Here, guests will find themselves in the middle of the action at two signature attractions: one that lets guests take the controls of Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Lightspeed to <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/D23Expo?src=hash">#D23Expo</a>!
