In just a few days, one of the most highly anticipated Disney theme park attractions will be opening up at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Walt Disney World. Rise of the Resistance is on the way to Galaxy’s Edge!
We have been covering this attraction on the website for quite some time. Over the Thanksgiving holiday, Disney released a B-roll preview of the attraction. This ride footage was released during the Disney Holiday special, which debuted on the ABC Channel.
Rise of the Resistance will be the largest and most sophisticated attraction that Disney has ever created. The expansion for Galaxy’s Edge has even “more plans” after Rise of the Resistance opens. This expansion was confirmed by Margaret Kerrison, Managing Story Editor for Galaxy’s Edge during the IAAPA Expo of 2019.
As a reminder, this attraction is considered officially canon. This ride story will be set shortly after the Battle of Crait shown in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The entirety of this world expansion is also considered canon as well.
Check out the the B-roll preview footage below. This is provided by Disney themselves. Stay tuned as we wait for more from the opening of Rise of the Resistance!
Disneyland Resort’s Rise of the Resistance will officially open on January 17th, 2020. This is one month after Walt Disney World will receive their iteration of the Star Wars attraction.
Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker officially hits theaters on December 20th, 2019. Tickets are on sale now.
