    Re: Universal Creative VP taking over Walt Disney Imagineering

    how can you hate on someone for building movie tie-ins in Universal? Hello - that's what they do.. that's what IP they have.

    I mean.. the name of the park is STUDIOS and that's what the company does. That would be like crying disney uses too many... uh... disney characters in fantasyland.

    The park's basis is the studios.. of course stuff will be about the movies.

    Re: Universal Creative VP taking over Walt Disney Imagineering

    Since hearing about this, I can't help but say that this is a really coolthing. First of all, if he takes over imagineering, he would want to invest in technology, maybe even help Disney come up with a one-of-a-kind thrill ride or even an IOA-type park for Disney. I simply can't wait to see what he has in store for WDI.

    Seusslanding is based on the books not the movie and Harry wasn't part of the original park so apart from JP there are no other MOVIE based attractions in IOA.

    Did you know Seusslanding takes place below and outside IOA, transporting you hundreds of miles away and hundreds of years ago.

    Hopefully he'll bring relationships with him to Disney: to talented individuals, and to companies that they can outsource things to.

    Could this put any hold or any second thoughts by JK Rowling on the Harry Potter project?

    Jurassic Park is actually half movie/half book. I noticed several charecters and references directly to the novels when I went there.

    Hes not taking over WDI, just their R&D department. As Vaughn had that position before he took over WDI, youd expect any significant ride systems to be pushed by him.

    I guess someone needs to explain this to you, so I will. Jurassic Park and Harry Potter have something in common .... they were both BOOKS before they were films. Therefore they fit into IOA's main theme of literature. And Seuss Landing? What about it? Dr. Seuss made BOOKS, not movies. Universal's Seuss films came after IOA's creation.

    Well it doesn't need explaining that the reason those BOOKS were incorporated into the park was because of the MOVIE adaptations...

    He has a point. The Jurassic Park rafting sequence was in the first Jurassic Park book and didn't appear in the movie.

    Spider-Man is based on the comic book version. It doesn't look like the movie version.

    Harry Potter as a book is just as big as the movies, if not bigger. Had they not been adapted into films, I could still see them creating a whole land based off the books.
