The First Order is desperate to extinguish the spark of the Resistance. In the forest outside Black Spire Outpost the Resistance is recruiting for a secret mission. Your transport is captured by an imposing First Order Star Destroyer—with Kylo Ren on board—you are going to need all the help you can get. Luckily there is a covert team of Resistance fighters ready to provide you with a fighting chance to escape.

2. You may recognize some familiar faces

The attraction will bring you face-to-face with your favorite Star Wars characters, including Resistance heroes Rey, Poe and Finn, as well as Kylo Ren and General Hux of the First Order.

3. All-new technology

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance uses advanced and immersive experiences ever undertaken by Walt Disney Imagineering. It has multiple ride systems and a show building large enough to house two full-sized AT-AT walkers and a Star Destroyer hangar bay.
