Update on Star Tours Locations: More Planets Revealed

Earlier this week Disney teased us with a flight itinerary in Aurebesh that we cracked. They have revealed the final flight list and it appears as though the earlier one was a fake.

Endor and Alderaan have been removed from the list of planets. However, Kashyyk, Geonosis, Hoth, and Naboo have all been added. Geonosis won’t actually be visited as it was revealed that the Death Star will be in orbit and intercept the Star Tours Starspeeder 1000.

Not all the destinations will be used each and every time. It turns out that an unkown number of destinations will be combined each flight. There will be over 50 different combinations and the storyline will be different for adventure.

This personally sounds like a brilliant idea that a few other rides at the Disney Parks could benefit from. What a great reason to visit the ride over and over again. I enjoyed the original Star Tours enough to ride it everytime I visited the park. Now I will be rewarded for that with a different ride each time.

Not only are they rewarding us with a different set of visuals each ride, I’m sure there will be a different cast of heroes and villians for each combo as well. Characters were revealed a while back on the Disney Parks Blog.

Well, it wouldn’t be a Star Wars adventure without Darth Vader. The Dark Lord of the Sith will be accompanied by legions of stormtroopers and some new “skytroopers,” designed especially for our show. Boba Fett, everyone’s favorite bounty hunter, also will be after us, as well as an assortment of nasty droids and creatures.

Balancing out the villains are some classic good guys – and even a princess! Master Yoda, Admiral Ackbar and Princess Leia will appear in the show to help guide our adventures. We may even run into Chewbacca along the way!

Whether these clips combine in unique ways each time or we experience the same six videos in a different each time is yet to be determined. The ride officially opens May 20th in Orlando and June 3rd in Anaheim. The ride will use Disney 3D technology in combination with the classic flight simulator mechanics.
