Yeah, there has been speculation of this beforehand here on the boards. Star Tours is in dire need of an update and its finally nice to hear acknowledgment from someone as high up as Lucas. If Disneyland would like not to keep seeing potential customers flock over to Universal because of Universal's superior rides and attractions then this would be a good place to start.

That post just makes mention of the Florida attraction(s). What about Disneyland? If this does happen, will it be a total revamp, including the entrance props or will it just be the film part?

I have no idea, but i will ask a friend of mine who works at Disney Land's art dept. He may know what they are planning to do. I figure that it will be the film with a partial re-working of the enterance.

Disneyland employees have been saying the ride was getting a revamp for 15 years now, I used to hear it all the time (I used to GO all the time, back when I had money for an annual pass), now I don't believe it. The ride is still one of my favorite things of all time, and I hope they keep at least one of the originals going if they do finally bother to update it.

That's because mostly the older stuff there is better, very little of it is based on a disney movie or TV show, it was all designed to be fun and stand-alone, and just like the disney company itself the execs have slowly been eroding what makes Disneyland so great by making changes and getting rid of those wonderful classics to make way for attractions that help co-sell disney movies, shows, and merchandise.

I just hope that they re-work the enterance a little. The Mon-calamarie look a little stiff in the controll room. I would love to see some other droids in the work room, I dont want the main charcters changed, but how about some droid army props. Droid decka maybe?

That could work at the Florida one where there's outside room for more displays, but I'd hate to have something like that added to the actual queue - that area is SUCH a tight theme, there'd be no room for some outside influence like a Destroyer Droid or something, it wouldn't make sense to be there. Anything they add should make sense within the make-believe world you step into the moment you enter the door, the idea is you're pretending you're taking an actual Star Tours flight, I can't see how there'd be room in that concept for Battle Droids.

They could add more promo films to the main viewer though, the ones they have are great but now there are more worlds to visit.
