Calling all Resistance fighters to Batuu!
Will you be joining the fight for the Resistance – or will you side with the First Order? Those are the paths you can choose with the NEW Rise of the Resistance jobs that will become available on the Disney Play app starting December 5, 2019 in Disney World! Coinciding with the opening of the Rise of the Resistance ride in Hollywood Studios (coming “tomorrowwww, tomorrowwww!!”), this new addition will be coming to the Star Wars: Datapad on the Disney Play app, and we are SO excited to see what it entails!
First off, you’ll need to choose a side! To do this, when you open the app, look out for the new Star Destroyer icon in your Datapad! According to Disney, if you choose to help the Resistance “you’ll receive a distress signal from Finn, who is undercover on a Star Destroyer near Batuu.” From there, you can help him navigate the Star Destroyer by controlling his path. What happens next will depend on the route you navigate for Finn! But, along the way, chances are high that you may get to reprogram droids, or even gather information on what the First Order is doing.
Would you rather choose the First Order (hey, no judgment here!). In that case, you’ll be “tasked with surveilling and reporting back on the status of Resistance supplies.” The job will give you the opportunity to message with a First Order officer, and you’ll follow her instructions to scan crates or intercept transmissions throughout Batuu.
While this new addition to the Star Wars: Datapad will be launching December 5th to Disney World, it will not debut in Disneyland until January 17th, so it will coincide with the opening of Rise of the Resistance on the West Coast! Now, please excuse us while we count down the MINUTES ’til the opening of Rise of the Resistance in Disney World!
And guess what, we had the opportunity to ride Rise of the Resistance TODAY!
