    Just a much needed revamp of the ride. New simulators, new ride destinations, but no more REX

    I would try to search it through MiceChat, there have been a few threads on it that can go into more detail of what they are doing.

    Okay, in all seriousness, Star Tours is getting a complete redo. New routes that mix-and-match to create lots of different possible experiences, all in 3D, updated queue, new characters, and the whole thing will be set between the two Star Wars trilogies. Should open next year.

    To the OP, I suggest reading the two Project Trackers in the Disneyand forum (one for Disneyland, one for DCA) for info on the projects. The bulk of the posts are banter but the first post of each of those threads contains great info and links to more information.

    My son was 4 last time we rode the ride. July 4th! When the screen came down and he saw the same dang robot with the same dang spiel my son said "Mom, he just says that every time because he is a bad driver!"

    Oh to be a kid again!

    Star Tours II will be so good that all the other rides will be walk-ons when it opens in 2011.

    The new Star Tours will be the best thing George Lucas has been involved with in 20 years.

    Re: What's going on with Star Tours?

    Are they actually replacing the simulators? I was under the impression that the existing ones were getting a refurb but would be remaining?

    I read somewhere that the simulators were installed through a hole in the building during the original installation so, if true, I can't see them easily removing the old ones let alone installing brand new ones.

    That said, I hope the new version is open before May 15th. Going to be at the resort that week.

    George Kalogridis announced at destination D that there will be 54 possible locations. Also Tom Fitzgerald showed concept art of two new characters that they are designing for the new ride.

    I think it was more like 54 possible scenarios that could happen on a trip. I doubt there will be that many destinations.

    I'm guessing there will be three first scenes, six middle scenes, and then 3 ending scenes. Or something like that.
