This weekend's Star Wars Celebration in Orlando has been the gift that keeps on giving.
Not only have we had our first look at Star Wars: The Last Jedi and heard plenty of hints and teases about the film too, but now we've also been given a wealth of new information about Disney Parks' new Star Wars Land.
Disney Imagineers and LucasFilm joined forces for Saturday's Star Wars and Disney Parks: A Galaxy in the Making panel and delivered some tantalising new details about what the park will offer guests.
For one thing, it's not so much a theme park as an immersive role-playing experience set on an unidentified new frontier planet located somewhere on the Outer Rim.
"Now home to those who prefer less attention," the Disney Parks blog describes, "it has become a thriving port for smugglers, rogue traders and adventurers traveling between the frontier and uncharted space.
"It's also a convenient safe-haven for others intent on avoiding the expanding reach of the First Order."
"We're creating a place that's an extension of the Star Wars universe," Walt Disney Imagineering's Executive Creative Director Asa Kalama adds.
"Not a recreation of an experience that you might have seen on screen, but something entirely new."
During the experience, you'll have the chance to pilot the Millennium Falcon – and you best be prepared to answer to a certain Wookiee in the cantina if you crash – and visitors also have a choice to make too: will you fight alongside the Resistance or work with the evil First Order?
As if this couldn't all get any better, more concept art shows you'll get to interact with droids, swing lightsabers and really explore the brand new planet in great detail.
The Disney Imagineers have also revealed that they're upgrading the pre-existing Star Wars ride, Star Tours, to reflect events in The Last Jedi.
The new experience won't be open until 2019, so in the meantime we'll have to content ourselves with watching the trailer for The Last Jedi over and over again...
That film will be released on December 15 in the UK and US.
