StarSpeeder 1000Edit

Endorexpress.net has a hi-res detail showing that the vehicle is a StarSpeeder 1000, and not the 3000. -- Kaal 23:48, September 15, 2009 (UTC)

  • I have yet to see proper attribution for that image. -- Darth Culator (Talk) 00:36, September 16, 2009 (UTC)
    • Not to mention the official SW.com site states it is a 3000. We all know errors are made all the time there, but I'll take SW.com stating it's a Starspeede 3000 over an unofficial site's claim that it's a 1000. - JMAS Hey, it's me! 01:16, September 16, 2009 (UTC)
  • Endorexpress' pic seems not to have been upscaled, but I wonder where they get it. Well, I understand and agree that it's not an 'official' info for now. -- Kaal 12:01, September 16, 2009 (UTC)
    • According to one of the contributors to EndorExpress, that image was provided to them by Disney. The new link that was just added to this page is to another site who got it the same way. I think it's okay to use the concept, as long as it's tagged as ambiguous or still in production. --JMM 18:18, November 19, 2009 (UTC)

Concept art Edit

About midway down the page on this link is some photos of concept art for Star Tours II. It shows a model of the Starspeeder 1000, and some concept art of a droid resembling an RX-unit. If anyone thinks that they can use this to help the article, go ahead!http://micechat.com/forums/blogs/dateline-disneyland/1305-holidays-here-california-adventure-construction-fighting-flu-more.html Dr. Kermit(Complain.) 03:05, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

Rename Edit

Official name for the new version is now Star Tours: The Adventures Continue. A move should probably be initiated in response. --FigmentJedi 01:39, August 16, 2010 (UTC)

  • I'm not sure we really know this is the name of the ride. "The Adventures Continue" could just be their slogan for advertising the ride. Until someone actually says that's a title, I'd say leave it as is. --JMM 03:15, August 16, 2010 (UTC)

AceEdit

I feel bad that Ace is gonna replace Rex. Angie Y. 21:20, September 25, 2010 (UTC)

54?Edit

Are there still going to be 54 destinations or did they chop it down? Angie Y. 00:52, April 18, 2011 (UTC)

No, it's six destinations, but 54 combinations involving those six. --FigmentJedi 00:31, April 27, 2011 (UTC)

Non-Canonical? Edit

So the first reports of the ride are coming in from various sources, and it seems the ride does not take place in main continuity. One person described a battle of Coruscant ROTS section immediately followed by a Battle of Hoth section. Sure, you could say 'that was a SECOND battle of Coruscant, with old ships for some convoluted reason' But find a way to make this work; you fly next to Anakin's pod racer. and in the beginning, there's a chance of encountering Darth Vader. That is completely unfixably anachronistic. I think it's time to give up on saying this takes place in between films (although it could have worked, dammit) and consider it completely non-canon. --Littleloup 22:05, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

  • I think the way to look at this ride as far as canon goes is the same way we look at the different video games. Something LIKE this happened, but there's no specific official version. The Hoth and Coruscant stuff is definitely a problem, but Anakin's podracer could be being piloted by anyone. :) And hey, the first Star Tours is canon despite "Death Star III". So it's unlikely this new ride is canon but not impossible. --JMM 12:32, May 17, 2011 (UTC)
  • actually this ride fits more into the canon the the last one but only if its one path. Or I say ending. Obviously the Hoth Battle Scene, the Coracuant and Naboo scenes don't fit in well but the Kasshyyk, Tatonie, and Death Star ones do fit into the timeline. --DarthJon (talk) 14:58, August 13, 2013 (UTC)

Opening crawl Edit

I captured the opening crawl from Disney's webcast of the grand opening. It reveals a couple of backstory plot points around the founding of the company and its possible ties to the Rebellion -- and how Threepio and Artoo came to be involved. Would this be an appropriate addition to the page? Powers 14:55, May 20, 2011 (UTC)

  • That would definitely appropriate. Maybe the entire crawl could be added the same way it's on some film and video game pages. Maybe adding a note that the crawl was from the grand opening, since it's not part of the attraction. A link to a source would be nice, but since it was just shown online a short time ago, I'm sure it's not out there yet. --JMM 15:21, May 20, 2011 (UTC)
    • I've gotten a look at the crawl, too, so I can add it myself. --JMM 16:02, May 20, 2011 (UTC)
    • Done. --JMM 18:31, May 20, 2011 (UTC)

54 Combinations Edit

It seems to me that Disney doesn't really have 54 seperate videos of Star Tours to show, rather they only have 11 (2 beginnings, 6 planets, and 3 messages). Is it possible that during the ride, a computer might randomly choose the segments throughout the ride? If this is true then it may or won't ever be possible to see all 54 combinations, ever. Since there aren't really 54 videos recorded, only 54 POSSIBLE combinations, which means that since everything is random on which destinations are choosed, some combinations might never be shown or seen, although they are possible. However this is just my theory. 24.199.22.34 22:00, May 24, 2011 (UTC)

  • If the sequence randomizer works anything like an mp3 playlist, probability states they should have shown the 54th combination sometime near the end of the first week of the ride's run, though this may have been accomplished sooner depending on the actual algorithm. Never mind the other 34 thousand chances to run through the combinations it will have in its first year. DD97Which bear is best? 05:06, December 9, 2011 (UTC)

Kashyyyk and Tatooine scenarios. Edit

Hi.

