The Disney Parks Blog has announced that they partnered with Lucasfilm and Industrial Light & Magic to update the Star Tours- The Adventure Continues attraction some new sequel trilogy destinations.
“Passengers who board the Starspeeder 1000 never know where in the galaxy their pilot C-3PO and navigator R2-D2 will take them. We’ve added flights to Jakku, Crait and even Batuu! Along the way, we’ve encountered many of our favorite characters from the Skywalker saga.”
Probably because the sequel films are doing really well with Galaxy’s Edge they felt the need to take that brand synergy to Star Tours as well.
The new scenes will launch on Star Tours on December 20th, the same day as Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters.
Star Tours attractions at Disneyland, Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Paris and Tokyo Disney Resort will receive the new scenes. I hope we still get the original and prequel scenes as well. What made the ride so fun was that you never knew which scenes you would get. But when the new films came in they kind of changed that.
Disney also released the concept image and this description:
“In the trailers for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, you caught glimpses of the ocean moon Kef Bir. All I can say at this point is that Starspeeders will be heading there soon!”
