No more excuses. After this week, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge will be complete at the Walt Disney World Resort. The highly anticipated anchor attraction of Disney's multi-billion-dollar Star Wars land - Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance - opens to the public on Thursday, months after the rest of the project.
Galaxy's Edge's debut at Disneyland last spring led to disappointing attendance, and the land's opening at the end of the summer in Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida didn't exactly pack in the crowds like many expected/feared, either. The word from Disney was that many fans were waiting for the complete experience before booking their trips. That means Rise of the Resistance.
Will this new attraction - perhaps the most technically ambitious theme park ride ever built - make everyone forget about the first few months with Galaxy's Edge and instead remember this land as nothing but a rousing success? Will it drive record traffic to the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts, as Disney surely intended for an investment of this size? What will it take for you to consider this new ride a success?
I am here in Orlando to cover the media event for Rise of the Resistance and am planning to publish my review on Wednesday morning. Until then, I've collected all of my previous Galaxy's Edge videos for you in a playlist, to re-live the Star Wars land story up until now.
But before I share my opinion on Rise of the Resistance on Wednesday, I would like to hear what expectation you have for this ride. So let's put that up for a vote.
In the comments, please share more detail about your expectations for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and how you believe that it, ultimately, should be judged.Tweet
