Star Tours, which has been in operation in Disney parks since 1987, will be closing down later this year to make way for a new and improved Star Tours II.  In conjunction with Star Wars Celebration V (Aug. 12-15 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL) there will be a special event that will tie in with Star Tours last departures to the forest moon of Endor.

Space will be limited, so those interested should get their tickets to this event early and you have to be an attendee of Celebration V to get tickets.
