May 7, 2013 – The Attraction Star Tours: The Adventures Continue Opens in Tokyo Disneyland
On May 7, 2013, the revamped version of the attraction Star Tours, now known as Star Tours: The Adventures Continue opened in Tokyo Disneyland’s Tomorrowland. Incorporating elements from the three prequel films, the attraction is set between the film Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope. It is similar to the attractions of the same name that opened in 2011 in the American Disney parks. Guests are given a random journey once they board the ride, with the system picking one of 54 routes. This new attraction also included a new 3D element, adding to the excitement of the attraction. It was estimated that about 7 billion yen was invested in the revamp of the attraction. Like many film attractions in the park, the voyage was dubbed in Japanese, with Hiroshi Iwasaki voicing C-3PO and Toru Ohira voicing Darth Vader.
