December 6, 2019 – Disney’s Hollywood Studios, part of Walt Disney World in Florida, has officially opened Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. The highly immersive attraction is the last major component, at least for now, of the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge themed area, which opened August 29, 2019.
Featuring four interworking ride systems, including a trackless dark ride, walk-through, motion simulator, and drop ride system, along with audio-animatronics, practical sets, projection mapping and screen-based media, Rise of the Resistance is one of the most complex and advanced attractions designed by Walt Disney Imagineering.
The attraction’s opening in Florida will be joined at Disneyland in California on January 17, 2020. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, which includes the popular Star Wars: Millennium Falcon – Smugglers Run, a simulator ride in which guests pilot the Millennium Falcon, first opened at Disneyland on May 31, 2019.
