Harrison Ford gives first look at Star Wars Land during ABC special

Plus, an appearance from BB-8

During a tribute to the world of Disney theme parks on ABC last night, Disney took a few minutes to introduce audiences to its upcoming Star Wars Land.

And what better way to do it than have Star Wars icon Harrison Ford and the adorable Force Awakens droid BB-8 show it off?

Ford took the stage in Hollywood last night to talk about the upcoming theme park addition — that would be open to visitors of both Disney World in Orlando, Florida and Disneyland in Anaheim, California — and talked about how excited he was people would be able to finally explore a new side of Star Wars outside of cinemas and Blu-ray boxes.

The special showed off some of the concept art for what the theme park addition will have, including a virtual reality experience that will give riders the chance to take control of the famous Millennium Falcon during an intense dogfight with the First Order.

You can watch the entire presentation in the video above. Disney hasn't released an official, hi-res version of the event, but Polygon will update the story when that becomes available.

Star Wars Land is scheduled to open in 2017.

Why doesn't anyone remember the jedi in The Force Awakens?
