Disney Parks released a new virtual ride video to celebrate “Star Wars” Day — this one taking you on the“Rise of the Resistance ride at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland park in California and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.

The ride brings you on an adventure through a First Order starship after you are captured on the fictional planet of Batuu.

According to Disney Parks, “Along the way, you’ll discover some fascinating facts about this groundbreaking attraction and learn more about the Disney magic that brought it to life.”

Watch the ride below:

Back in December 2019, I rode the “Rise of the Resistance” ride. Read my takeaways below:

The wait time could be an issue when it opens to the public, as it seems like it’ll be a lengthy wait for a short adventure.

It’s more of a traditional roller coaster ride/experience than Smuggler’s Run, which is an interactive experience that plays more like a game.

There are still some bugs to work out with the audio and visual elements of the ride. And some guests may forget their color designations when being distributed to different parts of the ride.

But with a twist ending and multiple moments that provide easter eggs to the Star Wars series, the ride will be a welcome addition to Batuu, which, until now, has only had one ride.
