According to the report, details of the lawsuit claims of Raven Sun Creative going to Disney World with the technology back in the year 2014. However, no interest was shown in the attraction. Six years later, the company contacted Disney for a second time, however, they claimed that Walt Disney had already outright infringed on their patent. For Raven Sun Creative, it was clear that the House of Mouse had no intention to stop their smash hit attraction. The report suggests Disney also communicated that they would not pay for any 'continued' breach of the patent.

Disney's Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is considered to be one of the company's most technologically advanced attractions to date. It was first envisioned in the year 2015.
