Disney Parks(NEW YORK) -- Disney has announced the opening dates for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, the new theme park attractions at both Anaheim, California's Disneyland and Orlando, Florida's Walt Disney World Resort.

The goal of the immersive, 14-acre destinations are to make visitors feel as if they're walking the streets of the fictional trading outpost planet of Batuu, alongside all the droids and aliens you'd expect in a Star Wars film.

Fans in California will get the first chance to visit that galaxy far, far away: The attraction opens in Disneyland on May 31.

In Florida, Galaxy's Edge will be located at Disney's Hollywood Studios park. It's part of the Orlando-based Walt Disney World Resort -- which also includes Disney's Magic Kingdom, Epcot Center, and Disney's Animal Kingdom -- opens August 29.

The attraction at both parks will feature rides, restaurants, and other immersive attractions from George Lucas' iconic franchise.

Disney is the parent company of ABC News.
