Disney's latest reveal comes from a galaxy far, far away.

The company shared a preview Thursday night of a detailed model of Star Wars land at the D23 Expo in Anaheim.

The model gives a closer look at what the "immersive world" will look like once it opens in Walt Disney World at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disneyland.

The iconic Millennium Falcon is prominently featured. Guests will have a chance to "take the controls" of the spacecraft as part of a new attraction. The other attraction puts guests in the middle of a "battle between the First Order and the Resistance."

Buildings, sandy and rocky landscapes, and transport vehicles can also be seen in the model.

The model will be on display on the D23 Expo showroom floor all weekend.

Star Wars land is scheduled to open in 2019 at both resorts, but an official date has not been announced.
