Disney on Thursday graced the world with a first glimpse of its coming Star Wars lands. As of now, fans can enjoy special character encounters to favourite attractions like Star Tours - The Adventures Continue, and interactive entertainment like Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple at all Disney parks and resorts around the world.
Well, all that changed last night.
Large scale models of both expansions were revealed yesterday ahead of the 2017 D23 Expo, that starts today in California. Star Wars fans will remember Mos Eisley as the location where Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first encounter Han Solo and Chewbacca in A New Hope.
For those of us who aren't able to attend D23, Disney released photos of the video and model, which only begin to capture the amount of detail the parks plan to cover.

The problem, if you haven't already figured it out, is that the lines for the Star Wars Land attractions are going to be mad long - like, hours long. "When you walk through the spaceport, what do you see?"
As The Mercury News reports, park-goers will walk through a landscape and architecture that looks similar to that featured in the Star Wars films. Which - what with all of the Stormtroopers who are now in the vicinity - is putting numerous merchants in this area on edge. Try to go on a weekday during school season - you'll find fewer locals and fewer tourists.

This is the most ambitious land we've built to date. And because now (in the Star Wars universe, anyway) basically everyone uses light speed to barrel around the galaxy, this spaceport isn't quite as popular or well-known as it once was. It's a trading port and one of the last stops before Wild Space. In one, fans will get the opportunity to pilot the Millennium Falcon on a secret mission. "Disney provided me a tutorial of how I can make my dreams come true by lifting the curtain", he said, explaining that it was Disney that set him on the path to a career in the entertainment industry.

The model debut is just the appetizer for those looking to devour any information they can about the new lands.
