    It can be built where Launch Bay and the former Animation Backstage area. Lots of space to work with.

    I know there's plenty of room to work with, but now that GotG is being built at Epcot, it kinda kills any land as WDW has limited viable characters to use.

    They could've built a land out of GotG, Doctor Strange, The Eternals, Shang-Chi, etc, but they've chosen Epcot as the Marvel park for whatever reason. They want to put Wakanda in WS like idiots.

    I thought it was only GOTG. Also, is the Wakanda rumor real?

    I believe Wakanda was Blue Sky at the very least. Of course it would only be Wakanda (and shuri? idk if they could use her) as Black Panther is 100% out of bounds.

    The characters Universal has are the Avengers family, X-Men family and Fantastic Four in the COMICS. There are characters that squeak past this contract that WDW can take advantage of should they choose.

    Probably not for a good while if we’re being honest.

    Makes perfect sense. Treat it like a new mission and hype it up like it’s a new experience. Gets people to get coming back

    Yea, why open with 4 missions to start off, when you can release a new one every 3 years and pretend it's more special that way.

    @Alicia is on the money. New missions = new marketing opportunities.

    Oh. We should expect a holiday version of Smugglers run version with Ackmena played by a hologram of Bea Arthur taking over from Hondo while he is on Christmas vacation. :lmao:

    I fully expect a Life Day overlay for the land starting in 2020. If all of Animal Kingdom can get holiday decor, why not Star Wars?

    Absolutely! I’m sure Disney would be ecstatic to offer Wookiee cookies, beebleberry ice cream, and holiday cookies shaped like a millennium falcon.

    I'm confused. They have a billion dollar land for the same IP in the same park yet this completely separate experience is getting updated instead of replaced? I don't get it. It has to be super confusing to guests why it's even there. And then I think how the GP will confuse this with the marketing of Rise of the Resistance. Some people will even think they're just updating smugglers run.

    It helps that Star Tours has been around at Disney parks since the 1980s. It's pretty well known in its own right at this point.
