Some of the highlights from the latest blog:

  • “while AC-38 is supposed to be our pilot, by the time we actually take off, the droid sitting in the pilot’s seat will be none other than…C-3PO!”
  • “This week, our Imagineering team begins installation of the Audio-Animatronics figures into the Starspeeder cabins at Disneyland park, and next month at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.”
  • “Oh, and for all you Rex fans, don’t worry – we have a spot for him in the new show!”
