Star Tours: The Adventures Continue at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is the second incarnation of the park’s original Star Wars-based motion simulator and debuted in 2011. For this attraction, guests board a Starspeeder 1000 piloted by C- 3PO and meet various planets, characters and scenes spanning the Skywalker saga.
Part of the appeal of this attraction is that the planets, characters, and scenes you encounter on your journey are random! Where you go and who you see could be completely different with each trip! But what planets and characters from this very, distant galaxy can you expect to find during your flight?
For Star Wars fans, it’s a question worth asking! Especially if you’ve always wanted to experience a pod race or fly on an AT-AT in Hoth or visit Coruscant. So, for the sake of science, here’s a breakdown of what scenes and characters you might experience during your flight to Star Tours: The Adventures Continue! (Attention, spoilers in advance!)
Your journey begins as a passenger aboard a Starspeeder 1000 that accidentally takes off with the C-3PO as the pilot even though he is not the official pilot. Then one of the next bad guys stops him in search of a rebellious spy who turns out to be a randomly selected guest!
