‘Star Wars’ Ride Will Add ‘The Last Jedi’ Scene Before Year’s End

Star Wars Crait BattleStar Tours fans, rejoice – the newest expansion to the ride, which will feature a new Crait sequence inspired by Star Wars: The Last Jedi, will arrive in Disney’s parks before the end of the year.

Disney Parks Blog has officially revealed that a new segment based on the Crait scenes in The Last Jedi will be added into the ride very soon – so soon, in fact, that it will actually make it to some of the parks before the Star Wars film has opened. The segment will be added to four Disney locations before year’s end: California’s Disneyland and Florida’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios on November 17, France’s Disneyland Paris on November 22, and Japan’s Tokyo Disneyland on December 15.

While the battle shown in the trailers evokes memories of the Hoth sequence in The Empire Strikes Back, it’s looking as though the battle will stand on its own between the striking visuals of the red dust left by the landspeeders and Chewbacca (along with a Porg co-pilot) flying into the planet to evade TIE fighters. Not to mention the implication that the Resistance is holing up in there in hopes for eventual reinforcements as opposed to trying to evacuate the planet. In any case, the eighth Star Wars movie looks like it has the potential to be one of the all-time greatest.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will rise on December 15, 2017. The movie’s cast includes Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, Laura Dern as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma, Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke, Domhnall Gleeson as General Armitage Hux, Benicio Del Toro as “DJ”, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, and Jimmy Vee as R2-D2.

The 10 Movie Trailers With The Most Views In 24 Hours, Ranked

Previous1 of 11

Transformers Spider-Man It Movie PennywiseNot all trailers are created equal. Some give away too many plot points while some don’t reveal enough. Some only earn a couple thousand views in their lifetime, while others earn up to 197 million views in just 24 hours. At this point, trailers have become an art form in themselves as they sell the movie to audiences who have thousands of different entertainment projects competing for their attention. To win the public’s attention, studios often spend big money on marketing campaigns designed to draw as many eyes onto a franchise as possible.

Heroic Hollywood has gathered the ten trailers that generated the most views in their 24 hours and ranked them from worst to best. Just because a trailer is on the top ten doesn’t mean that it’s good (the same applies for the movies mentioned in this list), it just means it succeeded in capturing the attention of the world for a moment. In the dog-eat-dog world that is the entertainment industry, if you aren’t able to generate buzz around your product months before it’s even released, then you’re doing something wrong.
