The Backdrop

Considering how fans were waiting for Galaxy’s Edge to open eagerly, Disney did not disappoint. They have made this new attraction a truly immersive experience for fans and visitors where the choices they make will help them create a virtual profile and affect the outcomes of their interactions with the world around them. 

The attraction is set against the backdrop of Batuu. It is a remote outpost that once used to be a busy crossroads but now is a bustling port for people trying to avoid detection. Everyone from rogue traders to smugglers passes here to stay out of the clutches of the First Order. 

Let us now look at the two main attractions of the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Main Attractions

Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Every Star Wars fan knows what the Millennium Falcon is, and this attraction lets them control it. Guests get to ride this attraction in 3 unique roles. These roles include the Pilot, the Gunner, or the Engineer. 


The pilot is undoubtedly the most exciting and popular choice among the guests. The pilots enjoy the most of the action and the best views and, obviously, fly the Millennium Falcon. 

The Gunners are loyal compatriots of pilots, and they are in charge of firing the weapons. 

The Engineer’s role lets the guest be in charge of repairing the damage to the ship. Even though it is the least desired role, you’re likely to get it if you choose the Single Rider Line. 

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Attraction

If you truly want to be a part of the Star Wars fight between good and evil, “Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance” is for you. It puts visitors at the center stage of the fight between the First Order and the Resistance. Disney has claimed this ride to be one of the most advanced and immersive experiences. 

In the first stage, this attraction takes you through various huge rooms with interesting names like the “cargo bay” or the “interrogation room”. Guests can geek out to the fullest at the sight of X-wing fighters, TIE fighters, and Animatronic Stormtroopers. After entering the first room, the ride can go on for about 15-30 minutes as it passes through other fun-filled stages. 

The premise is that you’ve been captured, and Poe has promised to return to help you. At the second stage, you board vehicles that can not be tracked as they take you through a hanger and bring you face to face with Kylo Ren. At this point, you’ll get to enjoy the immersive, stunning, and remarkable experiences, which we’ll leave as a surprise.
