    Hollywood Studios Rumors..

    Rumor mill alert

    A couple of interesting rumors popped up during my research trip over the weekend. First up, there's a hot rumor circulating that George Lucas will make an appearance at some point during Star Wars Weekends (the final weekend has been mentioned a lot, but nothing is certain) while he visits to take a look at progress on Star Tours 2.0. It's likely that the reinvigorated development for a new version of the attraction is linked to Disney's attempt to convince Lucas to let them broadcast the upcoming live-action Star Wars-based television series (Warner Brothers won the battle to show the "Clone Wars" series.)

    The second rumor is that, following the use of the old Hunchback theater at the Streets of America backlot for the Star Wars Weekend talk show events, it will be reconverted to house a Nightmare Before Christmas-based dark ride, as seen on the Disneyland and More blog (link). If this comes to pass, it will complement not only Disney's Christmas offering, but the more intense Halloween after-hours event they are trying to push for the Studios. In addition, it would help the transition of Grad Nite events to the Studios.

    The final rumor involves space adjacent to Toy Story Mania. This one says that there will be a Cars-themed attraction there in time for the release of Cars 2 in 2012.

    Those are rumors, not confirmed, so take them for what they're worth.

    I got these rumors from mousplanet.com's WDW Resort update.
    They all sound good, did anyone else hear about these rumors.

    It all sounds very cool.

    I haven't heard anything about them myself, though.

    They would be great but unlikely. I do think the backlot Tour's days are numbered with a whole new "land" there someday (or maybe just a big Pixar Place)

    I honestly don't care what they do to the studios....as long as they keep the art deco themed buildings.

    Will Lucas be able to answer questions about why Indy 4 was so bad?

    My answer: because it was always going to be redundant. The main reason for this film...was not that it was going to enrich the saga in particular way, but because...no matter how good or bad it turned out, it was always going to make a huge amount of money. Just like the last three Star Wars films.

    I like the idea of a trilogy...it gives a story a beginning, middle, and end. When they rode off into the sunset at the end of Indy 3, that was a nice ending to the story. Endless sequels...which is the fashion today...can stretch a good story into tedium.

    With regard to these rumors, there's nothing new in them. Star Tours 2 is pretty much confirmed. Also highly likely, a wild mouse coaster ride....which in case of DHS, will likely be Cars-themed and opening to coincide with the release of Cars 2. The Nightmare Before Christmas rumor has also been around for a while...but the latest rumors suggest that if it does come to reality, it won't be nearly as good as the concepts found on the DisneyandMore blog.

    I would ask Spielberg, it sounds like in the past there has been a lot of Lucas getting his way when Spielberg may not have agreed with him (stated in the Temple of Doom commentary I believe).
    But back on topic, I certainly wish they would just run with it. Anything star wars would make me very happy.

    Hey, the first 2/3 of the film were awesome, and the last third wasn't bad, just by the numbers. Still prefer it to Last Crusade.

    Anything Spielberg gets good reviews, and the name Indiana Jones is what is responsible for the box office grosses.
