Disney Has Released a Bunch of Images From ‘Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance’


Good news for those of you wanting to get a look at the upcoming Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance attraction!  D23 has posted a bunch of images from the various scenes in the ride!

The ride synopsis is that guests join the Resistance and are sent to rendezvous with General Leia Organa. But on their way they are intercepted by Kylo Ren and the First Order. Their transport is tractor beamed into the Star Destroyer hangar bay and they must escape and return to the planet’s surface.

Here are the images that D23 shared and even I have to admit, they are pretty awesome! Let’s take a look!

Outside you can see Poe Dameron’s X-wing “Black One” along with an Intersystem Transport ship.

The Intersystem Transport ship is what you will board at the start of the attraction.

One thing I really do love about this attraction is that Disney has a mix of animatronic or static characters with real actors. It’s refreshing!

Imperial droid R5-J2 escorts you through the ship and to your escape.

As you escape and return to the planet you can watch the space battle unfold outside your window.

For me, I’m most looking forward to the AT-ATs. If anything could win me over for this new area, this attraction could. I really can’t wait to see it!

There has been a lot of chatter about the ride system breaking down, but it is a complicated ride system and I would be really surprised if it didn’t break down. Hopefully the can get it all going smoothly from here on out.  Only time will tell.

What do you think? Comment and let us know!
