As found on the Disneyland site, Star Tours was first brought to life on January 9, 1987, by George Lucas and Walt Disney Imagineering. Located in Tomorrowland, the original version of the ride blasted off to Endor. Since then numerous other destinations have been traveled to and in 2011 3D technology was added. The beloved attraction features state-of-the-art technology including a flight simulator, digital 3D video, Audio-Animatronics characters and “in-cockpit” special effects and music. The ride is suggested for kids, tweens, teens, and adults, and requires passengers be at least 40″ (102cm) tall.
Celebrate 35 Years of Disney and Star Wars history, and possibly a glimpse of the future to come, at D23’s “35 Years of Star Tours Adventures” panel this Friday, May 27, 2022, at 5:00 pm on the Galaxy Stage at Star Wars Celebration.