I was wondering if we should make articles depicting the Kashyyyk and Tatooine scenarios. The Tatooine one is already under Boonta Eve Classic, but I wasn't sure whether to leave it in the article in general, or if I should create a separate Boonta Eve Classic article citing that specific incident, similar to the Boonta Eve Classic (32 BBY). As for the Kashyyyk thing, I wasn't sure whether it should be included or not. I don't know much of the scenario, but the closest thing to a battle is Chewbacca (or at least a similar Wookiee) being chased by speeder bikes on Kashyyyk, and I wasn't sure if that was enough. I don't want to unknowingly do a repeat of the massacre on the House Palpatine's star yacht article or the Dagobah training (ie, create an event article that wasn't even remotely necessary anyway). I placed the Hoth scenario in Battle of Hoth (0 BBY), largely because that was the closest one to the implied time period of the ride. Weedle McHairybug (talk) 19:06, January 12, 2013 (UTC)

Chewbacca? Edit

Hi.

About the Kashyyyk clip, how do we know it's Chewbacca and not another Wookiee that's being chased by scout troopers and eventually is sent flying into the cockpit? I'm asking because the article claims that's Chewbacca. Weedle McHairybug (talk) 11:57, January 16, 2013 (UTC)

  • He's not named in the ride itself, but Disney's promotional material says it's Chewbacca. --JMM (talk) 13:26, January 16, 2013 (UTC)
    • Okay, good enough for me. Heh, guess Chewbacca must have taken the day off from being Han Solo's co-pilot, or Han and Chewie are visiting the latter's relatives. BTW, speaking of which, was the Gungan driving the Bongo who commnunicated with the StarSpeeder 1000 vessel during the Naboo segment Jar Jar or yet another unidentified character? Weedle McHairybug (talk) 01:04, January 18, 2013 (UTC)
      • I believe Jar Jar appears to wave and say hello, swimming, when you first go underwater. The Gungan who contacts the ship from the submarine is unidentified, though I think it sounds like Captain Tarpals, but that's not suggested anywhere. Plus, Tarpals died during the Clone Wars. --JMM (talk) 13:50, January 18, 2013 (UTC)
        • Well, since the driver is unidentified, I'll make an article on that driver soon. Depending on whether the Gungan that waves at the Star Tours is indeed IDed as Jar-Jar in promotional materials, we might need to add this to Jar-Jar's article.

New Jakku sequence Edit

Got some early press review of the new Jakku sequence they've added to the attraction for the Season of the Force event to hype THe Force Awakens. http://www.ocregister.com/articles/star-691906-force-ride.html Just put info on the TFA character involvement into non-canon sections of their respective articles? --FigmentJedi (talk) 00:34, November 14, 2015 (UTC)

Removing "Legends" tags, etc Edit

References to Legends has been removed, but does including some elements from The Force Awakens actually mean there's canon elements somehow? I would consider this all to be Legends since it was considering non-canon originally. One small addition of something new shouldn't really make a difference, should it? --JMM (talk) 20:14, December 24, 2015 (UTC)

  • Was the entirety of it actually considered non-canon? I do see sections of the article marked as non-canon, but it doesn't have a tag at the top saying "non-canon," as it normally would if the entirety is non-canon. I would not consider it to be all "Legends," because "Legends" is a marketing term essentially that refers to material from the old Expanded Universe. To apply the term "Legends" to material originating from Star Wars: The Force Awakens is patently wrong. ProfessorTofty (talk) 20:46, December 24, 2015 (UTC)
    • This new version of Star Tours debuted prior to the announcement of the new Canon/Legends system, which would place it in the category of Expanded Universe. After the new system came into play, we're only considering new stories and those actually designated canon to be, canon. Everything else is Legends unless LFL tells us otherwise. And since the entire setting of the ride in the Rebel Alliance era, having TFA-era Finn appear makes for questionable continuity. Granted, this is definitely a very special case! A pre-Legends work edited while still in release to include something from the new canon. It's kind of confusing, so I'm not sure who's right here. But to me, if it debuted as Expanded Universe, one single element from the new movies being added in shouldn't change it to canon. --JMM (talk) 18:20, December 27, 2015 (UTC)
      • We really shouldn't be treating Star Tours as canon or Legends. It's clearly not meant to be part of any real continuity. It's a theme park ride, not a storyline. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 20:00, December 27, 2015 (UTC)
        • Except when it is referenced elsewhere. It happened in the past.
          • Right. It's been seen as more than a theme park ride for years now. There's a number of references to it out there. With its multiple variations, it's as least as valid as many video games. --JMM (talk) 21:18, December 27, 2015 (UTC)
          • Is there any work covered on this site that isn't placed in any category? Isn't it all, Canon, Legends, or "Non-canon for Legends"? --JMM (talk) 21:20, December 27, 2015 (UTC)
            • Other works may reference it, but that doesn't mean that Star Tours itself has to be labeled as any particular continuity. The fact that TFA elements are being included without regard to continuity is pretty illustrative of the fact that it's not meant to be an actual story anymore. It's just a theme park ride. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 21:34, December 27, 2015 (UTC)
