ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The Force is awakening a little early at Walt Disney World.

The Florida-based theme park resort on Friday is unveiling new Star Wars entertainment two weeks ahead of the much-anticipated release of the movie, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

Some of the Star Wars attractions opened earlier this week at the resort’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park.

Those include a courtyard filled with all-things Star Wars, a video game center, a movie theater showing abridged versions of the Star Wars movies and a motion simulator showing Star Wars locales and characters.

Later this month, visitors also will get to see a Star Wars-themed fireworks show.

Both Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California are planning Star Wars-themed lands in the near future.
