Anthony Daniels, who reprises his role as C-3PO for Disney's Star Tours: The Adventures Continue ride, recently spoke to The Los Angeles Times about his work on the project and what Disney park-goers can expect when the ride debuts.
Here's a snippet from the interview:
“Threepio is the pilot, and it’s huge for me,” the 65-year-old native of Salisbury, England, said. Senior Creative Executive of Walt Disney Imagineering “Tom Fitzgerald, who sold me the concept [of the first Star Tours attraction] 20-some years ago, sat across a desk and acted out the whole ride for me — he’s that kind of guy and just one of my favorite people. He came to England about two years ago, and we were sitting there having drinks when he said, ‘I want to tell you about the new Star Tours,’ ” Daniels recounted as he walked through the Hollywood Bowl on Wednesday.
Daniels also advised riders to watch the monitors while they were waiting to board the new ride's Starspeeder 1000 vessel. "There’s a lot of footage there that we spent months creating and this whole storyline is going on, so don’t miss it because you’re looking at the floor. The pre-show is something you’ll want to enjoy before you reach the cabin."
