Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker takes Rey, Finn, Poe and the rest of the Star Wars cast members to wild new planets. Starting today, fans can also visit them. Disney Star Tours trips around the world have been updated with new Rise of Skywalker destinations. This is what they look like.
According to Disney’s Park blog, Star Tours now offers numerous new planets that were first seen in Rise of Skywalker, including Kef Bir with its vast ocean and violent waves, as well as some other, somewhat more devastated-looking planets. While the tour typically includes a combination of destinations from across the series, Star Tours will only list locations inspired by Rise of Skywalker over the next few months. The new tours also feature an encounter with Lando Calrissian, played by Billy Dee Williams.

Disney’s Paris Park is the first to offer a short behind-the-scenes documentary of the recently updated Star Tours. The promotional clip offers a little more information about how Star Tours will change with the conclusion of the Skywalker saga. The preview includes pictures of Kef Bir and some concept art of the Star Tours ship that flies directly over the waves of the planet.

You can get a quick glimpse of part of a tour in a video that a Disney Hollywood Studios visitor posted on YouTube. In the video, the tour takes viewers to Kef Bir and then switches to the chaotic sky of Exogol just as a massive space battle begins that closes the film.

Disney’s blog post suggests that there are different variations of the tour. So it seems that this is only one possible version, although the massive Exogol space battle is likely an integral part.
