The force is with you, Disneyland.

On Friday, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge officially opens in Anaheim, California, and by the looks of it, fans of the sci-fi franchise have an epic new home awaiting them.

The new land features rides like Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, which takes place on a replica of the iconic spaceship, and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, which brings guests through a virtual battle between the Resistance and the First Order.

Galaxy’s Edge will also open at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, on August 29, giving even more super fans the opportunity to immerse themselves into the Star Wars culture.
