I am a MAJOR Star Wars fan! I am not the one who will be dressing as a Star Wars character, but still I am hardcore.
For all Star Wars fans, this year will be like no other! Disney as usual will unveil its Star Wars Weekend. Even though at press time Disney has not announced the dates, we can assume that, as years past, it will be sometime in May thru June.
When Disney announces the dates, it will also announce the stars that are going to be invited to the festivities. I personally have seen Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), Jake Lloyd (Young Anakin), Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett), Temura Morrison (Jango Fett), David Prowse (Darth Vader), Ray Park (Darth Maul), and Warwick Davis (Ewok) who has been annually the host of this event. Last year marked two special occasions: The 30th Anniversary of the “Empire Strikes Back”, plus the last time everyone got the chance to ride the Star Tours (version 1.0).
However, this year George Lucas and Lucasfilm and Disney have join forces to bring us a new revamp version of this majorly loved attraction! The blogs are full of glimpses here and there of the new changes. Confirmed are the appearances of several unique cities from the Star Wars universe, plus new characters will appear during the show (hint hint, new androids!). We don’t know if C3P0 will make a cameo appearance, but everything has been hush-hush. We’ll be embarking in a new ship, the Starspeeder 1000. The Disney imaginers’ have told that they will be given an updated ride system that has high-def. video, the impressive Disney Real-D 3D screen, a top of the line motion simulator and several newly added special effects. All in all, Star Tours (version 2.0) promises to be another top awesome ride that will make everyone visits Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
