Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios created a fantastic evening with their Last Tour to Endor party, commemorating the last day of the Star Tours attraction. Fans were treated to their final rides on the Starspeeder 3000 before it closed for a revamp as well as some unique other experiences.
The Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular hosted a one-night-only special mashup show called “Raiders of the Lost Jedi Temple of Doom” where two fan film makers combine Indiana Jones and Star Wars in making the ultimate fan film. Special cameo performances were made in the three shows by such stars as Seth Green, Mark Hamill, Warwick Davis, Anthony Daniels, Jaime King, and Jeremy Bulloch. George Lucas attended the second show, where Seth Green announced that Anthony Daniels would be voice acting in the third Robot Chicken Star Wars special.
Also brought out was some shows from Star Wars weekends: the Jedi Academy training and the Star Wars dance contest. The evening was capped off by a supremely awesome fireworks show set to Star Wars music. “Duel of the Fates” and the assault on the Death Star were my favorites.

Agreed it was awesome, Star Tours was just as good as i remember, but hyperspace hullabaloo made me want to kill younglings
i enjoyed the Hyperspace Hoopla… except for the “Bounty Hunter Boogie” in the dance moves bit. it just was too silly.
My favorite part was the fireworks show…John Williams music (the real stuff, not the strange concoction that was playing at the convention center) played at full blast, with the bass reverberating in my chest…awesome. And the synchronization between the music and the fireworks was fantastic.
Seems the “last” tour wasn’t as final as they made out: we were at Hollywood studios on Tuesday and they were still running the Star Tours ride. It’s been removed from the park map, though.
Rooty: seriously? glad you got to enjoy it, but Bad Form, Disney, Bad Form.
