Since I haven’t been to Disneyland in five years, I kind of went on a nostaligia binge and tried to find as many Star tours videos and information as possible (although none of the videos feature the little video-message screen on the right. Someone please get on this, stat) This is the highest-quality video out there, as far as I know. If you’ve never been on it, imagine that someone is shaking your chair, kids are screaming, and there’s a robot voiced by Pee-Wee Herman in front of you. I also found this great fansite dedicated to Star Tours and they have a transcript of the whole damn thing. Before this I never understood why in the world we were suddenly blowing up the Death Star. Turns out it’s because one of the X-wing guys tells Red 24 to cover him and the robot pilot, RX-24, mistakes it for his own name. NOW IT MAKES SENSE.
I was livid when I heard about the new Star Tours, but after thinking about it over the past couple weeks, I’m kind of cautiously optimistic about it. I mean, it can’t all be podracing right? Who knows, maybe it won’t suck??
IN MY DAY ROBOTS WERE CALLED ROBOTS, NOT THIS P.C. “DROID” BULLSHIT
