    Carrie Fisher is NOT a CG character. It is the actual footage from the original 1977 Star Wars film A New Hope. Her mouth movements are manipulated to make it look like the words she is saying in the ride. The voice is also actually Carrie Fisher's voice. I have ridden this ride 15 times today and I have seen that specific scene 7 times and paid very close attention to the Princess Leia character as she is my favorite.

    My family went on the ride today. Because I am pregnant, I was unable to go on it. I will say that my husband, kids, dad and brother all loved it. Now I have to wait til the fall.

    I am not going to say your wrong because I don't know how they did the effect. But I HIGHLY doubt they pulled out film from 1977 and re-digitized it, when 95-99% of everything else in the ride is CGI Animation. In my eye she had a CG tinge to her, I do computer graphics/animation and I notice the subtle differences between renders and reality.

    My buddy told me that there was a scene where General G. shows up and starts swiping at the audience with his quad-sabers. Then, as expected, his disease takes over and he coughs on passengers and there are these little fans that emit some water vapor. So real!

    There are no in-cabin effects, so your "friend" is lying.

    In ways yes, but in other ways, it felt completely different. It's really hard to explain without having anything to show. You have to experience it for yourself.

    So, he pulled a 'Forrest Gump' meets 'Avatar' digital Princess Leia Organa Solo on us? I would sure hope so, seen Carrie Fisher lately? Unless they pulled her out Galactic Rehab for one more mission (did you know she was high while making Star Wars - LOL). Wait, that would be one hell of ride, no? "Galactic Winning! =}

    Lucas does have I.L.M. behind him, so when has ILM disappointed us?
