    Re: Disney please update Star Tours!

    With all of the "randomnability" of Digital technology, and the ease of loading a different program into a simulator, I think it would be great for them to do three new ridefilms - that way you never really know which flight you are going to get until you have boarded - just like Indiana Jones - never the same ride twice. That would really increase the rerideability of it.

    One thing we all have to have when it comes to updating Star Tours is patience, a LARGE amount of patience.

    Re: Disney please update Star Tours!

    The last I heard the ride was supposed to get an overhaul in time for the 20th anniversary in 2007.
    You can think I'm wrong, but that's no reason to quit thinking.

    It's not like it's just up to Disney to update Star Tours... you got to consider Lucas as well. Star Wars is his franchise.

    Well now that pixars is back in the picture, maybe Lucas will update the film. All disney has to do is buy the new digi projectors.

    Actually, in this case, it is just up to Disney.

    Lucas wanted to update Star Tours in 1999 so when Episode I hit theaters, a new ride film would be installed into Star Tours. Double promotion.

    Eisner, in his inifnite wisdom, decided that it wasn't worth spending money updating a ride people were still going on.

    Despite that, ILM produced a new Star Tours ride film that features a Pod Race sequence and it's sitting in a vault somewhere up in the Lucafilm Archives just waiting for Disney to give Lucas the "OK" to update the 19 year old ride.

    In the case of Star Tours and Anaheim Star Wars Weekends, the ball is in Disney's court as Lucasfilm has been ready to go for YEARS.

    I'd love to see a Star Tours update, but I can't bear the thought of losing Rex! He's the best part of the ride!

    Re: Disney please update Star Tours!

    I will honestly cry if they remove the old film and REX (no matter how much it is aged/dated) for a pod race. It just doesn't make much sense, IMO. I mean, I could see a scenario of a crash landing and accidentally getting pod racer engines strapped on, but...It still seems like far to much of a stretch for my tastes. Perhaps something from the Clone Wars or the time in between Episode 3 and 4. Something original that would give Star Wars fans something they can't get anywhere else, yet still have name recognition.

    What would be ideal to me is if they just updated the film/screen technology. The ride never gets old for me, but digitizing it would help out a lot.

    Re: Disney please update Star Tours!

    I imagine that Star Tours would continue to be set after Episode VI: "Return of the Jedi". And, there is the potential for Star Tours to offer multiple flights simultaneously. So, who knows?

    I'm totally up for a new revised Star Tours. I love this attraction but with the recent Star Wars movie, it could definately use a lift. I agree, keep the hairdo lady!

    A little off-topic, but I always loved how the famous Star Tours safety video was homaged/parodied at the Star Trek:Experience in Las Vegas. I found it hilarious.
