Disneyland’s ‘Star Tours 3D’ Opens Today: Time To Ditch Work http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/disneylands-star-tours-3d-opens-today-time-to-ditch-work/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/disneylands-star-tours-3d-opens-today-time-to-ditch-work/#comments Fri, 20 May 2011 20:32:50 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=Video&p=213075 The ride has 52 different simulations, and many of them are not prequels-based.

Admiral Ackbar‘s status in the Star Wars universe has risen from cult character to corporate spokesman. Witness the above promo for the newly revamped Star Tours 3D ride at Disneyland, opening today. The fishy-looking admiral is the star of the spot, with Darth Vader as kind of his sidekick. Darth Vader: Admiral Ackbar’s Sidekick. I’m trying to comprehend the crazy awesome ridiculousness of that, but I don’t think I have enough midichlorians.

The new prequel to the original Star Tours has 52 different simulations, and many of them are not prequels-based. In the second video, you see some of the possible outcomes, like ending up face-to-ship with Vader. That opportunity is worth a little motion sickness, methinks. Of course, if I waited for 2 hours to ride it and ended up in Naboo, I’d be pretty pissed.

This ride takes place between Episode III and IV, with C3p0 taking over piloting duties for the Paul Reubens voiced REX, but don’t fear Disney nerds. You can visit with the bumbling bot in “Droid Customs” before the ride, getting used to his programming for the first time, I assume. (io9)

New ‘Star Wars’ Disneyland Ride Has Full Intention Of Being Not Awful http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/new-star-wars-disneyland-ride-has-full-intention-of-being-not-awful/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/new-star-wars-disneyland-ride-has-full-intention-of-being-not-awful/#comments Fri, 21 Jan 2011 02:05:07 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=21206 George Lucas is re-making the classic 'Star Tours' Disneyland ride and re-releasing the whole 'Star Wars' series on Blu-Ray. Is there anything he won't "re-"?

George Lucas in the master at taking something you love and making it somewhat worse. Whether it’s adding a shitty, unnecessary CG Jabba to A New Hope or taking a galactic alien dump on the Indiana Jones series, Lucas won’t leave the classics alone. Which is why we’re kind of horrified to announce that Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, the newly redone 3D version of the classic Star Tours motion ride (which starred Paul Reubens as a robot pilot) opens May 20th.

So how involved was “Prequel Era” George Lucas in Star Tours 2.0? Disney Imagineers had to put their proposed story and new pilot character Ace into the garbage compactor when they “decided to take the story in a very different direction” after having “discussions with George Lucas.” Uh oh. Also, get ready to visit the beloved Geonosians and Naboo citizens! We can only hope Jar Jar makes a long, insufferable cameo.

However, it’s not all bad news. We understand C3PO will be the new pilot. Also, your ship gets chased by Boba Fett, and a hologram of Admiral Ackbar appears at one point — to exclaim something about “traps,” we presume.

In other Star Wars news, the complete Blu-Ray collection of all 6 movies comes out on September 27th for $139.99. The set includes top picture quality and 30 hours of bonus features. Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter how good the picture looks if what I’m watching is Han not shooting first. (/Film)
