Well, we all knew this would be coming!

Star Tours at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and likely the one in Disneyland too, has been updated to include new segments from The Rise of Skywalker.

For those unfamiliar with the attraction, Star Tours is a flight simulator ride, with a digital 3D video. Guest board a ship that is accidentally piloted by C-3PO, and combines special effects, music and scenes from Star Wars films.

The latest update could include the following according to the Orlando Sentinel:

In the latest update, without being too spoiler-y, riders may splash down on Kef Bir, the ocean moon of Endor. That includes an eye-to-eye-to-eyes encounter with dianogas, a creature who attacked Luke Skywalker in the trash-compactor scene of the original “Star Wars“ film in 1977. And there’s a new climactic battle scene in an undisclosed outer space location. Laser cannons are involved.

What is really exciting to me is that Lando Calrissian (Billy De Williams) makes an appearance and interacts with C-3PO and R2-D2. I’m so happy they added him in there!

Of course, for the next few months, these new Rise of Skywalker scenes will be in every ride through, as opposed to just the rotations of the all the other scenes.

Star Tours is always one of our family favorites when we visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Our son has been known to ride it 7-10 time during one trip.
