    Orange Harvest could also be Disneyland because it was built on an orange grove.

      Same here in Florida! Orange groves.

      I think the orange is a throwback to the Blue and Orange color scheme of Star Tours, considering Blie Harvest was the code name of ROTJ. There is definitely a cantina in our future. Bantha milk? Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes? I mean, come on. I’m not sure what “scooter” refers to, but theat fragment of a blueprint sure looks like the tip if a speeder bike. Thanks, Ricky! Those of us who can’t be there are depending on you!

        Actually Blue Harvest was the code name for the original Star Wars in 1977, but that is not important. I am excited of the idea if a Star Wars Land.

          You’re right it’s not important, but the pseudonym was for Return of the Jedi, as stated. The first in the series would have no need for a code name, which was used to keep out crazy fans/snoopers (which didn’t work 100% of the time, as some fans in Yuma, AZ, where they built jabba’s barge, figured it out) . The full name was ‘Blue Harvest: Terror Beyond Imagination.’

      Disneyland in California was built on strawberry fields, not orange groves.

      The Orange harvest is a reference to the “Blue Harvest” code name that ROTJ was filmed using.

    I think the Imagineers are finding it amusing to toy with us! Bravo you have just made every Disney nut go bananas over crates!

    Those blue prints appear to be showing the front of a speeder bike! I don’t know why “scooter” would be in the name though. Although the JEDI is the same font from ROTJ. Cool! (Please replace the PeopleMover!)

    Anything based off of Return of the Jedi would make me a happy camper. And the Rancor references certainly suggest that, along with the look of those blueprints. Could “scooter” perhaps be a double hunt? Possibly referencing the location of the ride if it is indeed in Florida. Scooter the Muppet, as in bye bye muppetvision? I say this because the speeders were never referred to as scooters, so it seems like a very intentional word choice.

    Also, there’s a definite reference to Master Windu on the lightsaber box. Not sure if that’s just cute or if they are suggesting he may be in an attraction of some sort (year long meet and greet, perhaps?)

    Love the Orange Harvest moniker. It’s already driving me nuts trying to figure out whether that is a reference to Disneyland or WDW or both.

    Seems to be a lot of Tatooine theming. Thanks for the news!

    To be quite honest, I think this Imagineering stuff is neat and exciting…. but where’s the news about Star Wars VII, (aka, what most people are interested in?)

    Orange Harvest could be a reference to either resort, since they are both in “Orange County.”

    JEDI Scooter ? This is something that I have not read about but I have not real a lot of EU. Perhaps some EU item. I do know that a scooter ride might suggest a kids ride or a Dark ride vehicle. Perhaps something that could be sat in while cruising through a scene or scenes with animatronics or live actors. I will be there Saturday to mind trick the imagineers of information. Thanks for the coverage so far Ricky! You the best !

    I’ve heard a few rumors of what they may be up to!

    -Disneyland will get it’s People Mover back Star Wars themed as lightspeeder bikes

    -Hollywood Studios will get the Cantina. Probably selling some form of blue milk ala Butterbeer (Harry Potter) and Lefraus’ (SP) Brew (Fantasyland)

    -Captain Eo will be a 3-D preview for whatever Star Wars product is about to drop

    -Tomorrowland (which of all the lands needs a huuuge makeover) will get Star Wars skinned. Whether or not that is permanent or just when the are in promo mode for a new movie, is unclear.

      Sorry about that. It was a brutally hectic night and I wasn’t allowed to bring anyone else with me for this preview. I had 2 hours to cram in as much as possible from the Parks pavilion. NOT enough time. Next time I will bring a tripod!

    I wonder if that means no more American idol (was lame anyways) and No more Indiana Jones (best show at Hollywood Studio) I know that the Light Motors Action are packing up. This is all very exciting

      Yes, they have already said American Idol is closing in January 2015. The motor stunt show has just added “Cars” to the show – Lightning McQueen and others make an appearance, so it probably will be around a little longer.

    Orange Harvest has to do with the colors of the rebel fighter pilot uniforms.
