Welcome to Disney Rumor Round Up for Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Disney has been swarming us with news lately, so lets get right down to the newest rumors!
The Great Movie Ride could close as early as mid August to start the construction for the new Mickey Mouse themed attraction. This attraction would open in fall 2019 according to WDWMagic posters.
According to a recent Bloomberg article, Star Wars Land will feature an exotic marketplace where you can buy items from all over the galaxy, the cantina in the land will be served by alien characters, and the First Order battle attraction will feature components from Star Wars Episode 8 and 9. WDWMagic posters have indicated that the Hollywood Studios version could open as early as May 2019. The Disneyland version would open even before that.
Lastly, a casting call was put out for a Rey lookalike. This character could be used for various things from the Star Wars stage show or special appearances. We will have to wait and see where Rey ends up appearing.
