With Disney acquiring LucasFilm, it's hard to not be excited about the prospect of Star Wars and Disney now being one corporate entity. It definitely got me thinking about what other Star Wars references we can find in Disney's Hollywood Studios and this week, we've got a classic reference to the "flanneled one".
In both the original Star Tours and Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, you can hear a pre-boarding message in the queue area. The annoumcent requests a certain Star Tours passenger to see the gate agent.
"Departing Endor passenger Sacul, Mister Egroeg Sacul... please see the Star Tours agent at gate number three."
The name, Egroeg Sacul, is George Lucas spelled backwards. George Lucas is, of course, the man who created Star Wars and it's been a small homage to the man in the attraction and it still can be heard to this day.
