A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….

If you’re a Star Wars fan, those words probably give you the best kind of chills (and we know you’re hearing the Star Wars theme song in your head right now)!

If every Star Wars movie you’ve ever seen has made you wish you could join the Resistance for yourself, the Rise of the Resistance attraction at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will bring you closer than you ever thought possible.

Whether you’ve gotten lucky enough to be part of a Rise of the Resistance boarding group yet or not, this Disney Magic Moments video will allow you to experience the thrill of a rebellion mission (and an epic escape from a star destroyer!) for yourself.

This virtual ride through of one of the most popular attractions at both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort will have you on the edge of your seat the entire time you’re watching. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance offers all sorts of twists and turns (literally and figuratively) that will have your adrenaline pumping from the moment you step into the queue.

The Disney Parks team went the extra mile in this particular ride along video, offering RotR facts throughout the glimpse into the attraction. You’ll see the now-famous stormtrooper room and learn about the timeline of the ride, which takes place just after the events of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

You’ll also discover fun facts about Rise of the Resistance, including the fact that, at 165,000 square feet, it’s multiple ride systems comprise one of the largest Disney Parks attractions in history!
