As we’ve previously shared, the highly anticipated attraction Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will open on Dec. 5, 2019 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida and Jan. 17, 2020 at Disneyland park in California.

When it opens, this harrowing adventure will blur the lines between fantasy and reality and will put you in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance. You will join the Resistance and depart from Batuu in a transport ship to meet General Leia Organa at a secret rendezvous point. Along the way, however, you will be captured by a First Order Star Destroyer. The action then ramps up as you seek to escape the clutches of Kylo Ren and the First Order – with the help of some heroes of the Resistance. Today, we’re excited to share this first look inside the attraction!

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will be one of the most ambitious, advanced and immersive experiences ever undertaken by Walt Disney Imagineering. The attraction is also one of the largest Disney has ever created. Its massive show building is a world unto itself, housing two full-size AT-AT walkers and a Star Destroyer hangar bay – complete with a TIE fighter and a garrison of Stormtroopers – plus more thrills and surprises.

Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for more updates on Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. 


  • Hopefully Disneyland APs will get a preview time, like Disney World APs had for the Millenium Falcon.

  • I can not wait! I have flown the Falcon over 80 times. I love GE. The environment, the residents of Batuu make this one of the great lands of Disney. I hope they have a special event for Rise’s opening.

  • Hope Silver AP holders can get an invite to the next preview since we were blocked out from this last one. Regardless, can’t wait to have a childhood dream of a Star Wars area come to life!!!!

  • Omg this looks amazing!!! I cant wait to experience this! We don’t need original star wars characters to make this an amazing attraction!!

  • Sorry to say this but I took my children to the star wars park and they pointed out that there wasn’t any of their favorite characters and noticed there wasn’t really anything from the original star wars.

  • will Annual Passholders will have a preview night?? 🙂

  • Is this the look inside? Is this a photo from inside the attraction?
