Disney has revealed new details about the “Star Wars”-themed hotel coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The hotel will be “seamlessly connected” to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the 14-acre land set to open in 2019.

The luxury resort will be a fully-immersive experience. Guests will be “active citizens” and completely surrounded by the Star Wars universe. Every resort window will have a view of space.

“The journey through space will begin as you board a star ship and depart with your fellow guests on a multi-day 'Star Wars' adventure,” Disney said of the upcoming hotel.

The new details were shared during a presentation by Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek at the D23 Expo Japan.

The “Star Wars” hotel was first announced during last summer’s D23 Expo in California.

The immersive experience at the hotel will extend to Galaxy’s Edge. The new land will feature two new attractions — one that lets riders control the Millennium Falcon and one that puts riders in the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance.

An official opening date for the new hotel has not yet been announced.
