  • Star Tours Renovation?

    I have been searching old threads and haven't been able to find anything recent. So does anyone know if there is anything in the works for this ride that is long overdue for a renovation?

    Well, I heard that there will be a renovation for the 55th anniversary of Disneyland, but I'm not really sure. I've heard that they might do the ride in 3D, but then again I'm not sure.

      A chance meeting with Tony Baxter last year allowed me to ask him that and he brought up a handful of various concepts that they were considering for Star Wars 2. Other mice chatters have confirmed that there were conceptual designs hanging all over the Imagineering Headquarters in Glendale.

      Anthony Daniels has reportedly let the cat out of the bag as well that he worked on filming for Star Tours 2... (though steve sansweet denied it).

      A recent interview with Tom Fitzgerald about Star Tours revealed that he would be working on an update if it were to happen, though he didn't confirm if it was in the works or not.

      2009 seems to be the rough estimate year that has been floating around for Star Tours 2 but one won't know for sure until it happens.

      Until then, we can rest assured that they ARE indeed working on something and a sequel to the popular attraction is near.

                Good eye, Thrax! Thanks for the info!

                Once an announcement is half way made about a Star Tours
                update, can you imagine how many people will be following it's
                progress!?!?!?! I wonder if they might tie a peoplemover
                project, or placing a rocket jet type ride up high in TL, with a
                Star Tours update.
                Critter Country's a mess ev'r since the Country Bears were kicked out. Ya can't cover pooh with honey and 'spect people ta like it.

                      Howdy.

                      I think it actually says "soon Endor won't be the end all." Or at least it used to. The message has been there in some form since the soft openings in December 1986. I was there for a soft opening and I saw this for myself. I am not relying on any outside info.

                      I apologize if it seems I am only trying to correct you. That is not my intent. I just wanted to make sure that everyone knows that they have been saying "soon" for 21 + years, so that should not be used as an indication that something new is actually near.

                      Now, with all the other news I am reading in this thread it appears an update is coming soon. I would LOVE to see another party like they had back for the original opening - it rocked!

                        ::definitely knows that Datameister and MasterGracey know more than they are saying because of past posts they have made, but will respect their respect for those that may have, or may not have, shared information with them.

                        Thanks for keeping the surprises secret guys and honoring the trust you were given.


                        Honestly though, I can't wait to find out what's going on. So much potential for cool on this one.

                        Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

                            I'd be fine if they made Tomorrowland into Star Wars land.

                              As would I. Tomorrowland's original concept started to become less relevant once Epcot Center opened and we started sending people into space.

                              At least a Star Wars influenced Tomorrowland would leave people with an exciting and romantic vision of the future and the best part is the universe of Star Wars is so huge they can create original stuff that doesn't have to be tied in with the movies. Star Tours really only scratched the surface on this.
