A very sad but interesting article from OC Weekly talking about what we will miss most from Star Tours.
The Star Tours attraction at both Disneyland and Disney World will be closing for renovations–which means, yes, we’ll have to soon say good-bye to the daily express tourist ship to Endor. Instead, we’ll be boarding Starspeeders “in a high-speed pod race through the desert canyons of Tatooine.” Which also means, yes, Star Tours 2.0 will include scenes from the prequels.
Star Tours’ final flights at Disneyland will take place on July 26, but let’s savor our favorite parts about the original attraction until then. Who knows: Maybe these features will still be there when the ride re-opens again in about a year, but more than likely with the new Phantom Menace-y storyline in place… they won’t.
