The resort's opening date was not announced.

Breaking down the synopsis, it appears evident that The Last Jedi will center around Luke Skywalker's (Mark Hamill) legacy, or might even focus on his passing of the torch to fellow Force-sensitive fighter Rey (Daisy Ridley).

The Mouse House used the 2017 convention to show off a number of its upcoming movies and attractions, including: our best look yet at Star Wars Land (which we now know is Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge); some major Avengers: Infinity War details and footage (for those in the room); and news on everything from the live-action Aladdin and Lion King remakes to Toy Story 4 and The Incredibles 2.

"Both 'Star Wars'-inspired lands will transport guests to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port, and one of the last stops before Wild Space, where 'Star Wars' characters and their stories come to life", Disney said in a blog post about the expansion.

"It's unlike anything that exists today", Chapek said during the presentation. Will you be joining the waiting list to become a cast member in your very own Star Wars feature?

If anyone can do the Star Wars empire justice, it's Disney.

Disney has confirmed that all employees of the hotel will be in costume and character at all times. Would every year be overload and diminish the effect of the announcements?

According to Chapek, this revolutionary new vacation experience will be a living adventure that allows guests to immerse themselves in an entirely new form of Disney storytelling.

Han Solo's beloved Millennium Falcon is still 'the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy' and one of the most iconic ships in cinematic history.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will first open at Disneyland, followed shortly by a second, identical location at Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World by 2019.
