A Throwback Wednesday of sorts,
Wonder what new info we will get this weekend
I would say some more details on merch and probably talk about the plans they have for Batuu in other media as well (among other stuff). A big announcment of course would be if they gave the opening of RotR for Disneyland. I personally think it will open when D23 is going on in late August. Would make for great synergy.
I would love an official announcement on the opening of RotR for DL so I can pull the trigger on buying flights.
I don't think they would announce the date for RotR before GE opens. If they did, they could compromise their opening day.
Unfortunately I don’t think we’ll get it until after the Grand opening so fans don’t push back their visits. If they can get them to double-dip, that’s what they want.

The Safety actually being in Aurebesh..
Not gonna be shocked if that's Expo-Only, but man would that be hilarious..
Is that droid going to block the views of the people sitting in the 2 middle seats?
Kinda looks like it, huh? We haven't actually seen anyone sitting in the vehicle yet so it's tough to judge, but for small children, I do wonder.
EDIT: Here's a pic of people inside from Attractions Magazine:
Yeah, that's awful design, unless they are like ET.
And she's clearly leaning to her left to be in the pic.
I guess if nothing is low and directly in front of the car it won't be a big deal, but otherwise, you'll becoming friends with the person in the outer seat.
Maybe they are putting everything high, to use forced perspective, so they can make the AAs a bit smaller, and cheaper .
With practically Universal praise for Hagrid, I honestly think even if this ride lives up to all the hype, there’s no way it tops Hagrid. I just don’t see it happening anymore.
I mean... With what little we know about it this ride could end up being the new fj.
Now, the "best themepark ip land" award...
It certainly Looks like star wars aint it
I still think this will be better than Hagrids if it is what it’s supposed to be.
If Rotr exceeds expectations it will not beat WWOHP Imo. I don't know much history of disney or universal, but i do know losing potter was the top 3 worst mistakes Disney ever made.
If they wanted a double opening and purposely backed off of rise, that backfired.
What I mean is that, with it being a simulator and more slow moving, there are just going to be people that won’t like the ride due to that. Hagrid is hard to dislike because of all the thematic elements it incorporates and since its a coaster, it provides thrills and brings smiles rather easily.
With Hagrid's phenomenal response from the media & public, and the very mixed response for Smugglers Run & GESWL, I'd guess that Disney might back off the opening date games ( double opening bump) they've been playing with RotR, and open it as soon as feasible.
Without riding Hagrid's (while being super impressed and ridiculously excited for my December trip), I think there's also a set demographic that may still prefer RoTR. This is anecdotal, but my Dad can't do rollercoasters. Everest breaks his back, and he hasn't attempted The Mummy in some time. He enjoys FoP, but won't even try FJ after seeing me come off a bit wobbly. So (with the little I know about it) RoTR may hit a sweet spot for anyone who has coaster/motion issues but still wants to experience top-tier attractions. At least that's my hope.
