Rumor: Star Wars Theme Park Focus Will Be At Disneyland
Posted by Eric on July 16, 2013 at 04:27 PM CST |
Disney fan site MiceChat is reporting (via Club Jade) that a recent meeting of The Walt Disney Company's Board of Directors at Disneyland included talk of extensive Star Wars theme park plans at the California park. Walt Disney Imagineering, Disney's R&D division, reportedly planned the Disneyland meeting to show off their plans for the coming years.
WDI also rolled out several of their top concepts to expand the Anaheim property further, with the Monstropolis mini-land and E Ticket Door Coaster planned for the sleepy Hollywood Backlot area and a new Star Wars themed makeover for the messy Tomorrowland section of Disneyland. The Board also got overviews of WDI’s plans to attempt a more modest makeover of the Disney’s Hollywood Studios park in Florida, with a scaled down Cars Land section and some of the same Star Wars concepts planned for Tomorrowland.
MiceChat also mentions that Tomorrowland's PeopleMover attraction will have a "speeder bike coaster concept ... originally Imagineered with a Tron theme but now using Star Wars as the storyline for the new ride."

Click here to check out MiceChat's full report on the board meeting. As for when we can expect these plans to be announced, don't hold your breath. Disney's board needs to approve Disney CEO Bob Iger's funding requests for these and other plans before the company makes any announcements.
