    Talking Star Wars Museum coming for Innoventions

    According to the recent Jim Hill podcast, the closed Innoventions West at Epcot will become a Star Wars museum temporarily in promotion for the Force Awakens in December. This begs the question, so what is going on in Disneyland's Innoventions? My guess it is the same exact thing. You will be able to see costumes and props from all seven movies.

    My guess is there will be Star Wars meet and greets and may be a trailer will be put in the Captain EO theater. They could also put the Jedi Training Academy in there and free up Tomorrowland Terrace but my guess is it will stay outside.

    You can hear this about the last five minutes of episode 81 of the Disneydish podcast.

    So my prediction was true, or at least I hope.

    It's certainly plausible, and I'd certainly go see it. Be a bit of a let down though, as I'm hoping for at least one SW attraction (apart from a M&G and museum.)

    Is this news or a rumor?

    Seems like a rumor since they have not confirmed this for the Disneyland Resort (yet).

    No attraction is likely when they can do something cheap like a Planet Hollywood prop show with a meet and greet.... I'm guessing it will be a lot like the Thor meet and greet and prop show, but maybe not with the same corny intro to another realm.

    Re: Star Wars Museum coming for Innoventions

    This sounds like a great idea to me. It adds a Star Wars presence to the park (which is what Disney wants), but not to the extent where Toontown is bulldozed to make way for an awkward Hoth or Endor right next to Small World. While it would be nice to get a new E-ticket attraction, Disney needs to put out something Star Wars-related as soon as possible in time for the movie release in order to create publicity, and I just don't see that being done in time. That doesn't mean it won't happen eventually though, especially considering how much they've invested in this franchise. It seems like a fair compromise, at least in my opinion.

    Yeah, me, too. I love Toontown and I love the Roger Rabbit ride.

    But for all we know, this museum could just be temporary; maybe they really are working on a Star Wars land, wherever it may be. Honestly, I hope it's not true, and you are right about this.
    My top favorite Disneyland attractions:

    1. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    2. Pirates of the Caribbean
    3. Splash Mountain
    4. Mad Tea Party
    5. Peter Pan's Flight
    6. Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin

    Re: Star Wars Museum coming for Innoventions

    Just to clear up, this is a rumor and hasn't been confirmed yet. However, if this is true, it's basically what I was expecting, honestly. It's not permanent and can easily be swapped around whenever it needs to be. It actually sounds pretty good, too. I mean, it's a Star Wars museum. As long as it has actual props from the movie and not just replicas, it'll be really neat. However, with it apparently going into Epcot is weird to me. I'm no Walt Disney World guy, and I've never been interested in Epcot, Frozen being there doesn't bother me, but having Star Wars in Future World is definitely odd. Who knows, maybe it'll all work out. As for the rumor for a Star Wars museum at our Innoventions, I heavily buy that.

    I predicted SW or Avengers.

    But I wish it would be some permanent attraction.

    Comparing the additions Universal is making compared to what Disney is doing, particularly in SoCal, is almost becoming embarrassing.

    Re: Star Wars Museum coming for Innoventions

    There is no time for a real star wars attraction but there is time to setup an temporary marketing exhibit for The Force Awakens. Disney spent lots for this franchise and they want the marketing for this movie to be visible from the moon! It will make for a great building attendance boost and should be mostly invisible to those that say "No Star Wars in MY park!"
