RX-24, or Rex, is an RX pilot droid for Star Tours and is a pilot of a StarSpeeder 3000. In the attraction, it is always his "first flight," explaining his erratic flying "skills." He is voiced by Paul Reubens, better known as Pee-Wee Herman.
Rex's poor flight skills may be due to a transparent red ribbon hanging from his body reading "REMOVE BEFORE FLIGHT."
Behind the scenesEdit
Rex went through several personality changes during the attraction's development. At first, he was concieved as a witty tour guide. Later, he was concieved as a brazen veteran--a deranged and broken-down droid left over from the Clone Wars named "Crazy Harry". He ultimately became an inexperienced rookie pilot, as the attraction's designer's wanted to have a less-disturbing character.
- "Welcome aboard! This is Captain Rex from the cockpit. I know this is probably your first flight and it's... mine too, haha."

- "I'm experiencing some minor technical difficulties... difficulties... difficulties..."
- Pee-Wee Herman's characteristic laugh is uttered several times by Rex in the attractions, and Rex actually sounds like a much-younger Pee-Wee.
- Rex's old nickname "Crazy Harry" is also the name of a pyromaniac Muppet.
