Star Wars: The Force Awakens Scenes Now Available to Guests on Star Tours: The Adventures Continue

139

As previously reported, the new Star Tours: The Adventures Continue scenes based on Star Wars: The Force Awakens soft opened to guests today.

Previously Star Tours: The Adventures Continue featured a randomization of scenes that allowed for 54 different possible ride combinations. For the first few months following the debut of the new scenes that variability of some scenes will be reduced, but smaller variations in each scene will still result in numerous different ride combinations. It is unclear how many different combinations will ultimately be available, as each destination appears to have alternative versions. It's conceivable that there are over 1000 different ride variations.

SPOILER ALERT

Guests experiencing the ride now will see slight changes to the first scene of the attraction. Guests will experience one of three different options (previously there were only two) for the Identification of the Rebel Spy. The new scene features Boba Fett along with Darth Vader.

The second scene previously featured three different options for the first destination of the Starspeeder 1000, however for the short term this scene will be guaranteed for all guests to be a new scene from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The scene begins as the ship approaches the desert planet Jakku. As the ship skims the surface it narrowly misses an explosion as Finn (John Boyega's character from Star Wars: The Force Awakens) asks, "Star Tours what are you doing here?" The ship follows behind the Millennium Falcon in the middle of a fight with Tie Fighters. The ship continues to dodge explosions as the Millennium Falcon weaves in and around the destruction ahead. The scene continues into the crashed Star Destroyer where Rey (Daisy Ridley's character from Star Wars: The Force Awakens) is seen climbing a rope. The Starspeeder flies out of the crashed Star Destroyer and ultimately receives a transmission.

The third scene previously feature three different options for "transmissions" to the Starspeeder 1000, however similar to the previous scene, this will be replaced by a single option from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. BB-8: The BB-8 droid appears on screen with a transmission:

C-3PO: A transmission? BB-8 What are you doing here?
BB-8: (Droid speak)
C-3PO: Mission… what mission?
BB-8: (Droid speak)
C-3PO: He says he has vital information to deliver and needs our help.
BB-8: (Droid speak)
C-3PO: But we're not going on any mission, it's bound to be dangerous.
R2-D2: (Droid speak)

C-3PO: R2, we are not going.
BB-8 (Droid speak)
C-3PO: Good luck? Wait! Wait! Where are you going?

Following this scene, the fourth scene proceeds as normal with changes to each of these scenes as well. Guests will experience one of three second destinations before the attraction ends. It appears that each scene offers additional subtle changes that are also random. An example includes:

  • Alternative Naboo scene – instead of crashing at the end, the Starspeeder stops just short and paint splatters across the windshield.
