"Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Jay Rasulo announced today at the D23 Expo in Anaheim that the 'Star Tours II' attraction is coming to Disneyland and Hollywood Studios in 2011. Here is the full press release, which talks about more of what's ahead, followed by a clip of the attraction:
'Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Jay Rasulo detailed plans for future lands, attractions and adventures that will be delighting Disney guests for years to come, at the first D23 Expo. Most notable among the announcements were the confirmation of an all-new Star Tours attraction and the largest expansion in the history of the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.
'Storytelling is the DNA of Disney dreams and we're always exploring new ways to tell new stories in new places,' Rasulo told a crowd at the Anaheim Convention Center in California before taking them on a 'behind-the-magic' tour of their favorite Disney destinations.
Rasulo announced that a new 3-D version of the tremendously-popular 'Star Tours' attraction will debut at the Disneyland Resort and Disney's Hollywood Studios in 2011. Based on the iconic Lucasfilm Star Wars films, the attraction will include immersive new elements that will take guests to many familiar places in the Star Wars galaxy."
This is awesome!! However, I've never been on the original ride, so this looks like I'd better head down to Florida before it's too late. "Help me, Walt Disney. You're my only hope."
