    Lucas Land at the studio's?

    SlashFilm has posted their own article about how Walt Disney World will rename the park as Disney’s Hollywood Studios and how this will result in the park being transformed over time into a series of themed lands not unlike Islands of Adventure. We already know the old Mickey Ave. area will become a Pixar themed land, and there is already a mini Playhouse Disney area outside the Animation building, and the area around MuppetVision is already themed to the Muppets. They also mention the same stories I’ve been hearing about how Disney and Lucas are making big plans to update the Star Wars and Indiana Jones attractions in the park. They go so far as to say that the entire area from the Indiana Jones Stunt Show down to Star Tours / Tattooine Traders will become a sort of Lucas Land. My own sources have confirmed that the new Disney’s Hollywood Studios name for the park was a very recent change to the plans that were previously based on calling it Disney-Pixar Studios for months. They say that a new and very positive relationship with George Lucas was a key factor in dropping Pixar from the name in favor of a more generic name that would also allow for the whole new “Lands” concept for the park.
    We’ve already talked about the possible upgrades for Star Tours 2, but they mention that one idea on the table for Indiana Jones is to upgrade the stunt show with new scenes from the new fourth and final film in production. (From what I’ve been hearing, this may be in addition to a new Indy themed attraction of some kind as well.) They go on to say that the Backlot Express restaurant will be renovated and replace most of the props and scenery with replicas of costumes and vehicles from the Indiana Jones and Star Wars films. All of this may be done by mid 2009.

    It would be great if they made an Indiana Jones attarction like the one in DL. The Stunt show really does need some re-imgaineering. Star Tours is pretty dated at this point and need a fresh coat of imagiantion too. Lands would be interesting at the Studios (I am going to have trouble breaking my self of calling it MGM).

    This sounds awesome and it's kinda cool Lucas has had a say in this. I vote they should take the Pirates Lair in Disneyland and make that a "land" in Disney Hollywood. Mainly 'cause I don't know where you could fit it in MK

    Iv'e been hearing talks about Lucus wanting to expand the Star Wars & Indiana Jones existence around in the park. I just didn't know what was planned just the only thing I knew was about the updated Star Tours. Now I can't wait to see how the park transformed & I hope they make plans for more Muppet attractions.

    Both the updated Star Tours and updated Indy show have been in the rumor mill for at least 3 or 4 years. The only thing new here is the idea that they would call the area "LucasLand".

    Then I would posit that Jim Hill Media doesn't know the definition of the word "rumor". :-) If there's a belief that something is going to happen, but Disney hasn't announced it yet, that's a rumor.

    The fact that Jim Hill is now saying it should be coming sometime next year doesn't change the fact that the rumor has existed for three or four years.
