Rise of Skywalker Being Added To Disney's Star Wars Ride
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters on December 20.
It was already going to be a very exciting December for Star Wars fans. The final entry in the Skywalker Saga--The Rise of Skywalker--will arrive in theaters, wrapping up the nine-film epic that began with 1977's A New Hope. That's not all the Star Wars fans will have the opportunity to experience, though.
Disney has announced that the Star Tours attraction at Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Tokyo Disney, and Disneyland Paris will all be updated on December 20--the same day the film opens--to include The Rise of Skywalker into the story.
"In the trailers for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, you caught glimpses of the ocean moon Kef Bir," a post on the Disney Parks blog reads. "All I can say at this point is that Starspeeders will be heading there soon."
While we don't know too much about Kef Bir at this point, it has been featured prominently in the trailers, including a shot of Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) battling each other on it. It was also previously revealed that the new character Jannah (Naomi Ackie) calls it home.
This isn't the first time Star Tours has been updated since it relaunched as Star Tours: The Adventure Continues in 2011. The most recent addition was a visit to Batuu, the planet that the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge themed land is set on.
For those that are going to want even more from their Star Wars experience in December, there's one more theme park addition you might be interested in. Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, the major ride attraction at Galaxy's Edge, opens at Walt Disney World on December 5. The ride then launched at Disneyland's Galaxy's Edge on January 17.
