    Hmmm....maybe bad news. Saw a rumor on one of the online Disney blogs that said Disney was completely reconsidering what they wanted to do with "star Wars Land". APPARENTLY.....the cost/scale of the construction was going to be around 500-600 Million dollars-which is about what Universal spent on Harry Potter Land. Now Disney is apparently going back to the drawing board and considering something "cheaper" :(

    This is,of course,all rumor at this point-hopefully we will get some good news at the D23 expo in August.

    Where was that written?

    I only ask because I follow the Disney theme park blogs pretty closely and haven't seen that yet.

    I THINK I read it on JimHill's twitter feed....or someone like Jim Hill. I follow a bunch of the theme park rumor mongers on twitter and someone mentioned that Disney is nowhere close to beginning construction on Star Wars Land at Hollywood Studios because the whole thing went back to the drawing board yet again. He mentioned that they were going to completely build out a Tattoine area and add onto the Ewok village and someone who controls the budget didnt want to spend half a billion dollars to build a "bunch of rocks and trees".

    I would love a full-scale Millennium Falcon walkthrough...the whole nine yards. Some kind of pod-racer or speeder bike thrill ride (a legit thrill ride...I love Space Mountain but if you went through it with the light's on you'd be amazed and how kiddie it is). A good old fashioned dark ride incorporating scenes from all the movies. They always have a tough time figuring out what to do with the old "20,000 Leagues" rides, so why not a journey through the planet core....?

    Full scale x-wing flight simulator! or if that is too expensive, a real x-wing to fly around the park... Is that too much to ask?

    I think it's a big mistake even creating this new " 'land " as it should really be a fully-realized theme park instead of canibalizing on Disney;and's own things .

    I used to be a jungle cruise skipper and am constantly told insider information...it's not a theme park, it's not officially considered one by the executives, and they're cutting costs...A theme park constitutes a real land mass and this is another land built to be "completely Self-sufficient" but it's not being done right, developmentally speaking.

    Ah, okay.
    But that doesn't mean we should we poo-poo this whole thing simply because it might not be as good as it should be. This thread is for enjoyment. Have fun with it, or supply the necessary information to keep expectations relevant.

    I'm pretty optimistic myself to be honest but I was just originally try into state that it should have been a wholly original theme park and I hope it has more Guest Intersction than the rest of the park and no red vests...

    Some relatives went to WDW a couple of weeks ago when they did the Star Wars thing, and they had a nice demo of stormtroppers led by Captain Phasma (sounded like a recording of Gwendoline Christie even) which wasn't cringeworthy. Mostly a militaristic type thing. I can deal with that. Darth Vader dancing though? No.
