Happy 28th to Star Tours!

January 9, 1987 the original Star Tours opened in Disneyland. We thought we would celebrate the occasion with a look back at some of our interviews with those who worked on bringing the famous Star Wars attraction to life.

Happy 28th to Star Tours!

First of all, we talk to ILM Legend Dennis Murren, who directed most of the ride.
