Disneyland are preparing to shake up the rollercoaster world with their new ‘Star Wars’ themed ride.
The new ‘Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge’ theme park is already getting fans extremely excited but now, as speculation grows, it is rumoured that the park’s feature ride ‘Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance’ could last for as long as 28 minutes.
The project, costing an eye-watering $24 billion, will be will be based across 14 acres at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida, and at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. The plans have been in construction since they were developed back in 2016, with Disney explaining that the parks will be a “remote village which was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes, but the prominence of the outpost has been bypassed with the rise of hyperspace travel.
The Creative Executive of Disney Imagineering, Scott Trowbridge, described the ride as “the most epic attraction we’ve ever built” in a teaser video.
“This attraction invites you to be recruited to the Resistance and stand up against the First Order. And you even come face-to-face with Kylo Ren. You make it through that, you get back to the planet, you’ll be a hero of the Resistance and be celebrated throughout the land,” Trowbridge explained.
On top of that, Alicia Stella, writer for the Disney and More, said the ride could have “more than 300 animatronic figures” on her podcast ‘Theme Park Stop’ before suggesting that the ride is rumoured to last 28 minutes.
