WDWNT Reporter Zach Larson visited Disney’s Hollywood Studios back on October 14th, so without any further ado, here are the photos he took: I miss seeing Sounds Dangerous down there…
Imagineer Tom Fitzgerald has posted another Star Tours update on the Disney Parks Blog: Things are very busy in the world of Star Tours, both here in California and in Florida as well! A few weeks ago I shared a first look at two new characters joining Star Tours, and today, I want to take you behind the scenes and show you what we were working on back in April 2009. We occupied a large soundstage in Hollywood to film a key sequence of the new show. Anthony Daniels flew in from London to bring C-3PO to life on the stage, as well as workshop the script with our writer Steve Spiegel. I spoke with Anthony Daniels the other day about what it [...]

From the Disney Parks Blog: Since everything we do at Imagineering starts with the story, it probably comes as no surprise that one of the first things we set out to do with the new Star Tours show was to figure out when our story should take place within the Star Wars timeline. The existing Star Tours show we internally refer to as “6.5,” since it takes place time-wise after Episode VI Return of the Jedi.

September 7th finally arrived much to the dismay of many fans of the original Star Tours attraction that has been operating at Disney’s Hollywood Studios since late-1989. The classic simulator had one last flight for select D23 members that evening, and Inside the Magic has terrific coverage of the festivities. I think you’ll enjoy this video of Star Tours final flight at the Walt Disney World Resort:
While attending Disney’s Pin Celebration – Trade City U.S.A. last weekend, WDWNT Network staff member Cody Smith took a picture of an interesting “Disney Robots” pin set that will be released at the Disneyland “Sci-Fi Academy” pin event next year: The center robot is labeled as originating from Star Tours in 2011. If that is any indication, ALY SAN SAN will be a flight attendant droid when Star Tours re-opens at Disneyland and Walt Disney World next year. This droid may even be the female voice announcing the arrival of the Star Speeder 1000 on the special preview vehicle toy that was released at Star Wars Celebration V in August. Whether the droid will be represented in audio-animatronics or simply [...]
