George Lucas Visits Disneyland’s Revised ‘Star Tours’ Attraction
  |  @   |  

Star Wars creator George Lucas visited Disneyland Park in California today, giving a thumbs up on the progress being made on the theme park’s newly revised Star Tours attraction.

The picture above is of Lucas posing with the audio-animatronics figure of C-3PO in the motion-simulated ride’s Starspeeder 1000 cockpit. Lucas, along with Star Wars producer Rick McCallum, took some test runs on the ride aboard the Starspeeder, which will now “travel” to several Star Wars worlds.

Star Tours, which has been rechristened Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, will reopen at both Disneyland and Orlando’s Hollywood Studios at Disney World on May 20, 2011.
