This Day in Disney History, Star Tours: The Adventures Continues
Star Tours: The Adventures Continue (sometimes labeled as Star Tours 3-D or simply just Star Tours) is a 3-D motion simulator attraction based on the Star Wars film series and is the prequel to its predecessor, Star Tours.
Star Tours: The Adventures Continue replaced the original Star Tours attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disneyland and Tokyo Disneyland. The Hollywood Studios version opened May 23, 2011, with the Disneyland version opening a few weeks later on June 3 while Tokyo Disneyland’s version opened on May 7, 2013. It will open at Disneyland Paris in 2017.
This updated version features 3-D technology, multiple destinations and is set in the Star Wars universe between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, whereas the original attraction took place some time shortly after Return of the Jedi.
