Star Wars ride at Disneyland
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.
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.

It's a complete waste of money. I enjoy these movies (the same 3 as you) and the Matrix Triology, but I am not about to buy the same thing over and over again. Buy a good player like the Oppo with ABT chips inside, and you won't be wanting for anything.
Bill Gates started this crap with MS Office. I've given up on having the latest and greatest, it's nothing more than a financial colonoscopy.
That said my special edition of Aliens on DVD is a little grainy. Will I buy a Blue Ray version? Maybe when it's in the $5 bin.
