The ride will begin with guests entering a transport ship to meet General Leia Organa at a secret rendezvous point.

But Disney adds: ‘On their way to the hidden base, guests are intercepted and taken prisoner by the First Order as their ship is drawn into the hangar bay of a Star Destroyer.

‘The action then ramps up as guests seek to escape the clutches of Kylo Ren and the First Order.’

During the attraction, guests will come face to face with characters including Resistance heroes Rey, Poe and Finn as well as Kylo Ren and General Hux of the First Order.

Disney adds that the ride is one of the largest attractions it has ever created as it houses two full-sized At-At walkers and a Star Destroyer hangar bay – complete with a Tie fighter and a garrison of Stormtroopers.

It will also combine multiple ride systems, as in one sequence of the ride, a new simulator experience will give the sensation to guests that they are falling from space to crash land on Batuu.

Meanwhile, during another portion of the experience, guests will race through a Star Destroyer in a trackless ride vehicle featuring an onboard droid that reacts to its surroundings.

The ride will join the Smugglers Run attraction, which is a massive replica of the Millennium Falcon and sees guests engage in a dogfight with Tie Fighters.
