Walt Disney World and Disneyland will both break ground on their new Star Wars lands next month.

The news was announced Thursday at the Walt Disney Co.’s annual shareholder meeting.

At Disney World, many attractions have already closed at Disney’s Hollywood Studios to make way for the 14-acre Star Wars land.

At Disney World and Disneyland, each land will include an attraction that will put visitors into a battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Another attraction will place guests behind the controls of the Millennium Falcon.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios has brought in some other Star Wars features and entertainment in the meantime. That will include “Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away” stage show debuting in April. A new Star Wars-themed fireworks attraction has also been added. And it has also added Star Wars Launch Bay, which has movie memorabilia and props; a short film that looks at the franchise’s history and future; and meet-and-greet opportunities with characters. The Jedi Training Academy has also received an update.
