One of the most exciting experiences within the Disney Parks in recent years has been the addition of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland. At Disney World, Guests can head over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and experience Batuu, the fictional planet within the world of Star Wars. 

At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Guests are encouraged to live out their own Star Wars adventure while they explore Black Spire Outpost on the planet of Batuu.

Batuu is also home to Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities, Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, Savi’s Workshop, and Oga’s Cantina. Guests can also interact with Rey, Chewbacca, Vi Moradi, an exclusive character of Galaxy’s Edge, Kylo Ren, and even First Order Stormtroopers.

Most notably, the new land features two of Disney’s most impressive rides. Guests can enjoy the two attractions Black Spire Outpost offers, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.

Both of these attractions offer some of Disney’s most immersive elements, starting right as you enter the queue for both rides. While Smuggler’s Run is a great ride, few Disney attractions can compare to Rise of the Resistance.

This attraction features dozens of animatronics, grand-scale scenery, and sets as well as intense action and thrills. For those who may not have ridden the ride yet, Rise of the Resistance is a mixture of rises, landing somewhere in between Tower of Terror, Star Tours, Mickey, and Minnie’s Runaway Railway.

Since opening, the attraction has been a smash hit among Guests and the Star Wars community, that is, if you’re lucky enough to acquire a boarding group.

However, one Disney Guest recently discovered there is a creepy element on the ride that most may not notice. The video was shared on TikTok from @beaconemmie, see it below:

As you can see, the animatronic Finn that can be found in the AT-AT room of the attraction looks rather unsettling when you get a close-up. The TikTok even compares the figure to a scene from Midsommar, a horror movie release in 2019 starring Black Widow (2021) star Florence Pugh.

Luckily, Guests will likely pass by this figure quickly and not notice how scary it looks.

Disney’s description of Rise of the Resistance is as follows:

An Attraction on a Scale That Is Impressive, Most Impressive

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is a massive attraction with multiple ride systems that is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced at Walt Disney World Resort… or anywhere else in the galaxy!

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.

Prepare for a thrilling, first-of-its-kind adventure!

Have you noticed this in Rise of the Resistance?
