While attending Disney’s Pin Celebration – Trade City U.S.A. last weekend, WDWNT Network staff member Cody Smith took a picture of an interesting “Disney Robots” pin set that will be released at the Disneyland “Sci-Fi Academy” pin event next year:
The center robot is labeled as originating from Star Tours in 2011. If that is any indication, ALY SAN SAN will be a flight attendant droid when Star Tours re-opens at Disneyland and Walt Disney World next year. This droid may even be the female voice announcing the arrival of the Star Speeder 1000 on the special preview vehicle toy that was released at Star Wars Celebration V in August. Whether the droid will be represented in audio-animatronics or simply on screen is unknown at this point, but stay tuned to WDW News Today as more information on Star Tours: The Adventures Continue” becomes available.
