Learn details about major additions coming to the iconic Star Wars attraction!
We have exciting news from StarWars.com. Star Tours, the iconic Star Wars theme park is about to receive an update and The Rise of Skywalker features prominently. If that wasn’t enough, Lucasfilm has confirmed the name of the new planet where the wreckage of the dreaded Death Star came to rest after the fall of the Empire in Return of the Jedi.
Here’s the official report:
Later this year, Star Tours – The Adventures Continue will go to new places in a galaxy far, far away.
As announced on the Disney Parks Blog, the iconic attraction is set to receive a major Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker update at Disneyland® Resort, Walt Disney World® Resort, Tokyo Disneyland® Park, and Disneyland® Paris on December 20, with new characters and worlds from the upcoming film.
Among the additions is Kef Bir, the ocean moon from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker; you can check out the locale as it will appear in Star Tours below:
When Star Tours opened at Disneyland in 1987, it was the beginning of a wonderful partnership between Lucasfilm and Disney Parks. When guests board Star Tours, they come face-to-face with beloved Star Wars characters like Princess Leia, Kylo Ren, Poe Dameron, BB-8, and others as they voyage to distant worlds made famous in the films. This attraction immerses you in the Star Wars mythology for an unforgettable galactic adventure.
This is exciting news. Fan speculation had hoped that the wreckage of the dreaded Death Star had crash-landed on Endor, however, this new report disproves that theory. Perhaps Kef Bir is another of Endor’s moon’s, but until official word arrives from Lucasfilm the speculation will continue until December 19th.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker unleashes the force from December 19th
