Plans for the "jaw-dropping new world" were revealed Saturday by Bob Iger, chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Co., at D23 Expo 2015 in Anaheim.

At 14 acres each, the additions to the Disney parks in Anaheim and Orlando, Florida, represent "our largest single-themed land expansion ever," said Iger, speaking before some 7,500 "Star Wars" fans at the biennial convention.

He added that the new environments "will transport guests to a whole new 'Star Wars' planet, including an (attraction) that puts you in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance."

The areas will also feature an attraction that allows visitors to "take the controls of one of the most recognizable ships in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon, on a customized secret mission," according to a statement from Disney.

The company released artist's renderings of the fictional planet, described as a remote trading port.
