New Star Wars The Force Awakens sequence to soft open at Star Tours next week

Nov 12, 2015 in "Star Tours - The Adventures Continue"

The new Star Tours sequence inspired by the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens is expected to soft open on November 16 2015 at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

During the first few months, every ride will feature the new sequence, but later it will join the list of possible sequences selected randomly during each ride.

As with all soft openings, it may be cancelled or stopped at anytime. The official opening for the new sequence is on December 1 2015. 

Check out the video below for a sneak peek preview of the new Star Tours: The Adventures Continue sequence.

I was just on Star Tours and the first scene was the pod racers on Tatooine and the transmission was from Yoda, so no more locked-in Jakku!

Of course it got boring for those who rode it more than a couple of times. I suspect most in WDW hadn't. My point was if it makes sense for DL to do it at all, it's easily justifiable for WDW to do it for longer since they cater to people who aren't there week after week, unlike Disneyland, and thus haven't seen the new sequence even months after its debut. If anything, Disneyland's was more egregious since, again, it appeals more to locals. They should have ended it after a couple of weeks. Of course, I personally wish neither park did it at all since I do reride it being a DL APer, but the decision as to why they ran it longer isn't confusing Regardless, it's kind of telling how some get bored of this one so easily when the original Star Tours was endlessly rerideable--at least for me. Loved that rided

The Rogue One scenes will be included in the Star Tours: Tour of the Outer Rim Dessert Party upcharge event I'm sure ;)

No because that would make sense

Not at all. After two rides it got boring.

It makes sense for WDW to run it longer since they appeal more to tourists who haven't seen it yet, as opposed to DL where like half the people have seen it after a week :P

About damn time. I was starting to go crazy with how long it's been locked on the EpVII stuff. The ride is so simple to change that those additions were put in pretty much over night after already being tested elsewhere. It's like someone forgot to flip a switch for all these months.

According to the site that cannot be named, we'll be getting randomization in HS again starting December 18th :D We'll no longer be locked-in to Jakku and BB-8

Are they going to add a Rogue One scene?
