C3PO to take a Starspeeder ride in Star Tours 2.0?


This past weekend there was a small gathering of Disney theme park enthusiasts in Anaheim called Mechanized Magic. Focusing on the animatronic figures used in Disney rides, the small convention was really for those who can tell the difference between and A-10 and A-100 animatronic figure. At Mechanized Magic, a MAPO (the old name for the construction arm of Imagineering) retiree mentioned that C3PO will be inside the new Starspeeders. As of right now it’s only a rumor, but it could definitely happen. This weekend, the official Destination D convention is taking place at the Disneyland Hotel and a Star Tours presentation is planned; so we may hear more news soon.
