Last week, reports hit the Internet saying Disney was adding Star Wars Land to their Hollywood Studios theme park in Orlando. Some details were made available but ComicBookMovie.com's The Daily SuperHero can now confirm what is really expected to change at the park. Now that these new details have been provided, don't get too excited as the changes are definitely not as cool as expected.
According to an amusement park source who is very knowledgable of the inner workings of the world's largest entertainment company, the following two changes are happening at the Orlando park that are Star Wars-related.
–A indoor Jedi Training Academy will be at the ABC Sound Studio.
–The Backlot Express is being converted into a Star Wars-themed ride aimed for younger children who don't make the height requirement on the Star Tours ride. (Got give the kiddies something too, right?)
And that's it for Star Wars changes/additions. Nowhere close to what one would expect. Also, in order to completely clear the air of all the false rumors online, the source said the following changes are also occurring at the park.
–The Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular will remain until they have a reason to replace it as the brand still makes them money especially if another film is on the horizon.
–Cars Land is coming and it will take up the entirety of the Backlot Tour and Lights, Motor, Action stunt show as its nearly the same square footage of the Cars Land in California.
–The Muppets 3D attraction will remain as long as Disney makes Muppet movies.
–The Honey I Shrunk the Kids park was originally supposed to be converted into A Bugs Life area years ago and will most likely be slowly dissolved to make room for character meeting areas.
Quick note: notice that rumor of a Mos Eisley cantina coming to the park is not listed. This doesn't mean it's debunked but it does mean to not get your hopes up that it's actually happening.
In closing, the source told The Daily SuperHero that the Imagineers are constantly working to improve the theme park experience for fans and further changes can, and will, happen at the drop of a hat. As of right now, the officially plans are the ones listed above.
