RELATED: Disney's Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Ride Debuts - and It's Super Sized in Every Way
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance debuted at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando on December 6, 2019. The ride opened at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., in January 2020 but was operating for only two months before theme parks were forced to shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Produced by Disney Parks in partnership with the creative team at Lucasfilm, the vast attraction brings the action from the newest Star Wars trilogy to life in whopping scale. Towering AT-AT walkers, Poe Dameron's original X-wing Starfighter and multi-story ship decks all add to the galactic experience. (At 165,000 sq. ft., the attraction is two-thirds bigger than the average Costco.)
Beyond the physical footprint, the ambitious attraction - which boasts four ride systems in one - has a Jabba the Hut-sized running time.
"We crafted a very long experience," executive producer Jon Georges said in a press release. "We wanted to immerse guests in the world of this battle between the First Order and the Resistance. It's a 15-minute, fully immersive experience, so it's a long-play attraction for us."
