Rise of the Resistance Reaction From Twitter
The FOMO is real, kids. Many people I know are enjoying the opening days and nights of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge’s newest attraction – Rise of the Resistance.
On the other hand, I am sitting in snowbound Central Massachusetts admiring a freshly plowed driveway.
However, at least I have lots of company here on the couch in New England.

That said, I am NOT spoiler averse.

So, if you are wanting to NOT be spoiled as to the working parts and pieces of Rise of the Resistance….

….exit the ride, now.
Sill Here? Good.
My favorite review is from my online acquaintance Matt Martin (above), who I trust to have treated Star Wars properly in his work with Disney Imagination.
But NPH’s (et al.) ride leaves little to the imagination:

However, I am pretty excited about the OVERWHELMINGLY positive notes received by the new ride.

And Josh Gad’s endorsement is pretty definitive.
#RiseOfTheResistance is the most impressive ride I have ever been on. I do not think people are ready for the scale, the scope, the surprises & the immersiveness of this soon-to-be iconic attraction. Folks, it’s a game changer. Congrats to @strowbridge & the team of Imagineers🙌 pic.twitter.com/uZ7TamhkN0

And I think on his way into Rise of the Resistance, Josh found Samantha!

And perhaps the most momentous tweet, this time from Anaheim:
