Could Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance be Open Before the End of the Year?

The most technical ride ever created

One of the big reasons why we are seeing so many delays with Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is that this new E-ticket attraction will be one of the most technically advenaced ever created, with a whopping total of 305 animatronic figures and droids, almost a third of which are expected to be Stormtroopers inside its walls. 

In addition, reports indicate this attraction will have 18 different show scenes that involve 5 different ride systems, making it one of the most intricate rides at a Disney park ever. And with competition increasing from parks like Universal (which has opened the screen-free Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure to great fanfare), Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance sounds like just the attraction needed to usher in a new era of dark rides at not just Disney parks, but at theme parks around the world!

Though Disney hasn't released a lot of official information about Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, we expect that to change very soon, as opening plans are confirmed for this exciting new attraction, which will hopefully be opening on both coasts sometime this year!
