    A counter-argument to this is to suggest that the "facelift" also pays homage to the attraction before it. I was glad to see your comparison of the queues side-by-side because I NEVER realized just how closely they compared. Would you fault me for being impressed by what seems like such a simple trick of the paintbrush?

It's a guessing game that Disney knows will fool guests, you can push a button and think your going to the Death Star but end up going somewhere else because it will all be ALL computer controlled. You really believe Disney wants to pay Lucas the extra money to film or do all the destinations in the Star Wars universe to please us? The gimmick will die down in less then a year, like the ride variations on Indiana Jones ride.
    Touche. I cannot fathom a way for them to jump that technological hurdle, though if Disney could it might throw the money at it. But more to your point, they're putting out PR on a reality (the many subtle variations of their fixed storylines) that the final ride system just won't live up to, even if only down the road.

    Seeing as that "tours" feel was always the point, I'm worried the new destinations and storylines are going to become overly dramatic and ridiculously one-dimensional (like the prequel trilogy).

    Here is what i believe the Starspeeder 1000 will look like in the main queue. Notice the droids from Episode 1 helping R2 and Threepio.
