Guests move from scene to scene as they are captured by the First Order and again rescued by the Resistance.

Keep your eyes open, as each scene has so much to see. This is the top choice for attractions adults will enjoy in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and they don’t need to be Star Wars fans to do so.

Another ride that has Star Wars fans excited is Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run. Those dreaming about flying this hunk of junk finally get to live that dream on this ride.
