We are quickly approaching the opening of one of the most innovative attractions to open at Disney Parks with Rise of the Resistance at Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge. Now thanks to a new video from our friends at DSNY Newscast, we get a nice overview of the ride layout.

This exciting new attraction will open on December 5, 2019, at Hollywood Studios in Florida and January 17, 2020, at Disneyland. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will put you in the middle of a battle between the Resistance and the First Order. Led by Resistance fighter Vi Moradi, the journey begins with you, the rider, on a mission to help the Resistance, and meet Leia Organa at a rendezvous point. However, when Kylo Ren and the First Order get involved, this mission becomes much more difficult.
This is described by Disney Parks Blog as “one of the most ambitious, advanced and immersive experiences ever undertaken by Walt Disney Imagineering.”
Back in August, TIME Magazine named the land one of their Greatest Places of 2019 to visit.
Nearly seven years after the Walt Disney Co.’s acquisition of Lucasfilm comes Disneyland’s largest-ever single land expansion—and a shift of the California theme park’s nostalgic identity toward more futuristic experiences. At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, guests don’t simply mingle with their favorite characters, they live among them while customizing their own droids at the Droid Depot (see photo) and visiting Oga’s Cantina, Disneyland’s first public watering hole serving alcoholic space brews and “blue milk.” The 14-acre land brings planet Batuu and its trading post to life, along with two groundbreaking attractions: a Millennium Falcon–themed flight simulator, open now, and the multifaceted cinematic journey of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, opening later this year.
