It might be a long time (hopefully not!) until Disney's Star Wars Land is finally open, but at least it won't be in a galaxy far, far away.On Thursday, Disney finally broke ground on the forthcoming attractions at both Disneyland and Florida's Walt Disney World. While there isn't much to see, yet, Disney offered a 360 peek at the 14-acre site. The panoramic view shows the construction crew got some help from some of the Star Wars franchise's iconic characters and vehicles (i.e. they were Photoshopped into the image).

To make room, parts of Frontierland have closed—some of them permanently.

If you're curious what that expanse of dirt will look like, here's some artists' renderings of the attraction—or if you prefer, let Harrison Ford take you on a tour.
