Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is an upcoming attraction at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland and Disney's Hollywood Studios. The attraction will put guests into the middle of the battle between the First Order (Including First Order Stormtroopers) and the Resistance, and feature an eight-seated ride vehicle known as a First Order Fleet Transport.

Summary[edit]

At one point guests will appear to be inside a Star Destroyer hangar bay. The ride will partly involve a rescue that doesn't go as planned, with a hijacked First Order Fleet Transport being part of the rescue.[2] The attraction will feature appearances by BB-8, Rey, Nien Nunb, Poe Dameron, Finn, and Kylo Ren.[3]

Development/History[edit]

Announced alongside the land’s official announcement at the 2015 D23 Expo in Anaheim, the attraction was originally described as guests “being placed in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance”.

On November 17, 2018 at a Destination D event, the attraction's name was announced as Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

The attraction was originally planned to open with Galaxy's Edge on opening day, but on March 7, 2019, it was announced that it would open later than the rest of Galaxy's Edge for "phase two".[4]

On July 11, 2019, the opening dates for Rise of the Resistance were revealed with the Hollywood Studios version opening first on December 5, 2019, followed by Disneyland's version opening on January 17, 2020.[5]
