[[WMG: The Death Star in Star Tours is a prototype for the actual one]]
If Star Tours likely takes place inbetween episodes 3 and 4, the Death Star would not be gone, and destroyed like that. Unless if it is a smaller, and weaker prototype.
* WordOfGod is that it takes place post-[=RotJ=] and the Death Star is a new one built by Imperial sympathizers who won't admit that they lost.
** According to [[http://www.theforce.net/timeline/sequel2.asp this timeline]], it takes place 11 years after the Battle of Yavin.
** What are R2 and 3PO doing then?
[[WMG: REX will come back for Star Tours 2]]
He will be depromoted to co-pilot.
* This has been confirmed, though Rex will be a droid in training in the queue of the attraction.
** And that it takes place between Episode III and IV.
[[WMG: This ride will be updated to promote the upcoming ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' movie.]]
Because why not? They can't miss out on a marketing opportunity like that.
