    Re: Any Star Tours announcement this weekend?

    Two guys from Disney Merchandising had a panel on Star Wars / Disney exclusive products. I will post pics and some other tidbits on www.swstartours.net in the next day or two.

    Yah, couple years sounds about right. When I said "not happening soon" I meant that there won't be anything this year for Star Wars' 30th or even Star Tours' 20th since there have been a lot of rumors floating around about that.

    Will we see a 3D Star Tours? Interactive Star Tours? Randomized trip Star Tours? These are just some of the ideas tossed around.

    Oh yah I forgot about that. I guess Disney had one panel but that's about it. No real presence on the exhibition floor though.

    And when you post the scoop, you should post it here.

    I think its safe to say that it will happen either 2008 or 2009 or it wont be happening at all.

    With Lucas' apparent demand for digital projection, I think the trips should be entirely "random". Each trip consists of 5 scenes, but there are 20 different scenes to choose. So scenes are played in different orders and combinations for a much more unique experience.

    Re: Any Star Tours announcement this weekend?

    2 people came in last night at the universal studio store and were dressed for the convention. i was just too busy to think about asking about star tours updates. next time if i see someone from the convention, i'll ask.

    1 guy did tell me they brought an r2-d2 mailbox to the event.

    They had a panel on Thursday talking about new toys in the Star Wars/Disney line that will be coming out later this year and sometime next year. Five more are coming out in the Star Wars/Mr. Potato Head line - Boba Fett, Darth Maul, Luke, Leia and Han. They will also be doing more in the way of Disney characters as Star Wars characters, with Mickey as Luke, Minnie as Leia, Goofy as Vader, Donald as Han and I think Stitch as the Emperor.

    They also mentioned that since the princess line has been doing so well, they're doing a similar thing with Leia and Padme, where they'll have interchangeable clothes and hairstyles. That's still in the planning stage, but it looks pretty cool.

    Oh, and as part of the Jedi Mickey thing, they'll be releasing Jedi Mickey's lightsabre.

    Someone asked about Star Wars weekends coming to Anaheim, and a Disney rep said they're "working on it", so it's anyone's guess what that means.

    On another panel, some of the creators of the visual effects were also asked about Star Tours, and they said they had a number of different ideas for different places to go and things that would go wrong, but nothing has been authorized yet.

    And you'd be so correct. And I think us fans just need to rest with that answer. It's IN the works, which is always a welcome sign.

    When I spoke to this Mr. X about the People Mover though, he didn't quite answer, but said that he never thought that the submarines would have been coming back EVER. So he didn't want to say anything more than that. "One step at a time." is what he said.

    Re: Any Star Tours announcement this weekend?

    ^ thanks for that update! I really want those Disney Characters as Star Wars character action figures! I already have Jedi Mickey w/ Yoda 2pack. Would love for the others too. And if a Princess Leia doll came with an Ewok, i'll have to buy that too.

    Re: Any Star Tours announcement this weekend?

    For anyone interested, someone made a STAR TOURS diorama at Celebration 4 this weekend and it was REALLY cool. Photos are in my trip report in the Entertainment section:

    I have some pics posted of the Star Tours diorama as well. Mark should be contacting me when he is back from Celebration. He plans on adding more to it.

    Re: Any Star Tours announcement this weekend?

    Thanks for all the info. The Muppet figures people have been clamoring for for years; I only hope they are as high quality as the Palisades line was...they were really some of the greatest action figures ever.
