Disney Offers Sneak Peek Into STAR WARS: RISE OF THE RESISTANCE Attraction Opening In Hollywood Studios

Disney offers a glimpse into the new Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance attraction opening this week in Disney World's Hollywood Studios. It looks to be one of the most technically complex attractions ever.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, the second planned attraction for the Galaxy's Edge, finally opens this week in Walt Disney World's Hollywood Studios. As part of the "Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration" on ABC, Disney shared a glimpse into the attraction ahead of its grand opening on Thursday.

The sneak peek video highlights various segments from the attraction which "invites you to be a recruit of the resistance to stand up against the First Order."

The adventure begins with guests boarding a space craft to rendezvous with the resistance, only to be captured by the First Order. From there, we see glimpses of a massive hangar bay — seen previously in concept art — which houses over 50 stormtroopers, a docked TIE fighter, and other surprises. It looks like this portion is a walk-through but guests do eventually board an eight-passenger First Order Fleet Transport to make their big escape.

These trackless vehicles transport riders through various action-packed scenes where they come face-to-face stormtroopers, X-Wings, TIE fighters, laser cannons, droids, and even Kylo Ren.



As explained by Theme Park Insider:

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance comprises four ride systems: the IT-S transport, the trackless First Order Fleet Transports, a motion base that the transport vehicle drives onto as it enters the escape pod, and a drop shaft that creates the effect of dropping from the Star Destroyer. The last three ride systems all work together, as you remain seated within the transport vehicle during each of those sequences.


Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance looks like one of the most technically complex attractions Disney has ever developed. It opens in Walt Disney World's Hollywood Studios on Thursday, December 5 and in Disneyland on Friday, January 17.

It joins Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run — an interactive simulation — as the second attraction in Galaxy's Edge.
