Get ready to go to a galaxy far, far away. 

During a presentation at 2017's Star Wars Celebration, Disney and Star Wars unveiled plans for the new theme park set to debut at Disneyland and Disneyworld.

According to a press release from Disney, details were shared about the story behind this mysterious destination somewhere on the Outer Rim — lying on the edge of the Unknown Regions.

"The remote village was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes, but the prominence of the outpost has been bypassed with the rise of hyperspace travel. Now home to those who prefer less attention, it has become a thriving port for smugglers, rogue traders and adventurers traveling between the frontier and uncharted space. It’s also a convenient safe-haven for others intent on avoiding the expanding reach of the First Order."

Guests will be able to mingle with "unusual characters from across the galaxy." Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced last month the Star Wars-themed lands are scheduled to open in 2019.
