It’s finally TIME! Are you ready to go INSIDE the coming-soon Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance attraction in Disneyland’s and Disney World’s Galaxy’s Edge?? We’ve got a sneak peek for you…let’s GO!
This, probably the most highly anticipated new attraction coming to Galaxy’s Edge, is going to BLOW. YOUR. MIND. Even more so than originally thought.
This will be Disney’s longest attraction ever created, and is actually “four attractions in one,” reports Carlye Wisel, one of several reporters who were given a sneak peek and tour of the new attraction in Disneyland last week. “Guests will board multiple ride vehicles, encounter enemies, and walk the halls of a Star Destroyer as if they were truly a Resistance fighter taken captive.”
Sounds amazing. But what really happens? Let’s tour through Rise of the Resistance together… .
You’ll find Rise of the Resistance in a wooded area near Black Spire Outpost — a village on the planet Batuu. Here, the Resistance is hiding out in a military outpost to avoid detection by the First Order. As you enter the queue, you’ll explore gun turrets, rock tunnels, and locker rooms filled with flight suits.
The pre-show features Rey, accompanied by BB8, asking guests to embark on a mission to battle the First Order. Guests will travel with Resistance pilot Poe Dameron. Once you accept the mission, you’ll pass a giant X-Wing to board a transport ship being piloted by Nien Nunb. As the ship takes off, the guests (currently standing) can feel the floor shake.
Here’s where things get dicey. The ship is soon captured by a Star Destroyer, and guests are greeted by 50 storm troopers! First Order officers separate the guests into smaller groups that are escorted to a jail cell. Kylo Ren steps in to interrogate, and the guests-turned-prisoners have to figure out how to escape.
That’s only one-third of the ride…but you’ll have to stay tuned to see what happens next!
