Star Tours to Close Early For Renovations

But Disney announced today that the ride will close July 27 for almost a year. Originally, the ride was scheduled for rehab in October.
The ride, as we know now, was not to be shut down forever, just changed as we know it--both Disney World and Disneyland would soon see some major revamping, including a 3D feature and the incorporation of the (bleh) prequels. Instead of riding on a daily express tourist's ship to Endor, "guests aboard Starspeeders will join in a high-speed pod race through the desert canyons of Tatooine," a la The Phantom Menace (bleh) promises Disney.
A video of what's to come, that we also previously posted back in September:
Though Disney World has a farewell event scheduled for their Star Tours attraction, Disneyland has, unfortunately, not announced anything similar.
Star Tours at Disneyland Park will be closing July 27.
We'll miss the RX-24 pilot, Rex, the most. Sad face.
