The new behind-the-scenes footage aired Thursday night during "The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration on ABC. The segment included footage of passengers on the ride, droids, explosions, Kylo Ren and even new glimpses at the ride's queue.
Additional footage released Friday shows some of the the same scenes except it features Disney's "Volunteer Family of the Year," which got to experience the attraction ahead of its debut. Watch that video below.
As the story of the ride goes, riders will be recruited to fight the First Order. They will first board a full-size transport shuttle before being captured by a Star Destroyer and the First Order. From there, they'll come face-to-face with Kylo Ren as they try to escape.
Trackless ride vehicles will transport rides through various scenes, where they'll encounter Stormtroopers, TIE fighters, lightsabers and full-sized AT-ATs.
Rise of the Resistance is comprised of multiple ride systems, making it one of Disney's most ambitious attractions.
Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is scheduled to open December 5 at Hollywood Studios and on January 17 at Disneyland in California.
