Get ready, R2-D2’s and Darth Vader’s.

During a recent earnings call, Walt Disney Co. CEO Bob Igor hinted at big plans for an expansion of ‘Star Wars’ at Disney Parks. He referred to the changes as “significant,” according to multiple reports, sharing they’ll be announced in 2015.

Finance Chief and Senior Executive Vice President, Jay Rasulo, also mentioned attractions based on major franchises attract guests. “”They pull people from, ‘Gee, I’m gonna go someday’ to ‘I’m gonna go this year,'” Rasulo said, as reported by the Los Angeles Times.

Currently, several Disney Parks feature one Star Wars attraction; Disney’s Hollywood Studios also offers Star Wars Weekends.
