Star Wars ride at Disneyland  (Source: SlashFilm)
Disneyland tweaks Star Wars ride for 3D fun

Star Wars is one of the most popular science fiction franchises ever created and goes back to the days of many geeks' youth. The newer flicks are not as cool by some standards as the original trilogy, but they are still really cool.

A while back, it was announced that the Star Wars franchise would be coming to Blu-ray for the first time in September of 2011. We didn't get an exact launch date for the flicks when they were first announced, but that official date has now surfaced. LucasFilm has announced that September 27, 2011 is the day the Blu-ray versions of all of the Star Wars films will hit stores. The flicks will sell like crazy.

SlashFilm also reports that work is underway at the Disneyland Resort that will see the Star Tours: The Adventure Continues ride get a 3D update with some new action and characters. The ride is set after the events of Revenge of the Sith and before the first of the original trilogy.

Riders will get to see characters from the original trilogy and the new films during the ride and C-3PO will be at the controls of the virtual spaceship the passengers are in on the ride. The new attraction will also take its riders to different parts of the Star Wars universe for the first time. I now know where my summer vacation will be.

One of the action sequences in the attraction will have the riders chased by Boba Fett with Admiral Ackbar communicating with the ride via hologram. Disney will not confirm or deny many of the details about where the ride will take people in the Star Wars universe.

Agreed. The prequals were horribly acted, compared to the original trilogy. Personally, my favorite Star Wars film is Return of the Jedi, but that's just me. Ever since the inclusion of CGI in films, acting has taken a hellish turn for the worst. Granted, there are a few films, (namely Avatar and Jurassic Park) that we stand-outs, but other than that, just so-so ho-hum acting from actors. Let's go back to 80's films, since they didn't have IL&M at the time, and see the difference in acting then. The difference is like night and day.

That's what happens when you go cheap and move production and casting out of the UK, and go down-under. Yes, I'm from the UK, but I have always felt that part of what made the original Star Wars films seem as good as they were was down to the quality supporting cast, as well as getting lucky with casting Harrison Ford as Han.

it doesn't matter if you don't like the prequels. They weren't meant for you. Lucas recruited a new generation of Star Wars fans, who eagerly buy up Clone Wars toys and video games. He's the richest man in Hollywood not from ticket sales, but from merchandising.

If you were 6 years old when you saw Episode 1, you'd be cheering for Jar Jar right now.
