If you were watching The Wonderful World of Disney Magic Holiday Special that was filmed at both Disney World and Disneyland Resort earlier this month, you got an early Christmas present — a special look INSIDE Disney’s newest headliner attraction, Rise of the Resistance!
But in case you were dozing (or too stuffed with turkey to remember!), we’ve got all the of the info AND PHOTOS for you RIGHT HERE!
According to Disney, Rise of the Resistance is “The most epic attraction they’ve ever built.” Yup, we kinda already figured that from all the details we’ve previously reported to you! But after watching last night’s special, we now have a better idea of what they’re talking about! In the preview, we got to see even MORE from inside the attraction — including part of the queue! Check out this glowy-looking imagineering…
…and a chunk of the pre-show featuring droid boy, BB-8! He’s so dreamy!
In the trailer, Disney says, “This attraction invites you to be a recruit of the Resistance — to stand up against the First Order.” OK, that much we knew.
But the trailer goes on to give a few extra details about the ride itself: “The first thing we’re going to do is we’re going to get into a spaceship that’s going to take off from this planet to go rendezvous with the rest of the Resistance.” Check out the transporters you’ll be loaded onto, where your adventure begins!
Once inside, we saw a few new faces of the rumored 300+ animatronics.
And of course, a BUNCH of Stormtroopers. These guys are on the Star Destroyer where the First Order takes us when we’re inevitably captured!
But then it’s time to make an action-packed escape! Led by our droid guide, we’ll be darting through the First Order’s ship encountering all manner of foe!
We’ll be battling X-Wing Starfighters…
… and massive laser cannons!
And if that doesn’t get your heart racing, they’ll also be lightsabers, droids…
and an unpleasant encounter with even Kylo Ren himself! Yikes!
With a little luck (and the Force on our side!) Disney says we’ll be celebrated as heroes of the Resistance — if we make it back in one piece!
Are YOU ready to ride Rise of the Resistance when it opens December 5th in Disney World (that’s NEXT WEEK y’all) and on January 17th in Disneyland?? We are…and we WILL! Stay tuned for our review!
