Walt Disney World Resort More Walt Disney World Resort Stories

May the Fourth Be With You!

Today, May 4, we unveiled a stunning new piece of Star Tours art which serves as the attraction poster at Disneyland park and the marquee at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

'May the Fourth Be With You'

Designed by Imagineer Scot Drake, the piece features the new Starspeeder 1000 surrounded by many of the planets, vehicles and characters from the show. Look for Darth Vader lurking in the shadows.

The photo below shows the new marquee as it was being installed just this morning at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

  • Awww… no more big Threepio face.

    Although, I guess you couldn’t very well keep the old artwork up, since Rex is not our pilot in the past timeline.

  • Whens the poster for sale 🙂

  • I spy with my little eye, THE MILLENIUM FALCOLN!!!!!

  • does anyone know if they are doing previews of this… we are leaving disney 2 days before it opens 🙁

  • I hope to one day wear an Imagineer hard hat

  • Can you buy this poster?!

  • Any early test flights for Florida Resident Season Pass Holders???

  • Star wars Weekends Rock!!!!!!!!!!! Thank You Disney!!!!!!

  • I second Nicole! We would LOVE to be able to take part of a soft opening as Annual Passholders!! PLEASE!

  • That looks awesome!

    That is a great poster.

    Also, I noticed that recently the mural at Disneyland has been updated to show the Starspeeder 1000. It looks great.

  • Hey! Isn’t that the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs?!?

  • It would be awesome if that image was on the cover of the Disneyland guide maps when Star Tours opens there on June 3rd.

  • Love it! It has such vibrant colors and it has so much elements to it. Only 16 days left until I can hop on one of those Starspeeders and tour the galaxy!

  • By the way, I love the new Star Tours attraction page on the Disneyland website!

  • I’ll be up in a couple weeks and can’t wait to try out the new Star Tours 3D ride. I wish the other parks got some new rides every few years.

  • Now I love looking at things like this in detail and I cant help but notice that after magnifying the cockpit, I see a Twi’lek, Orange Clad humanoid and Teal clad humanoid. Is that a star tours cast member? And on the far right is that GEORGE LUCAS with his signature hair?? Also hunting over this pic for hidden mickey’s; not sure but Coruscant has some circles that almost make me wonder…. Cant wait to see the merchandise that will be amde available and look forward to seeing what has been made that was previewed at Celebration V last August on the Disney panel! Go Grievous Stitch!!!

  • Hmmm… our pilot C-3PO is in the cockpit, I see. How he feels about flying, I wonder … Hmmm 🙂

  • My son and I cannot wait to experience Star Tours – Cool!
