It was such a long time ago that Disney announced the refurbishment of Star Tours and Disney and Star Wars Geeks around the world rejoiced. Only a few months ago did Disney give more information about the attraction. Yes, Anthony Daniels did let it slip but to what extent we didn’t know. That was until a few months ago when Disney announced that the new pilot would indeed be C3PO of the Starspeeder 1000. Today, the Disney Parks Blog released this photo and text:
It was a big day for Star Tours recently, as Star Wars creator George Lucas, joined by producer Rick McCallum, paid a visit to Disneyland Park to take a few test rides on the attraction with our Walt Disney Imagineering team. After experiencing adventures to several of the Star Wars worlds aboard the Starspeeder 1000, George and Rick gave the team a big thumbs up on their progress. George even took a moment to pose with the Audio-Animatronics figure of C-3PO in the Starspeeder cockpit!
Are you excited? You only have until 20th May until Disney Hollywood Studios opens its doors to guest!
