In case you hadn’t noticed, we’re a little Star Tours obsessed here on /Film. As Star Wars fans, the original ride was usually the highlight of an already awesome trip to Disney and now, the fact that they’re updating it with state of the art 3D effects and 54 variable stories featuring a ton of classic locations and characters, is almost too cool for words. In tracking the progress of the ride, officially called Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, opening May 20 at Walt Disney World in Florida and June 3 at Disneyland in California, one of the questions has always been, how does that variable story scenario work?
Anthony Daniels – C-3PO himself – has now dropped a bunch of details both on his role in the ride, some hints of what to expect and explained the variable nature of the whole thing. Think “slot machine.” Read what he had to say below. Read More »

A couple weeks ago it was announced that Anthony Daniels reprised his role as C-3PO alongside his Star Wars droid partner R2-D2 in a LucasFilm licensed television advertisement filmed for the UK electronics megastore chain Currys.
The advert sees C-3PO and R2-D2 land on planet earth in a Megastore carpark late at night, with R2-D2 boldly breaking into the store, closely followed by C-3PO. The droids proceed to explore the store, interacting with the store’s inventory in the iconic and inimitable style that their fans have come to know and love. With references to many Star Wars favourites – including of course, Darth Vader and Jabba the Hutt – the advert is set to delight young and old Star Wars fans alike.
The extended 1:12 director’s city advertisement has since been released online (and somehow we missed posting this on the site). Watch it now embedded after the jump.

But first, Efron will play…Anakin Skywalker? Read More »

Yesterday was the third day of a secret LucasFilm film shoot in West Hollywood. If you were allowed to enter the “LODESTAR” production stage, you would’ve seen Boba Fett, Admiral Ackbar, a Tusken Raider, and even some Jawas. C3PO himself Anthony Daniels will be filming later this week.
So what is LucasFilm shooting? The good news is that George Lucas isn’t making a another Star Wars movie (not yet anyways) or additional scenes for some super duper special edition. And No, the Star Wars live-action television series has yet to begin production. So what is it? Answer after the jump.
