At this point, we pretty much know what to expect from Disney’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

To that end, Disney has revealed a couple pieces of concept art for two of its Galaxy’s Edge shops at Walt Disney World – and appropriately, one is themed as a Resistance station and the other is representing the First Order.
