During an earnings call with investors on Tuesday, Disney CEO and chairman Bob Iger announced that Star Wars Land will open at both Disneyland and Disney World in 2019.

According to Disney, the 14-acre Star Wars Land attraction at Walt Disney World in Orlando will feature a couple of "signature attractions," including the ability to pilot Han Solo's storied Millennium Falcon and an "epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle."

Iger also revealed in the call that the Avatar attraction will open on May 27, and that he's already seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a film he thinks people will enjoy.
