Huge Refurb of Disney Hollywood Studios May Include "Star Wars" and "Cars" Themed Lands


There have been many reports by other news sites that Disney Hollywood Studios may be up for a major refurbishment. I have contacted some people on the inside and word is that there may some truth to them. Disney Parks have been rumored to be working on updating the Studios for several years now with possible additions to Pixar Place by adding Cars Land from west coast's Disney California Adventure as well as rumored Monsters Inc attraction. There were also rumors of refurbishing the area surrounding the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectaular and the Star Tours area to be somewhat of a Lucasfilm backlot that was to include film props and concept art.

ComicBookMovie.com reports the following changes/updates:

–A indoor Jedi Training Academy will be at the ABC Sound Studio.

–The Backlot Express is being converted into a Star Wars-themed ride aimed for younger children who don't make the height requirement on the Star Tours ride.

–The Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular will remain until they have a reason to replace it as the brand still makes them money especially if another film is on the horizon.

–Cars Land is coming and it will take up the entirety of the Backlot Tour and Lights, Motor, Action stunt show as its nearly the same square footage of the Cars Land in California.

–The Muppets 3D attraction will remain as long as Disney makes Muppet movies.

–The Honey I Shrunk the Kids park was originally supposed to be converted into A Bugs Life area years ago and will most likely be slowly dissolved to make room for character meeting areas.

Disney! Can we PLEASE have a Mos Eisley Cantina to have a drink in? PLEASE?!

As mentioned, these are only rumors. In keeping with the film industry aspect it would be great to have an Industrial Light and Magic (ILM) area where they would educate guests on how a film is made from concept, filming and post production special effects and sound that would change regularly. Other things to add would be a Mos Eisley Cantina, an all-ages attraction and one ground-breaking coaster!

If Disney Parks were to announce or confirm anything regarding Star Wars Land or Cars Land coming to the Studios it would be during the upcoming 2013 Disney D23 Expo. I will be there to cover the event and you can be sure that if the news breaks we will have all the info on Jedi Mouseketeer and the Sorcerer Radio Network!
