(KGTV) — Before the new year, the Resistance will rise at Walt Disney World in Florida.

The theme park will celebrate the opening of its second "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" attraction, "Rise of the Resistance," in a special dedication ceremony with characters like Chewbacca and Rey on Wednesday. The immersive attraction will then be opened to the public starting Dec. 5 at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Watch the dedication ceremony live below at 3:55 p.m. (PT):

"Rise of the Resistance" will take guests on a journey alongside the Resistance, blasting off from Batuu, only to be captured by the First Order. During the cinematic adventure, riders will come face-to-face with Stormtroopers, massive TIE fighters and AT-ATs, and Kylo Ren as they escape a Star Destroyer to return to Black Spire Outpost.

In Anaheim, "Rise of the Resistance" will open at Disneyland on Jan. 17, 2020.

Currently, though, guests can embark on a mission aboard the iconic Millennium Falcon on "Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run" or peruse the marketplaces and landscape of Batuu at both parks.
