Meet the new pilot…again

Tom Fitzgerald, Executive VP & Senior Creative Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering  just posted his latest update on Star Tours “The Adventures Continue” on the Disney Parks Blog.

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!”

    Interesting twist yet Fun! Both images look rad. Thanks to WDI for the rex reassurance.

    That explains why Ace looks so CGI.

    Hmmm not so sure I like that :/ Rex and his jittery personality made Star Tours what it is. I can’t imagine 3P0 making a very entertaining pilot.
