When I asked my Twitter followers which of the four Disney Star Wars Weekends I should attend, I certainly wasn't expecting this reply:
"@erier2003 opening day, rumors of Uncle George being there to unveil Star Tours 2."
I asked my tipster "r0gue" for more information, and here's what he said:
"I have a friend who is a coordinator at Hollywood studios that was told all vacation plans on opening day needed to be canceled..
.. because all hands on deck needed for Georges arrival."
When asked for comment, Lucasfilm's Chris Argyropoulos said that "it's a bit too early to tell if Mr. Lucas will be attending." With that in mind, take this rumor with a grain of salt (as is always the case in these situations). It would certainly make for an exciting debut of the new Star Tours ride if The Maker showed up at Disney's Hollywood Studios to cut the ribbon!
