From what I've seen, they've done a great job with Star Tours. Although I prefer the original version of the attraction, there's no doubt it really needed a freshen up.


Here's a vid (not the attraction).

It looks great! Can't wait to ride it.

From what i've heard the complete attraction is in French. Don't know if it will stay that way. But it seems to be an odd choice and I hope the idea of doing this won't spread to other attractions.

I have to say I don't have much of an issue with this. It's a French park and the percentage of UK visitors seems to have declined in recent years. The park caters for English speakers really well but it doesn't bother me is some attractions are purely in French - more motivation to keep learning the language for me!

DLP always did a wonderful job combining English and French in a way so everybody with a basic understanding of the language could follow the storyline. It worked for almost 25 years. So why the sudden change?

Btw, I'm Dutch and speak 4 languages. French being one of them  ;)

From the trailer shown the information titles are in English too. I can't imagine them having one language only in any show so I wouldn't worry.

Just returned from an absence and I am really excited for Star Tours to reopen it's services once more in Paris. I mean 3 other Spaceports are already offering services to Spaceport THX1138 (consult this http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Star_Tours:_The_Adventures_Continue for more info) on Planet Earth. One thing I would absolutely LOVE is for DLP to do an opening video much-like Disneyland Resort did when the first Adventures Continues opened. Darth Vader goes to Disneyland. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4_dZPVg8KI

Anywho I look forward to many flights with Star Tours this summer.
