When Disney World introduced fans to the Rise of the Resistance ride, many felt they had been transported to a galaxy far, far away. Despite some logistical hiccups during the COVID era, the attraction has earned rave reviews from many Star Wars and theme park enthusiasts. However, it appears it may now be facing a legal challenge. Raven Sun Creative has sued Walt Disney Parks and Resorts on the grounds of patent infringement.

According to Florida Politics, Raven Sun Creative owns a patent for technology that coordinates videos with a vertical-moving trolley, allowing those who ride it to feel as though they are moving within the environment they see on the screen. Their lawsuit claims that Rise of the Resistance ride uses the same technology without permission. It alleges that in 2014, Raven Sun submitted a detailed proposal for the technology to Disney Imagineers but that Disney reportedly passed on the idea.
