You can check out the video now in the player below!

Chiang is also the founder of DC Studio and was the Design Director for The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones, a concept artist for The Force Awakens, and a production designer for Rogue One.

When it opens, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will make guests feel like they’re on a Star Destroyer inside a hangar bay while “Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run” will give guests the opportunity to fly the Millennium Falcon, piloting the ship, shooting blasters or preparing for hyperspace – all while completing a critical mission. But how you perform on the mission holds even bigger stakes: perform with skill and you may earn extragalactic credits, while bringing the ship back banged up could put you on the list of a bounty hunter. End up on Harkos’s list and you may face a problem if you show up at the local cantina!

Purchase the novel tied to the parks’ lore here.

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will later open at the Disneyland Resort in California on Friday, January 17.
