I tried a test version of the Millennium Falcon ride as part of reporting. Built in a CA warehouse. I must say, pretty amazing. You're in the cockpit with only a few others. But they will have enough pods to handle 1,800 people/hour. https://t.co/sZqTbu9n7b— Brooks Barnes (@brooksbarnesNYT) November 16, 2018
Today at the Destination D event Chairman of Disney Parks and Resorts Bob Chapek just announced new details surrounding Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Chapek revealed that the two attractions would be named Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. On the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run guests will be assigned a specific role in piloting the iconic starship. On Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance guests will be thrown into a battle between the First Order and the Resistance (including Kylo Ren!) Disney also released a teaser of the attraction, which can be seen below: A sneak peek of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance was also released. The video seen below is actual video shot in the attraction! Disney will be integrating the use of the Play Disney Parks app with the two attractions to keep guests busy while they wait in line. It was also announced that the iconic composer John Williams will be creating new and original music exclusively for the land! A quick preview of the music was shared and can be heard in the video below. This is a developing story if more details are released we will update this story immediately.
