LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - It appears that The Empire will soon be invading Walt Disney World's under-construction Star Wars Land.

Disney released construction photos showing the framework for the infamous AT-AT Walkers that made their first appearance in The Empire Strikes Back.

The new Star Wars Land at Walt Disney World is scheduled to open at Disney's Hollywood Studios in 2019.

According to Disney, the new land will allow guests to transport themselves to a never-before-seen planet where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life.

The 14-acre Star Wars Land will include attractions that will let visitors take the controls of the Millennium Falcon and put them in the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance.
