    Star Tours

    I would really like to see a little update to this ride. But that pretty much goes for most of the video elements in the attractions.

    i like the ride the way it is, every time i go back on it, it still feels the same as it always had, I wouldn't really want to see any new changes, but if there happens to be any, Disney always pulls it off very well

    I do not like to repeat successes, I like to go on to other things. - Walt Disney

    At this point, Mr. Speilburg and Mr. Lucas need to start putting money where their collective mouth is. Honestly, I'm sort of hoping at this stage that it doesn't happen. I'd hate to imagine my favorite archaeologist getting the same treatment the Star Wars saga got.........

    2008 maybe the time when George Lucas does produce another film for the attraction. And the only reason why they didn't make the film back in 2000 & 2002 is because Lucas already had alot on his plate such as finishing the Star Wars saga. So if I heard correctly Indy 4 should be done by 2008 so Lucas may start filming after.

    I know what you mean. I haven't followed it as much as you probably, but in the past couple months I've heard it mentioned a lot on TV (Conan mentioned it in his monolouge recently). I don't ever remember any real mention of it back in '99 or even '02 so I was thinking maybe mentioning it on TV now was a good sign. I don't know though.

    I don't want another video cuz whenever I go on it, i end up in a ship full of people who have never been on it, and they SCREAM!!! it's hilarious!!!

    other than that, they should make a new video.
    Can't run away from Trouble, ain't no place that far.

    I think the Star Tours is in desprate need of an update.I like the idea of each ship going to a different planet because it can get that spaceport type feeling.
    May the force be with you

    Totally! You should be able to Soar over California OR Florida. Would be neat seeing all the Florida attractions you never see while blinded by the awesomeness that is Disney.





    Oh and for the Indy 4. They've been releasing photos the past few weeks and it is currently in production!!! Harrison Ford looks sooooooooo old

    "It's not the years, honey--it's the mileage."

    Yeah, I'll second that. But Karen Allen looks awesome for a woman her age.

    Still, I'm holding out for a preview. THEN I'll believe it (they've been promising Indy IV for the last fifteen years).

    Check out the videos and the pictures on the offical website (indianajones.com) Shia LaBeouf is even in it this time! (I'm assuming as Indy's son) and Ray Winstone (as Indy's partner?)
    And yes, Karen Allen looks EXACTLY like she did in Raiders. Now that's a woman that ages well!

    Principal photography began June 18, 2007!

    If this DOES get a refurb, it may take a while. I mean, look how long it took them to finally give the Haunted Mansion a refurb?

    I'm thinking about a three to five months refurb.
