Disney World has recently been making huge changes to their parks and surrounding properties. In addition to shutting down iconic rides and shows to make room for bigger and better things, they’ve also updated some of their older rides to keep up with current technology.
The original Star Tours ride transformed into Star Tours: The Adventures Continue and was upgraded from film to digital projections. The idea is that the digital projections will easily allow them to add scenes to the ride once new Star Wars films are released.
Following the release of the last and final trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi earlier this month, it has been confirmed that there is a new scene being added to the ride at both Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios on November 17, then in Disneyland Paris on November 22 and Tokyo Disneyland on December 15.
The scene will take place on the dry, desert planet of Crait that will be introduced in the new Star Wars film.
