DDW Pic 161. Star Tours
Star Tours Queue - RX-24
When Disney updated Star Tours to last year, they also did some fun things to the queue. This is a picture of RX-24 or "Rex" who was replaced by C-3PO as the pilot. Rex is seen here in a packing crate and he has a label on him marked "DEFECTIVE." He makes noises and tries to talk, but it sounds more like he is short circuiting. This is Disney's way of paying tribute to the original attraction. Rex was voiced by Paul Reubens, who is better known to most of us as Pee-wee Herman.
