It’s so close you can hear Vader’s labored breathing. That’s right. I’m talking about Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The new section of themepark is opening at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, this summer. The world of Star Wars and Disney fans have been collectively losing their last shreds of patience (myself included) to just know something, anything, about the new parks.

Thankfully, Disney heard us. They recently released brand new images and video of the new areas of the park. And let me tell you: It. Is. AMAZING.

The new material shows us what to expect from the moment you walk in, without giving away so much that it loses the mystique. In a new video, Scott Trowbridge of Walt Disney Imagineering and Carrie Beck of Lucasfilm Story Group talk us through some of the key attractions, including Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run and Rise of the Resistance.

Additionally, there’s also the Journey to Batuu and Black Spire Outpost, which are immersive destinations in Galaxy’s Edge. To make it all even more interesting and exciting, Disneyland Cast Members will walk around the park dressed as local inhabitants of the land. It all sounds too good to be true, but somehow, it’s actually happening. If you can’t tell, I’m giddy.

So, without further ado, take a look at all the photos below that give us a glimpse of what magic lies in store at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
