Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance (DHS) | Inside Universal Forums
  • As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to impact everywhere, we understand our users will have a lot of questions about how it affects the theme parks. We are entering unprecedented waters, and honestly, the answer is either "yea, probably", or "Too early to tell". We just don't know specifics until the theme parks give us an answer. At this time, we're asking to please leave the COVID talk to the appropriate COVID threads, and if something officially and specifically is impacted by a closure, then we can discuss it further in the respective threads. Thank you!

I watched the new commercial with footage from the ride, and I may have missed something but who was the female character in the hologram? I also saw her as a face character in Tim Tracker's video when he went to the AP preview.

As with Smuggler's Run, it does seem a bit odd that we're being sent on our mission by a character that 95% of guests will have no knowledge of.

Weren't there rumors that we were going to be briefed by Poe via hologram?

Rex was a new character when Star Tours first opened. He turned into such a fan favorite that he’s in SWGE.

Every character is new the first time you see them. Han, Luke and Leia were once new characters.

I’d argue that with a franchise like Star Wars, to not use the characters people love is a huge mistake.
To be fair, the characters people love (at least in the new trilogy where GE is based) are in the ride. We just have a new character as our entry point(?)

Wow the footage in that commercial is awesome! Love the lightsaber effect.

The action in the ATAT room looks really intense too, especially if they actually have that much pyro effects involved.

But I cant tell if that's beefed up for the commercial (similar to Mosa knocking the boat in the Jurassic World referb)
