Official Site: How The 501st and Rebel Legions Became Part of Star Tours

It’s time to join Amy Ratcliffe over at StarWars.com for her latest entry.

When it came time to gather material that would be used in the queue, Disney put a request in with the 501st Legion’s Southern California Garrison and asked members to appear at a silhouette photo shoot. Though they didn’t know it at the time, the footage would be included in the silhouettes scene featured in the queue of Star Tours – The Adventures Continue. The panel features the silhouettes of stormtroopers, Imperial officers, and citizens as they walk through the spaceport. It gives you the impression that it’s a hustling and bustling joint.
