Disney knows that by doing this, they will unleash the wrath of the fanboys onto themselves if they don’t have the ride open by Dec 31, right? Because I think that if they don’t have this open, there are going to be a lot of angry storm troopers standing outside of Star Tours on January 1st…

You know… I’ve had about enough podracing for a lifetime. I think one pod race is too much. I liked the original Star Tours because it wasn’t a clip show of the film, retreading the exact same territory, it had its own little angle and added some depth that you didn’t need to be a Star Wars fan to appreciate but was welcome if you were. I have my doubts about the new take.

It will be coming to both Walt Disney World and Disneyland. It was left out of the presentation but was confirmed later.
