Parker Anderson and his family are the definition of Star Wars superfans. His love of Star Wars has helped during tough times, especially while he struggled with diabetes and a tumor-growing syndrome. His dad even recalled that when Parker was dealing with pain, they’d encourage him by telling him to “use the Force” to overcome it.

Watch Parker’s unwavering optimism as he and his family join the cause at Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, which launches Jan. 17 at Disneyland park!

The newest attraction inside Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, is one of the most ambitious, advanced and immersive experiences ever undertaken by Walt Disney Imagineering. You’ll climb aboard a full-size transport shuttle before being captured by a Star Destroyer and find yourself in the middle of a climactic battle between the dark side of the First Order and the light side of the Resistance. The harrowing adventure blurs the lines between fantasy and reality on a scale never seen before in a Disney attraction.
