Accept a Mission from the Resistance
The Resistance needs your help! Hidden in the forest outside Black Spire Outpost, the Resistance is gathering recruits for a secret mission.
With the First Order desperate to extinguish the spark of the Resistance, the mission is bound to have unexpected twists and turns. When your transport is captured by an imposing First Order Star Destroyer filled with legions of stormtroopers—and even Kylo Ren!—you’re going to need all the help you can get. Fortunately, a covert team of Resistance fighters—including Rey and BB-8—is at the ready to give you a fighting chance to escape… and a chance for the Resistance to rise.
Get ready for a thrilling, first-of-its-kind adventure when Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opens on December 5, 2019.
May the force be with us as we patiently await to experience this galactic adventure. To hold us over, we can tune in to this Livestream of the attraction dedication ceremony!
