    Universal Creative VP taking over Walt Disney Imagineering

    "It was just announced that Scott Trowbridge, former VP of Universal Creative (and probably more famous for his works, including IOA and the Harry Potter project) will be taking over WDI Research and Development, reporting to Bruce Vaughn. For all intents and purposes he can be considered just as powerful as John Lasseter as far as new attractions development goes."

    Hmmmm. That was Vaughn's domain until recently, I believe.

    This is great news! He has such a good track record. I think we are witnessing the re-birth of real Walt Disney Imagineering.

    Scott Trowbridge is now at WDI?

    Then you can basically kiss Uni Parks good-bye.

    GE wants to dump NBC Universal, anyway, so perhaps Scott saw the obvious handwriting on the wall.

    Hopefully they will bring all their differences to the table and be able to respect each other and compromise for the benefits of the parks. With all their different ideas and backgrounds and styles some simply incredible ideas should come out. As long as they are all willing to work together.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    He was responsible for IOA, very little of that park has any movie tie-ins at all.

    IOA has very little movie tie-ins? What do you call Jurassic Park? Seuss Landing? The proposed Harry Potter's Wizarding World? Come on, it's Universal!! Movie tie-ins are in abundance.
