Coca-Cola products are getting a droid-like makeover in Disney's new "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" land.

Opening on August 29 at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando, the Black Spire Outpost in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will carry Coke products and Dasani water true to Star Wars theme, according to Disney's blog.

Guests can purchase these drinks specifically on their trip to Batuu. The bottles are inscribed with Aurebesh, the language of Star Wars.

"We knew that we wanted to create something truly special – something that will bring your own Star Wars adventure to life in a whole new way," said Scott Trowbridge, Disney Imagineering’s portfolio creative executive and studio leader. "We reached out to our friends at Coca-Cola, and along with Lucasfilm Ltd. came up with specially designed Coca-Cola bottles that are designed to fit authentically within the Star Wars universe."

The new land will be home to a ride on the Millenium Falcon, a customized lightsaber workshop and restaurants based on the Star Wars franchise.

Galaxy's Edge will be located next to Toy Story Land and right behind Pixar Place.
