Star Tours opening ceremony image

Disney has released a new video showing Darth Vader's day out at Disneyland to celebrate the opening of Star Tours: The Adventures Continue.

The promotional video is designed to boost publicity for the updated simulator ride, which officially opened at the park on June 3, 2011. Embedded below, it shows the Star Wars villain riding several classic attractions at Disneyland, before getting in line for Star Tours: The Adventures Continue.

Star Tours: The Adventures Continue (often dubbed Star Tours 2) has replaced the original Star Tours attraction at both Disneyland and Disney's Hollywood Studios. The ride uses an updated version of the original Star Tours simulator system, which operated at both parks for more than two decades.

Like the original ride, Star Tours: The Adventures Continue is based on the Star Wars movie series. The attraction features 54 different possible experiences, meaning that guests will take a different "journey" almost every time they ride it. Different combinations of storylines are generated at random, helping to keep riders guessing what will happen next.
