ANAHEIM, Calif. >> Disney CEO Bob Iger says “Star Wars” is getting its own themed land at Disney parks.

Iger announced at Disney’s D23 Fan Expo on Saturday that the 14-acre attraction will be built at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and Disneyland in Anaheim, California. It represents the largest parks expansion ever.

Iger says the “Star Wars” land will be “every bit as thrilling as the films” and will include attractions and entertainment in an area populated by aliens and droids. There will also be a Cantina and the chance to take control of the Millennium Falcon.

Disney parks have previously only had the Star Tours ride as their “Star Wars” themed attraction. More comprehensive park integration has been expected since Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012.
