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.
- Word of God 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 this timeline, it takes place 11 years after the Battle of Yavin.
- What are R2 and 3PO doing then?
- Actually, it wasn't a new Death Star at all. It was a decoy built by an Imperial warlord named Ennix Devian to divert the Alliance's attention while his men stole ships from them.
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.
Because why not? They can't miss out on a marketing opportunity like that.
