Star Tours is a motion simulator attraction based on the Star Wars universe created by George Lucas. It was first launched at Disneyland in 1987 as a creative collaboration between Disney Imagineers and George Lucas with Industrial Light and Magic.

Fans have been following the development of what was originally termed “Star Tours II” since it was announced by George Lucas at Celebration III in 2005. According to the Disney Parks Blog: “Star Tours: The Adventures Continue will feature new droids, a new Starspeeder, new destinations and even a new pilot.”

In addition, the attraction is also said to be an immersive 3D experience. More details will come out about the new Star Tours as time progresses.
