Today on the Disney Parks Blog, Imagineer Tom Fitzgerald revealed new information about which Star Wars characters guests can expect to see when the Star Tours ride reopens as Star Tours: The Adventures Continue in May.
Familiar faces will include C-3PO, R2-D2, Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Admiral Ackbar, Yoda, and stormtroopers. More specifically, Fitzgerald writes, “Princess Leia will appear in the show to help guide our adventures.” Perhaps via hologram? We’ll see.
New to the Star Wars universe will be “skytroopers” along with plenty of “droids and creatures.” Other new characters will include AC-38 (Ace), a new pilot, as well as Spokesbot Aly San San.
Star Tours: The Adventures Continue will premiere at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on May 20, 2011, followed by opening at Disneyland in California in June.
