'Star Wars' fans who have always dreamed of piloting the Millennium Falcon and joining the Resistance will finally get the chance next year.

Disney parks made some big announcements Saturday at the annual D23 expo, including the names of the major attractions coming to Walt Disney World Resort at the future Star Wars land—as well as the music being composed for the land.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge attractions are set to open at Disneyland next summer 2019 and at Disney World's Hollywood Studios next fall.

Chairman of Disney Parks, experiences and consumer products Bob Chapek announced the names and major details about what guests will experience at the future worlds on two rides.

The first ride is called "Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run," and puts guests behind the controls of the 'Star Wars' spaceship in one of three unique flight crew roles.

"Guests can take the controls in one of three unique and critical roles aboard Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run," according to a Disney Parks spokesperson.

The second attraction, called Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, puts guests in the middle of a battle between the Resistance and the First Order – including a face-off with Kylo Ren himself, according to a post on the Disney Parks blog.

Disney shared more sneak-peak videos of inside the experiences here.

It was also revealed that famed 'Star Wars' composer John Williams is composing new music recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios for the new lands.

Disney also announced Saturday the replacement shows for Illuminations, a new night show for Hollywood Studios, a Beauty and the Beast sing along for Epcot’s country France, a new film coming to Epcot’s Canada and the name of the new 'Ratatouille' ride.
