    You're taking things a little too seriously. War? No. It's already been confirmed that it's not going to be Carthay.

    I think people create this imaginary hate between Disney and Universal. They actually work together, sometimes. Let's not forget Universal lets Disney shoot on their backlot.

    Very true!

    Still, Universal and Disney don't hate each other. Yes, they're in competition with each other, but there's no hate.

    i learned one lesson VERY well during my time in the entertainment industry. you do NOT mess with the mouse.

    that would be a bad idea and i really think it would end up having to be torn down or painted purple

    that being said they can tear the one down in DCA. its hideous and no better than the hubcap

    A lot of people would disagree with that, including myself.

    Fox Theater makes way more sense to me. It's still open today, and, it has premiered some very popular MODERN movies - Mission Impossible, Batman, The Terminator, Independence Day and Harry Potter. I don't keep up with Universal, but, aren't they building a Harry Potter area? Is this plaza anywhere that new area?

    I find it more odd that Universal would not want to replicate a [once] Universal theater, if this structure is indeed intended to represent a theater.

    Disney cannot raise the licensing fee, it increases with inflation based on the Consumer Price Index.

    I agree. Why not one of the Laemmele theaters or something? Surely with all the historic theaters past and present floating around the greater Los Angeles area, they don't have to zero in on the exact same one, or one that looks similar...

    All we can see right now is the upper portion of some structural steel from the other side of a wall. Let's just all calm down and wait until something more definitive presents itself.

    I agree. Metal structures don't tell us anything. But what is planned for USH's new plaza will be beautiful in its own right, with a level of detail not seen at USH in a very long time. Granted the structure IS very similar to that of Carthay. They'll both be unique and it'll be a cold day in H3LL before Universal would want to appear as a cheap copy of Disney especially since they're investing mega dollars into their parks.

    if you dont like Universal then you are just bias.
    Universal's main goal is to make movies in their STUDIOS. This is Hollywood you know. The theme park is their second priority. Their back lot is very big and film t.v. shows and movies every day. If Disney is going to Universal to film their movies instead of Disney's own studio, that's saying something. I enjoy going on the sets (ie t.v. shows, live taping) rather than the theme park itself.

    Can I personally chime and be the second one to have seen said concept art and can confirm that it is not the Carthay.

    It has a similar art deco design, but it's definitely not not not ​the Carthay.
