After “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance” opens on December 5th in Disney World the Imagineers will head back to finish the ride at the original park. This ride is said to “blur the lines between fantasy and reality and will put guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance. ” It goes on go state that “guests will be recruited to join Rey and General Organa at a secret base. Along the way, they will be captured by a First Order Star Destroyer. With the help of some heroes of the Resistance, they break out and must escape the Star Destroyer, protect the secret base, and stay one step ahead of Kylo Ren.” Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance” sounds like the rush we’ve been waiting for.

Whichever coast you’ll be visiting, “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance” is sure to be an amazing new addition. Are you surprised it’ll be opening at the Galaxy’s Edge in Walt Disney World first?
