The preview of the so-called Star Wars Lands during ABC’s Disneyland 60 special last night was a tad underwhelming, but it did produce a few more pieces of concept art and some scattered details. (A cantina and an upscale dinner club!) There’s a pretty low-res video of the presentation(via) and a better look at some of the art thanks to The Hollywood Reporter.

UPDATE: A yet-better look at the official Disney Parks blog.

Still no timeframe, but most Disneyland/Disney World experts seem to expect the openings are at least 4 years away.
