    Star Tours Refurb- It's Official!

    Hey Gang!

    So there have been rumors over the past number of years that Star Tours was going to be refurb'ed. According to the /Film website, it's finally happening! Lucas is filming a new 3d version as we sit here!! Apologies if this was posted elsewhere- I searched, but didn't find it. Reactions? Is this what you all had in mind? I'm personally excited this is still themed around the original trilogy and boba fett!

    For some reason, it won't let me post a link... but just do a google search for "slashfilm secret star wars production shooting in hollywood" and you'll get the article.

    Thanks!

    Yeah. It sounds more like a rumor with no foundations.

    Yeah, you guys are definitely right! I was so excited about the news that they were filming new scenes for the ride, that I went alittle far with the title. Still great news!

    I'll have to listen to Lou's podcast again but he covered this. I believe I heard that Star Tours was getting refurbed and the new one will be a different experience each time. I was in and out of the office so there's a chance I missed some important info.

    Lou did speak about it, but still nothing has been confirmed by anyone official that I have seen.

    The post referenced is from May 1st, and has been discussed on various sites. My own thoughts is that the supposed scenes being filmed didn't seem to fit in something for a Star Tours attraction.

    Good. I always go straight to the store instead. I just wish everybody didn't get sick on this ride.
