The Empire Strikes Disney-MGM Studios (1989)

I love these black & white construction/publicity photos from Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Here is one of the Star Tours queue area under construction in 1989.

The queue area was inspired by Return of the Jedi, with Imperial forces invading the Ewok village on the forest moon of Endor. Most impressive is the towering 35-foot Imperial All-Terrain Armored Transport Walker (AT-AT) near the attraction’s entrance.
