Since it snagged LucasFilm for $4.05 billion in 2012, Disney's churned out Star Wars movies, shows, toys, VR experiences and games. But in the background it's been tinkering away on something even more immersive: a full-blown Star Wars theme park. On Christmas Day, Disney dropped a new trailer for the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge theme park and two of its main attractions, "Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run" and "Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance" -- with Disney describing the latter as "the biggest and most immersive Disney Parks attraction ever."

The rides, like the new movies, offer a mix of old and new elements from the Star Wars universe. You'll be co-piloting the Millennium Falcon in one attraction and come face to face with Kylo Ren during a battle between the Resistance and First Order in the other. Aside from the hyperbole from Disney and LucasFilm execs -- "jaw-dropping," "incredibly emotional" and "epic" are all thrown about -- the clip also features snippets of John Williams' new score for the park.

Disney previously said the theme park would transport visitors to the "never before seen" Planet Batuu -- a remote outpost that once served as a trading port. Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will open its doors next summer at Disneyland in Anaheim, California and later in the fall at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
