Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance has opened at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida.

The ride, located in the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge area of the park, opened today (5 December) after being previewed at a special dedication ceremony last night (4 December).

Speaking at the ceremony, Disney parks chair Bob Chapek said that the new attraction "sets a new standard" for what a theme park experience can be".

"Tonight, we're welcoming the world to experience the Star Wars galaxy like never before, with the opening of the most ambitious, immersive, advanced, action-packed attraction we've ever created," he said.

A trackless dark ride and motion simulator, Rise of the Resistance is billed as one of 'the most ambitious attractions ever created for a Disney Park'. It features a heavily-themed, immersive queue line that brings riders face-to-face with Rey, BB8 and Kylo Ren before the ride has even begun, as well as a virtual queuing system that holds guests' place inline without them actually having to queue.

After boarding an eight-seater trackless vehicle guided by an R5 droid, guests find themselves trapped on a First Order ship, at the centre of an epic battle between The Resistance and the First Order. To escape riders must travel through a series of elaborately designed sets, encountering druids, stormtroopers and Kylo Ren as they make their way through the ride.

Speaking on an IAAPA Legends panel in November, Scott Trowbridge, portfolio creative executive at Disney Imagineering and creative lead on Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, said: "This is the evolution of the themed experience. There are so many great ways to get immersed in stories today. One of the unique things we, as an industry, have is we can take you there, right into those stories."
