Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

I’d imagine they want as much of the actual ride as possible to be a surprise....
That doesn't make much sense to me when talking about a theme park ride. It will only be a surprise to the first 1000 guests or so until the videos and descriptions leak out. It's not like a movie where the bulk of the people who really care about it will see in the first two weeks.

Ride news - for what its worth. I asked about ride capacity.
  • There are 38 total ride cars (38 in CA, 38 in FL - just for clarification)
  • There can be 36 cars in "show space" at one time (8 riders x 36 cars = 288 riders at once)
  • Cars/riders will only briefly see each other when loading and unloading, but not during the ride.
  • CA has about 28 more cars to convert to ADA. 3rd shift has been dragging. FL is further behind. (obviously)

Are the West World Storm Troopers all AAs?

Any word on the operation of the ride? Can the show function yet without shutting down?

The 50 or so in the hangar? From what I saw, yes but they have movement and they are different heights too. By movement I mean they have a little sway like a person would, standing in one place for a long period of time. I've also been told I can post a cool picture of them on Sunday after the Freeform TV special. Disney is cracking down a little more as it gets closer. As expected.

I was wondering about that because if they're supposed to be standing at attention it'd almost be better if they weren't animatronics and just still figures. But slight movements like that could make them look at attention and lifelike at the same time.

Now I'm gonna be staring at the stormtroopers instead of absorbing the room as the First Order whisks me away, lol.

Do you have an official list of the animatronics we will see on the ride?
I don't have an "official" one, but here's what I am aware of (anyone else can feel free to add or correct me)
  • BB-8 (caves in the queue)
  • Nien Nunb (driving the ITS shuttle)
  • First Order troops (main hangar)
  • Kylo Ren (3 different places I believe)
  • Your ride vehicle droid (every ride vehicle)
  • Mon Calamari - not Ackbar (end of the ride)

..when the GMA special was on yesterday I was watching them in the background. I don't think they had them moving.

I don't know how many people research rides ahead of time to that degree. I'm active on Disney boards, but I could only tell you a little about what happens on the Falcon or a handful of other rides I haven't ridden yet. For "regular" folks, I'm sure they know even less.

Which is even more of a reason for Disney not to care about showing things before the ride opens.

I'm not sure I follow. If they're showing stuff on GMA and all manner of popular media, then it would be showing folks that otherwise wouldn't see it. The hardcore folks will search it out, but why "ruin" it for the people who aren't looking for it? Then again, movie trailers have been giving stuff away for years. 😄

There appears to be 7-8 more troopers in the AT-AT scene.

At 1:00
