Since the launch of Star Tours – The Adventures Continue, we’ve had a great time partnering with Lucasfilm and Industrial Light & Magic to update the attraction with new and exciting 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.
I know that many of you are as excited as I am about the December 20th film launch of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Today I’m equally excited to announce that on the same December date, Star Tours – The Adventures Continue will be adding new destinations inspired by the latest episode of the Star Wars saga … at Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Paris and Tokyo Disney Resort.
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!
We’ll be sharing more details in the future, but for now I just wanted to say how super-excited we are that Star Tours – The Adventures Continue is continuing to live up to its name. As C-3PO would say, “Here we go again!”
I agree with Terrill. My last 2 visits my family rode it 7 times and we got the same 2 new scenes every time (where it ends on Batuu/Galaxys Edge). I’m sure it’s no coincidence and they were hyping the opening of Galaxys Edge, which I understand. But I would LOVE to see it go back to random scenes, as soon as possible.
I too love this ride and go on it every time I visit Disneyland. My only negative comment is that the random selection of scenes seems to be skewed; of the last 13 times I have gone on the ride its been the exact same video sequence 9 of those times.
We LOVE this ride and go on it multiple times during the day to enjoy the many backdrops!
By any chance, is there going to be a Galactic Night or any special event for “The Rise of the Skywalker” release?
