    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.

              Well, the first Death Star is also complete when we see it as well.

                At the end scene of The Revenge of the Sith (I believe), Vader and Tarken are standing on the bridge of a star destroyer, looking upon the incomplete, original Death Star.

                  It really doesn't matter, Star Tours Versions 1 and 2 are not canon and thus don't count and within a few years both will be gone and the new rides that actually count will be in Star Wars Land.

                    This is exactly what I mean. We are definitely time traveling. Jakku w/ Finn can't exist if we get the Yoda transmission... Yoda passed away long before Finn took the helm of the Falcon. We can't be stopped by Vader either if we get the Jakku scene as he's supposed to be dead per Return of the Jedi. Hoth and Naboo's scenes can't exist in the same ride either as AT-AT's didn't look like that back with the Star Fighters. etc etc etc.

                    Do I wish they would have paid more attention to the storylines? Yes. Does it mean I'll never ride? No... I just accept that it's not canon and just a fun ride and would have limited the randomness.

                      I just want a Starspeeder 3000 to show up in a movie down the line. We've already had the RX droid made canon thanks to Star Wars Rebels.

                        The title of this thread is misleading. The factoid has been the same for quite a few days, now. I feel robbed.
