Opening date set for Rise of the Resistance at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort

Jul 11, 2019 in "Star Wars Galaxy's Edge"

Disney has today announced that Rise of the Resistance will open at Walt Disney World on December 5 2019 in Star Wars Galaxy's Edge.

Despite the Disneyland Star Wars Galaxy's Edge opening earlier than the Disney's Hollywood Studios version, Rise of the Resistance will not open at Disneyland until January 17 2020.

According to Disney, "When it opens, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will blur the lines between fantasy and reality and will put guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Guests will be recruited to join Rey and General Organa at a secret base. Along the way, they will be captured by a First Order Star Destroyer. With the help of some heroes of the Resistance, they break out and must escape the Star Destroyer, protect the secret base, and stay one step ahead of Kylo Ren."

Star Wars Galaxy's Edge at Walt Disney World will officially open to guests on August 29 2019.

Well I don't claim to be a expert but I'm pretty sure that's a still picture... but if you want to call it a wall or screen that's fine by me! ;)

Hey, let's restart the argument whether that's a "wall" or "screen" leaving it achingly ambiguous what our definition of "screen" is!!

Here’s an interesting POV. The AT-AT room was totally busted. The blasters and light effects were on an endless loop, meaning they didn’t reset after the previous RVs pass through. The sound effects of the blasters can be heard throughout the entire duration. There also was no “Detention block breached. Prisoners last scene on level D....There they are, fire!!” and the stormtroopers (the screens) were mia. And after the RVs of the cammer left the room, the blasters can still be heard on loop.

yes...after unload, getting ready to head into the Disco Room to exchange with other cars.

I'm pretty sure this is after unload where the ride vehicles enters the tunnel backwards. You can see the RVs oriented backwards in the far back of the picture and they orient forwards as they proceed towards the disco room. The previous picture posted is the opposite view. The R5 with the red coloring is the same one in both pictures.

Where in the ride is this?

Behind the Scenes - "Rise of the Resistance" - you can see several ride vehicles lined up here.

The wall decor is angled, the floor is not.

Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but are the ride vehicles on a slope here or is it just an illusion with the camera angle? I thought I remember users saying LPS vehicles don't handle slopes well...
