The future of Star Tours, Star Wars Launch Bay and Star Wars shows at Disney's Hollywood Studios

With the opening of Star Wars Galaxy's Edge on August 29 2019, guests at Disney's Hollywood Studios will have a land dedicated Star Wars, but how does that leave the park's other Star Wars attractions?

The answer is, at least for the foreseeable future, that they will all remain open. 

Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular, Star Wars Launch Bay and Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away are all planned to remain open in addition to the brand new Star Wars Galaxy's Edge.

We've been told that Disney sees the existing offerings as a celebration of the Star Wars universe, including the original movies and sequels. Whereas Galaxy's Edge is an all new offering where guests get to be part of a new story.

With huge crowds expected for Galaxy's Edge, the park will certainly need every inch of available capacity.

That would only make Soarin' bland, tasteless and charecterless. Better to stick with the full flavour original!

I always thought it would be cool if you land in Batuu on Star Tours and then exit to that area of the park. Like Star Tours is the bridge between the real world and a galaxy far, far away.

I don't think Star Tours should have the ending where you land in Batuu, while GE is open. It breaks the stories of both Star Tours and GE.

I like star tours and so do my kids who are both in high school. Just went to DL for the evening with coworkers who had never been on and they liked it

I personally prefer the off brand selection, Dr. Flying, it's cheaper in the long run...

You can customize your experience with Soarin' Freestyle.
