This is just because you know very well what the old one was and we have really very little idea and zero experience with the new one. Though it may turn out after riding it that you still prefer the old one. That does happen. I love the old one too. But I'm excited to see the new one and give it a chance to really wow me. Hopefully it will win you over as well.
Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter
absolutely fantastic! according to the disney parks blog, it is not guaranteed that you will visit any of these places. I'm hoping for cloud city and the return of endor. I don't see bespin happening as one of the ride destinations because you never see it in the movies. doesn't leave much to go on...
I really like the way they are going about this (not so much for the 3D aspect, but If they use newer projection technology then that would be great) I would kindof like to think that with the newer concept the designers would be able to add new planet destinations as the ride gets older. I think it's a wonderful idea to have multiple destinations. I have high hopes for this ride.
I love the new logo animation. very elegant and futuristic while maintaining the same idea as the original. I'm glad (assuming this is the official logo) that it isn't labeled "mark II" and is just called star tours.
the cg isn't the greatest in these vids, but I'm sure for the actual ride they will put in a LOT more detail.
p.s. Alderaan = safest planet in the galaxy. epic.
Say goodbye to the people onshore because you will never see them again...
then again you've probably never seen them before
Check out my first trip report! It's full to the brim with epicness.
AND HERE IS MY NEWEST TRIP REPORT!!! It's better because it's new. and in space.
