Ahsoka, Andor, Mandalorian Coming to Star Tours

For most Disney guests, Star Tours is the attraction they ride when they’re tired of waiting in long lines for Rise of the Resistance and Slinky Dog Dash. I’m a Star Wars geek, so it’s more than a consolation ride for me. And it’s about to get even better. Today, Disney announced that characters and locations from Disney+’s Ahsoka, Andor, and Mandalorian series are coming to Star Tours on April 5. Guests in Disney World, Disneyland, and Disneyland Paris will be able to see the updated footage.

Star Tours now has over 250 possible storylines, one of them including a visit to Peridea from the Ahsoka series. Also, we’ll be flying with Purrgil (space whales)!

Thanks to Scott Gustin for the footage.

Many thought that Star Tours’ days were numbered once Galaxy’s Edge opened. I’m glad to see that didn’t happen. Sure, it’s a little odd to have a Star Wars attraction outside the themed land, but that doesn’t bother me. It’s a throwback ride that’s being maintained and upgraded. Give me more of that, please!

Speaking of upgrades, we’re all a little bored stealing coaxium on every Smugglers Run mission. I’d love to see the Star Tours model be applied to that attraction. Can you imagine flying the Millennium Falcon into Endor’s Death Star and blowing it up? Would it fit into the Batuu universe and timeline? Absolutely not. And not a single Star Wars fan would care.
