Star Tours at Disney Parks Begins Service to New Destinations Inspired by Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Today, as fans head to theaters for the epic conclusion to the Star Wars Skywalker saga, guests at Disney Parks around the world will be boarding Starspeeders and heading to exciting destinations inspired by Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Over the years, C-3PO and R2-D2 have taken Star Tours passengers to some pretty amazing destinations and the adventure on the surface of the ocean moon Kef Bir is one of the wildest we’ve ever created with our partners at Industrial Light & Magic!

The updated adventures will include an urgent transmission from none other than Lando Calrissian to join in the battle to end all battles!


It’s been an incredible Star Tours journey (starting a long time ago in a Disney Park far, far away — well, actually not far from Walt Disney Imagineering, at Disneyland in Anaheim.) Since then, we’ve had a great time adding new sequences to keep Star Tours – The Adventures Continue relevant with the evolving film saga, and even more exciting for you to experience!

With the new Rise of Skywalker updates, Star Tours now offers you more than 100 storytelling combinations (but don’t worry, for the next few months we’ll exclusively feature the destinations inspired by Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker).

Today we’re also excited to share with you the new attraction poster for Star Tours – The Adventures Continue.  As you’ll see, the Starspeeder is in for some epic adventures this time around, and we can’t wait for you to experience them yourself!


  • Hope you’ll move Star Tours to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in the very near future.

  • Will we have to worry about lightning and strobe effects?

  • I can’t wait to see the new scenes!
