Walt Disney Imagineering has unveiled details about its immersive attraction, Star Wars: Rise of Resistance, located at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
Hailed as one of Walt Disney Imagineering’s most ambitious and innovative projects to date, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will combine reality with fantasy.
Visitors will board a full-sized shuttle where they will be recruited to join General Organa and Rey at a clandestine military base located in the forest. The First Order Star Destroyer will capture guests, who will witness a battle between the Resistance and the First Order.
Featuring two full-size AT-AT walkers and a Star Destroyer hanger bay with Stormtroopers and a TIE fighter, the Rise of the Resistance will be one of Disney’s biggest ever attractions.
A new simulator experience and multiple ride systems will give those who board the Rise of the Resistance the feeling they are falling from space to crash onto Batuu.
The highly awaited new Star Wars attraction will open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida on December 5, 2019 and at Disneyland in California on January 17, 2020.
