We knew it was coming, but a new scene from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has been added to the Star Tours ride sooner than expected.
A new destination from the upcoming Star Wars film has been added to Star Tours – The Adventures Continue at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, taking guests to a location based on the new film. The scene is featured in every ride right now, but after a couple of months, will be put into the random generator of scenes. Disney released a preview of the new adventure in the video below. Scroll all the way to the bottom for a spoiler filled description of the whole scene.
STAR TOURS SPOILER WARNING:
The new “The Force Awakens” scene in Star Tours is the first planet you arrive to on the ride. Here’s a full description for those who won’t get a chance to ride it themselves anytime soon.
As you arrive on Jakku, an explosion happens in a wrecked Star Destroyer field. The Millennium Falcon appears in front of you, with TIE Fighters chasing it. Finn (John Boyega), a new character from The Force Awakens, appears on the video screen asking what Star Tours is doing there. After a little bit of following the Falcon and avoiding laser blasts, you start to crash land into the interior of a wrecked Star Destroyer. Once stopped inside, several characters that seem to be scavengers start inspecting the Star Tours StarsSpeeder and taking parts. After a second, you take off into space and the scene is over.
It’s immediately followed by a new transmission scene featuring BB-8. BB-8 tells us, through dialogue C-3PO translates, he has special information that must be delivered. C-3PO refuses several times, but R2-D2 then sends us to our next destination.
The ride then randomly generates the next scene amount the many that have already been part of the ride.
