    So is there a reason why the Ant-Man ride was basically "re-announced" at D23? I didn't see that there was any new information there and we've had that same concept art for a while now.

    I think the only things known was that it'd have Ant-Man at that time, but that the new announcement showcased the Wasp design coming for "Ant-Man & The Wasp".

    I think the project has been delayed. It was originally to open in 2018, but even though I know Buzz has closed to convert over to Ant-Man there, they refuse to even give a timeline on when the attraction will open (Summer 2018, for example).

    From Main Street Gazelle, the new Castle/Hub has been delayed to 2020, as Frozen/Arendale has also now been delayed to 2021, with Ant Man and The Wasp now delayed to 2019..

    I sort of figured Ant-Man had been delayed. Buzz has closed, but we've heard absolutely nothing about Ant-Man from Disney PR. Not even a timeline for an opening date.

    You would think they would've wanted it open for when the new movie comes out in Summer.

    To be fair, we do know at-least of the inclusion of The Wasp, along with that there is multiple pieces of conceptual art now lying around for the attraction.

    I am though not shocked about the Castle delay and Ant Man & The Wasp delay. But I am somewhat surprised that Frozen is now delayed.

    I wonder what could be the cause of delays by full years.

    Probably money. The last quarter was the only good quarter they've had in years.

    Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lily have been confirmed for the Ant-Man & The Wasp attraction, as the ride has officially been titled as "Ant-Man & The Wasp: Nano Battle!"

    Hong Kong just got hammered by Typhoon Mangkhut. Here is some damage at HKDL.





    And other places in Hong Kong.








    My prayers are with the folks in Hong Kong.

    That reporter is scarily brave, especially to stand near the building that had just had another piece of it fall right near him.
