Disney has updated its Star Tours attraction to include new destinations and sequences from its latest release – Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Since the release of the new Star Wars trilogy in 2015, the ride has undergone periodical updates to include newly-introduced elements from the Star Wars franchise, including the desert planet Jakku from The Force Awakens, the mineral planet Crait from The Last Jedi and Batuu, the forest and mountain planet from Disney's immersive themed land, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

Following its latest update, the ride now features the ocean planet of Kef Bir from The Rise of Skywalker, as well as three new action sequences, including a new scene featuring Lando Calrissian, played by actor Billy Dee Williams, that places guests at the centre of the action when they are invited, by Lando, to join "the battle to end all battles".

With the new sequences, the ride now boasts more than 100 sequence combinations, developed by Walt Disney Imagineering in partnership with LucasFilm and Industrial Lights & Magic. Over the coming months, the ride will undergo another update, with the addition of new scenes from The Rise of Skywalker.

"JJ Abrams said he wanted to put a bow on Star Wars with The Rise of Skywalker, and we wanted to do the same for Star Tours," said Tom Fitzgerald, creative executive at Walt Disney Imagineering, who added that other additions include a number of easter eggs for die-hard Star Wars fans to spot.
