    Elaborate Star Tours queue to be replaced with video screens?

    I was browsing another Disney forum where I came across a report that the new Star Tours queue will feature very simplistic setpieces compared to the old queue and depend mostly on video screens to tell the story instead of AA's and actual props. Of course knowing Tom Fitzgerald is heading up this project I wouldn't at all be surprised. Has anyone heard anything about this??

    Heres the thread with the news btw: New Star Tours II Queue? - WDWMAGIC.COM Forums'

    All I know is come opening day there better be a well done queue complete with robots and stuff or there will be alot of angry fans!

    Aren't they talking about the WDW version though? I know ours is supposed to be plussed more than WDW's so I don't think we have to worry about the queue being downgraded to just video screens.

    Disneyland and walt Disney world had the same indoor queue and they will have the same indoor queue this time as well. It's supposed to be an identical experience. As some people mentioned at that site Fitzgerald has done this before with spas mountains queue, the memo subs, and replacing horizons with mission space

    Ironic, considering Fitzgerald appeared in Horizons.

    This attraction has been in the works for years. I seriously doubt they are going on the cheap like that. Most of the set pieces have been designed long before we hear anything about it and many of them built off site (at least that's how it usually goes with attractions like this). What's going on now is that stuff is being installed in the Star Tours show building. So I mostly regard anything I hear about going on the cheap or being delayed as bogus rumors.

    I sure hope that's not the plan. What a stupid idea. Why would they do that when they could just tweak the queue to fit the new theme?

    I would guess there will be some sort of interactive experience as part of the line, but I can't imagine it not being at least comparable to what was there when it closed.

    Hmm. Now that's an element I haven't considered. It's a new thing that Disney has been pushing lately. With the games you can play in Space Mountain's line at Disney World or the interactive line at their Winnie the Pooh ride. Maybe something similar is going into the Star Tours II line. Just as one element though not replacing the whole thing with it.

    While there are similar aspects, the two queues are not identical.
