Slashfilm reports that Lucasfilm has been secretly shooting new footage in West Hollywood, Calif., for Star Tours, the Disneyland/Disney World Star Wars-themed ride.

The site reports that the shootódesigned for the motion-simulator attraction at the Disney theme parksówill feature familiar Star Wars characters and creatures such as Boba Fett, Admiral Ackbar, a Tusken Raider and even some Jawas. C-3PO himself, Anthony Daniels, will be filming later this week.

Citing anonymous sources, the site also reports that the new footage may incorporate prequel creatures, such as Naboo citizens and Geonosians, along with aliens from the original film trilogy.

In the action sequence, the Star Tours vehicle is now going to be chased by Boba Fett. C-3PO and R2-D2 are still the hosts, and Daniels will reportedly record his parts this week.

The ride, which opened in 1987 in California, is part of Disneyland in California, Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida, Tokyo Disneyland in Japan and Disneyland Park in Paris.
