  • Today's random factoid: Hyperspace Mountain is considered canon

    "The Imagineers consulted with Lucasfilm Story Group to ensure the attraction would fit into the canon timeline and decided to tell the story of the space battle portion of the Battle of Jakku, which also appeared in the novel Lost Starsand the Star Wars Battlefront video game[5]. New starfighter animation and musical arrangements of John Williams tracks were produced for the overlay and the temporary attraction opened November 15th, 2015"


    It's a slow day at work today

    Hyperspace Mountain is a Star Wars themed seasonal overlay to the Space Mountain roller coaster...

      Well to be fair, the original has a THIRD Death Star, so I can see why they don't consider that canon. It's cool that they put their heads together and wanted to use a ride overlay as a way to fit in with the overall story and the Battle of Jakku.

        The new one isn't canon either.

              They shouldn't have called it season of the force. They should've called it "4 years of the force". Horrible.

                Star Tours The Adventures Continue definitely can't be canon since we time travel, and definitely because there's that 3rd Death Star. I mean how else can we see Finn on Jakku and then fight over Naboo with N-1 Starfighters? But in the end, I don't really care since the attraction is one of the most fun for me. I'd rather go for all varieties of time periods rather than limiting the ride.

                Personally, I'm kinda tired of Hyperspace Mountain even though they did get the projections better than when this overlay started, it still makes the ride too bright inside.

                    Why do you think Luke was so pissed off at Uncle Owen for making him stay to work on the farm for another season?

                      ST:TOR (The Original Ride) had a 3rd Death Star not accounted for in the movies, but the Death Star in ST:TAC (The Adventures Continue) is the first Death Star under construction. Without the Season of the Force additions (and hand-waving from Lucas about an Imperial Walkers/Hoth skirmish prior to Empire) there is no time travel in ST:TAC.

                          I wish, though it would certainly make for a perfect excuse to keep SOTF around.

                              I have been watching Clone Wars, and the existence of Star Tours is canon, since there are Star Tours travel posters in the back of some episodes (albeit in Aurebesh). Just the events of the original Star Tours are now considered Legends (anyone know why?) and I never considered the current Star Tours canon even before the buyout. Regardless of additions from TFA, it's hard to justify it as canon since the ride's whole gimmick is different scenes about the same story (which is why I think the current ride fails).

                                The existence of Star Tours as a "fictional Airline" in the Star Wars Universe is canon, it's just the present iteration of the attraction isn't. I mean logically speaking how can you call it "canon" when you're going from Naboo to Jakku, basically from Darth Vader's alive to he's dead and somehow resurrected again. It's almost like the Imagineers are mourning the loss of another motion simulator attraction up in at Universal Studios and decided to make the Starspeeder 1000 have "magical" time traveling capabilities....hmm

                                  It will likely be gone in a few years anyway along with all the other "Legends" Material.

                                    Watch in the next film they blatantly have a main character say "one galactic season, which is 4 years on earth (whatever that is), is how long we need to keep hyperspace mountain going to save the galaxy!" Nod to Chapek and Iger

                                      It's a bit strange that the Starspeeder flies into the core of the Death Star during the ride, which we never see as part of the first Death Star but do see in the second Death Star. Maybe it's the second Death Star already under construction since they take a long time to build...

                                        Anything I've read has identified it as the first Death Star.
