The rumors are going round again, but this time it seems that according to Theme Park Insider they seem to think that George Kalogridis and his team have been given the green light for a project to remake Disney's Hollywood Studios on a scale similar to what Disney just finished at California Adventure.
It is expected at the D23 Convention in August that Disney will announce that they are moving ahead with both Cars Land and Star Wars Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios, with the project completed by 2018.
Cars Land could replace the Lights, Motors, Action as well as Catastrophe Canyon on the southern edge of the park, providing a logical extension to the existing Pixar Place or it could be located behind the current Pixar section which will add to the Pixar theme and leave room for new Pixar based attractions to open up in that area.
Star Wars Land could be placed in the area between Star Tours and Lights, Motors, Action and include the Muppet Theater and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids play area. There is also another option of going in the opposite direction, which would place the new land on the site of the Backlot Express restaurant and Indiana Jones stunt show theater.
Disney must be considering a Star Wars Land as well because I have received 2 surveys from Disney with regard to Star Wars Land, restaurants, settings, characters etc.
These are both rumours for the time being and I guess we will have to wait until August to see if they are true.
Would you like to see this expansion and would it make you visit Hollywood Studios more?
