First Look at New Jakku Footage in Disney Parks’ Star Tours Ride



Star Tours, for those unfamiliar, is a Disney theme-park ride that’s a 3D motion simulator through two different Star Wars planets, selected at random so that each experience is different. Hoth, Endor, Tatooine, Naboo and all the other familiar locales are available – but you won’t know which two until you ride it.

Now you can add Jakku, starting December 1st – and for the first couple of months, it will be guaranteed to be one of the two worlds on your ride, before becoming as random as the rest.

I can’t wait to get motion-sick in a whole new way. Here’s the teaser:
