In addition, the pavilion will display models, artwork and media that provide a first-ever look at some of the locations, starships, creatures, and droids that guests will encounter when they visit this new planet.

Depending on where visitors enter, they will either be greeted by First Order troops or members of the Resistance.
