It's kind of both?Can you give us a description of this attraction? Is it part ride, part walk-thru?
that is always amazing for a ride or attraction when the employees become part of it as "cast members" rather than simply hop onto the ride. heck, when a ride first opens, it is awesome when they have an "in-character" grand opening. for example, the transformers ride at universal first opened with Admiral Morshower's actor (leader of the autobot-human military alliance called NEST) announcing the event (possibly a new NEST base being set up), "NEST soldiers" were on patrol "protecting" the area, optimus and bumblebee arrived in vehicle mode and spoke, then special effects are activated to simulate an "off-camera" decepticon attack. optimus, bumblebee, and some NEST soldiers go off out of view to "fight" the decepticons and manage to drive them off. the ride then opens officially and the "NEST recruits" (riders) are allowed into the "base". it then proceeds for each person with a decepticon attack on the base as part of the ride.It's kind of both?
Before the main ride section there is the "pre-show" if you will. Most rides at Disney have a pre-show but the one at Rise is very involved.
The part involving the First Order is when your guest group gets captured by them.
Your group is then allowed to walk around the main hangar of their Star Destroyer. There, you can take photos, look at the impressive set pieces and interact with the First Order officers.
The hangar section is mostly just a very fancy way to do crowd control before they let you on the main ride but it is pretty fun.
The officers there will let you take a picture with them too and you can chat with them and they are always in character.
After that, they separate the audience and you have an officer line you up and give you instructions. Here they tell you that you will be entering a jail cell because they've decided to make you their prisoners.
The next section after that is the ride and it's all animatronics at that point. I wont reveal too much but if you want to see more there are a bunch of videos online. It's a lot of fun.
As I've mentioned they are all in character and have a really cute/mean attitude about them. I would say the majority of actors were women too. The officer who dealt with my group was really into it. She was always serious and would tell us to "be quiet" or "no smiling" whenever we acted out. She even would threaten us with some Star Wars styled punishments too.
Definitely worth getting to the park at 5am just to get on the ride
I remember in the Force Awaken, they like to dub in voice over for the stormtroopers (FN-2199 AKA TR-8R was physically played by a stuntman Liang Yang with voice line dubbed over by one of the Skywalker sound editor David Acord) i wonder if they have the stuntwomen does the action of getting shot while a voice talent wad brought in later to voice over the scream and voice command. I can definity see the benefit of having line redone in studio to make it more clearer or better.
i got Battlefront 2 in console so i wont be able to mod the troopers and officers, however, i can still play offline mode against first order heavy only as enemy (since they are voiced by a female voice actor)you want to gun down female troopers? here's an awesome mod that was just updated a few days ago, it sill works.
All-Female Trooper Legions Remastered
you'll need Frosty Mod Manager, but this mod makes all Imperial and First Order troops female. really awesome to use in the Co-op mode.
Great scene, man that assassin was good, kept fighting even while being choked. Also I think she survived as they handcuffed her to the dead policeman afterwards.
Great scene. I love how one girl chokes her out while the other holds her legs, then her hands dangle limp. I hope there is a high quality version of this scene soon in the future.
