    Star Tours II

    So, a Star Tours II has been announced, but not much is known about its current state. So, I thought I would allow everyone to have a little fun, what would you like to see in a Star Tours update?

    I would like it to be a little more exciting. The original just doesn't really do it for me. Here are some ideas:

    Fly through a dog fight between X-wings, Y-wings, A-wings, etc. against some TIE fighters.

    Fly into an astroid and almost get eaten by a giant worm (Episode V style)

    View the Millenium Falcon being chased by the Slave I (Boba Fett's Ship)

    Fly to the surface of a planet and stumble upon a battle between rebels and imperials.

    Take heavy fire from and AT-AT

    Ship crash lands

    Ship goes into hyper drive

    I like the premise of the original, I hope they keep the same concept. I am kind of weary of how they're going to squeeze in Boba Fett and Yoda, so hopefully it doesn't deter too far.

    I'd like to see something original, though, something that doesn't necessarily rely on the existing movies.

    Great Ideas!
    Can we have fire control buttons built into the armrests?
    Of course, I don't know how that would work with everybody firing at once.

    Re: Star Tours II

    what would be cool is a more interactive pilot(no more its my first flight jokes)

    led hd screens
    unfortunately alot of younger peole dont know luke leia and han threy know anikan obi wan yoda and the whole clone wars cartoon saga..
    that being said how about a few random destinations
    tattoine endor, bespin yavin
    they are played at diffrent times.
    the whole deathstar run, at at attack on hoth has been over done, i would like to see thebeggers canyon runon tattoine,the second death star flythru over endor,being pursued by the empire around bespin..and yavin.. buti think over all what we will get is something more along the lines of clone warsera places and battles

    Re: Star Tours II

    You can keep it all just PLEASE fly me anywhere else besides ENDOR!!! The food there is terrible and I hate climbing trees just to ask the conceirge where I can get a pizza.

    Other suggestions:

    - I agree with the previous poster, LED screens!
    - Make the ride experience interactive like how in Mission Space every passenger is responsible for pushing some type of button to contribute to some task in the mission and have it play out on the viewscreen. Given the fact that the Starspeeders seat well over 10 guests at a time maybe only have this functionality for the front row of guests. Guests could interact by manning the controls for the laser cannons, activating/de-activating the jump to lightspeed, controlling the landing gear, opening the communication channels between R-2 and the pilot, etc. And if the guest doesn't participate the pilot can default to some auto-pilot speil.
    - New pre-boarding video!!
    - Whatever you put in, it must not include Jar Jar Binks.
    - Build a more realistic facade over the motion simulator. Painting a ship on a box in black-light reactive paint really doesn't do the trick for me, even when I was a kid.

    I'd like to see an interactive C3PO, and glassless 3D. Some fresh paint and new lighting in places, redesigns along the exits, and flat screens with updated safety videos... they could look a lot more futuristic.

    4-D.

    Make it a bit longer then the original. And some nice new simulators with a tad bit more comfy seating.

    Maybe they could put a few EU characters in for us SW fans. Wouldn't mind seeing Dash or Mara (as the Emperors hand). I think it would be fun if they put an actor in there too. How about a handsome Han Solo or sexy Anakin.

    HOLY CRAP!!!!

    I almost peed myself with excitement when I saw this. As a closet Star Wars geek, I love Star Tours. I grew tired (as I'm sure everyone did) of the constant Star Tours 2 rumors, but now it seems legit! I have faith that Lucas and Disney will come up with something innovative and awesome.

    This is kinda nit picky, but it seems that there is a continuity problem with this ride that has always bugged me a little. We are told the Star Speeder is undergoing maintenance while we wait, but when the doors open the passengers from the previous flight are just leaving. Surely they could wait 30 seconds for the other passengers to disembark before letting the next group on.

    It needs to keep the tour concept becasue that's what it is! It's Star Tours not Star Wars the ride, what's the point? Also since it is the whole tour concept (Adressing Jetlife) I don't think weapons would be on the ship.
