LaughingPlace.com has some interesting news about the changes coming to the popular Star Tours attraction. Pixar and Lost composer and Academy Award winner Michael Giacchino will be scoring the soundtrack for Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, the new version of the attraction coming in 2011. Apparently Giacchino is a fan of the attraction.
This is not the first time composer John Williams has declined to compose music for Disney theme parks. He also declined work on the first Star Tours and the Indiana Jones attractions. That did not stop Williams from performing down the street at the grand opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter as well as supervising its score.
