Disneyland Paris Star Tours

Hopefully in the future the new Star Tours 2 will come to Disneyland Paris. In the meantime, let's have a special tribute to the current version that guests can ride at Discoveryland.

The picture on the top is a Star Tours entrance concept by Eric Robison, never realised. We know that a big X Wing fighter stands at the entrance, but did you know that Imagineers once envisioned to have instead a big AT & AT snow walker?

Or even a Millenium Falcon as you can see on this painting by Tim Delaney who did also the one above. Was it Space Mountain behind, with a Death Star design?

These two rare pictures show the making at a WDI facility of the X Wing fighter, standing now at the entrance of the attraction.

This next painting by Tim Delaney is famous, but you'll find it here in a very good quality.

Talking about pre-show, here is a great picture of C3PO...

...and of Admiral Ackbar...

..and of the little robots located in the Droids room.

Two others elements of the decor, including the Starspeeder 3000 plan.

The next picture is a high-res version of a well known image showing the Starspeeder in the final battle of the ride movie.

Let's end with a gift with this high-res pic of the Starspeeder Service poster!
