    I solemnly swear I didn't know the name of the attractions. ;)

    I actually like both of these names, but this one I do like more. And from the promo video and photo's, the attention to detail is amazing.

    That said, man does it make me laugh that we are essentially prisoners of the First Order; which makes me wonder if Kylo will have a rage fit of us leaving our cell. :tease:

    The middle ground between light and shadow...
    Kind of a wimpy name (how does "rise" convey excitement, exactly?), but the set design looks fabulous... if some of that is actually from the ride.

    Since the ride is in a time after Episode IX, does this mean the First Order prevails? A complete spoiling of the Saga?

    I mean, wasn't rumors of the attractions pegging Batuu in-between 8 and 9?

    I thought it was after IX, since it will exist mostly after IX.

    Before would be much better, although that may be a large swath of time, with the rumors of a time jump between VIII and IX.

    Since Kyle destroyed his helmet, any main character besides Chewie will be tough to pull off well. Assuming we don't have some god awful glow head Rey and Finn.

    Apparently the whole video was filmed inside the ride.

    That would make sense, and if it is; it'd have to be Anaheim's version at this point.

    WARNING: SCREENZ!!!!

    I hope the RVs have some serious motion. Like Transformers level motion. Which most trackless rides do NOT have. Otherwise this could end up being an elaborate snoozefest.

    Kong has a lot of motion.

    But I suspect this to be Spider-man light.

    Only DizNoids think Disney doesn't rely heavily on screens and projections.

    Kong's trackless vehicles park on a motion platform. I don't think RotR's will do that.

    To be frank, the ride system seems more like a covered version of Ratatouille. I would love to be proven wrong, but I get the feeling that we will not be tilting in the vehicle.

    ..I am curious if they will be putting effects in the vehicle though, such as vibrations and lighting effects.

    And perhaps it is, but Anaheim is more along with this attraction than Orlando. It may be easily possible if WDI wanted to just use some of the completed set's as a test for lighting & media mapping in the case of the screens.

    I was thinking they did some movement on the way to the platform. Unless the "track" is simply uneven.

    Look at the floor. That's not CGI. Also from DPB article: "Our second attraction, which puts guests in the middle of an epic battle between the Resistance and the First Order, is called Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. As you can see from this video, which was shot in the actual attraction, both the stakes, and the excitement are running high in this epic Star Wars cliffhanger!"
    Don't be so sure...at least from what I've heard.

    In the last scene, look at the giant head when the RV turns. It has to be CGI.

    Antarctica uses motion for its vehicles. If SeaWorld can do it, surely Disney can find a way.

    EotP/Antarctica's motion pales in comparison to Transformers/Spider-man. Even on the wild side.

    That said, I hope they have less motion than Dinosaur!
