Star Wars fans got an extra gift on Christmas morning when Disney revealed a new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge video during their annual holiday parade special. Don’t worry if you missed it—we’ve got the out-of-this-world sneak peek below!

Creative Executive Scott Trowbridge of Walt Disney Imagineering and Carrie Beck V.P. of  Lucasfilm narrate the two-minute video, which gives fans a look at the new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, as well as two new attractions which will be featured in the new land: the Millennium Falcon and Rise of the Resistance rides.

Hang onto your lightsabers, folks—this footage is pretty rad.

“It will be jaw-dropping and incredibly emotional to walk into the land for the first time,” said Beck. “To actually be standing there amongst the buildings, amongst the ships and have this feeling that it is all real, that it’s been brought to life and it is right there in front of you. It’s overwhelming.”

As the video highlights the experience aboard the Millennium Falcon ride will be unlike anything else. Everyone aboard the ship will get a chance to interact with the ride, helping to pilot the way through an incredible adventure.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens at Disneyland in May 2019 and at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in the Walt Disney World Resort next fall.
