On display during the comic-con for Disney enthusiasts is an extremely detailed model of the Star Wars lands that are being built in both Disneyland in California and Walt Disney World in Florida.

Videos of the display are on YouTube. Take a look:

The model is the centerpiece of the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts “A Galaxy of Stories” area of the biennial event.

The Star Wars-themed lands are scheduled to open in 2019. The idea of the lands was announced two years ago at the 2015 D23 Expo.

The model debut is just the appetizer for those looking to devour any information they can about the new lands. More information will be released during the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts presentation Saturday. The presentation is scheduled for 3 p.m.
