          Well, I’m thinking that Hollywood Studios will rename into “Disney-Turner Movieverse” which will be a joint venture park of Disney and Turner (a Time Warner company), thanks to Turner’s channel TCM sponsoring the Great Movie Ride and currently airing (maybe) Disney classic films on TV, that will have attractions based on movies and TV shows from Disney (Disney Channel, Pixar, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Lucasfilm) and Turner Broadcasting System (CNN, Cartoon Network, MGM’s Wizard of Oz film). What would you think about my idea? Will that be possible? Why or why not?

    I hope it is complete within five years. I am a star wars junkie. I do not see where they can put it in California being they do not have much Real estate available at Disney Land. Or California adventure.

      They recently bought up 14 acres across the street from Disneyland, Star Wars Land is most likely going there.

        Actually it’s going on the north side of the park. Toon town will be going by bye as well as circle d ranch and other back stage building to be relocated off site.

      Maybe by 2021 hopefully for the 50th anniversary of disney world but who knows. Disney is not know for its construction speed. Toy story land will more then likely be completed before the star wars expansion.

      Update: It was later revealed that Star Wars Land at Disneyland will be taking over Big Thunder Ranch and nearby backstage areas to comprise that 14 acres. It will begin construction by the end of 2017.

    BuzzFeed is saying it will go where Big Thunder Ranch and Toon Town is currently including the office areas behind that. The office areas supposedly will go in the newly purchased areas across from the park, behind the hotels.

      Doesn’t say anything about Toon Town at all. Read the article.

      Actually according to the official Disneyland Twitter, it is only Big Thunder Ranch and Backstage areas being replaced:

    Hollywood Studios is only about a 4 hour park now – and most of that is defined by how long we want to stand in the 2 thrill rides. Glad to see some adult themed non-princess/fairy focused entertainment coming to that park.

      Hollywood Studios is def. a 4 or 5 hour park, but the Sunset Blvd. rides aren’t the only attractions. When I was a CP I would always hit Star Tours and Toy Story Mania as well. Mind you Mania is mainly a long wait because of the long ride load-times (a la Soarin’ at Epcot), but I still don’t think you can simply boil down Hollywood Studios to just two attractions. It is a 3 attraction park at least.

    So was there any talk on where the 2 lands would go at each park? I’ve been very nervous that Studios will close Muppets, since it’s Star Tour’s nearest neighbor. 14 acres is a lot of space.

    A me too. Two steps behind. Guess Harry at Universal is giving Mickey a run for his cheese…er…money.

    Maybe the back portion but not big thunder ranch!!! It’s one of the very few somewhat quiet places you can go to if you need a breather!!

    Just because the Disney Corp purchased the Lucas rights to Star Wars does NOT turn Star Wars into “Disney Magic”. Wrong history, wrong culture. Will the Steam Train still navigate through “Star Wars Land”? If the massive “Star Wars” cult can sustain such a park, build it in its own realistic environment, like the high desert above Los Angeles, near Lancaster or Apple Valley. Please don’t ruin Mr. Disney’s dream.

    I am glad they are leaving Toon Town alone, I like to walk through and the Roger Rabbit ride is always good once per trip. Good decision to get rid of Big Thunder Ranch. Gee, we can’t pet goats anymore… what a shame! I always thought it was annoying to walk past/through this area to get from Fantasyland to Frontierland and was NEVER inclined to go in NOT ONCE! I for one applaud this decision. Now, the decision to replace Aladdin with a despicable Frozen Show… not a fan!
