    Rumor Lion King Flume Ride being considered for Animal Kingdom

    While I strongly admire Tony Baxter and also 100% agree with his statement about interesting and "exotic" environments being critical in a ride (i'll cite Ratatouille for being an example of inherently bland environment design with its boring industrial kitchens and dirty wall interiors), i've...

    Rumor Figment, well, to be replaced by Figment

    Well they did it, there he is, Darth Pandemic in the flesh... Found a brightened image to get a better look too. This will probably get a season 2 despite the negativity. They ended on a lot of obvious cliffhangers. Then again, maybe they'll relegate it to something cheaper like an animated...

    MSEP ending at Disneyland on Sept 1, WDW return in 2023?

    Nah swapping in a different more merch friendly IP caused the sinkhole to vanish overnight.

    MSEP ending at Disneyland on Sept 1, WDW return in 2023?

    But as we all know, Magic Kingdom really had no more space to work with. Unlike Disneyland which Walt infamously described as having the "blessing of size". /s Oh and WDW's Mr Toad was built on top of a devastating sinkhole.

    Rumor Spaceship Earth Redo Shelved Indefinitely

    Apart from retheming the ride with Inside Out characters, I don't really understand why a new Inside Out film for the magic eye theater would increase the odds of a ride overhaul. There have been several different rotating shows in that theater since the pavilion opened. None of them have ever...

    SPOILER: The Acolyte -- Disney+ Star Wars -- begins June 5, 2024

    The "journey" with regards to the buildup of Osha and Mae has sucked and been a huge failure. I've held a more moderate opinion on this series than some other people have, but even I think they're bad uninteresting poorly written characters with a boring and stupid backstory. And for whatever...

    Almost no one likes Ep3 dude. Even fans of the show generally hate it and consider it some of the worst content in Disney canon. I was one of the more open minded about this series and didn't mind the first two episodes, but even I think Ep3 is awful. You're one of the only people i've seen who...

    None of what I said is guesswork, it's hard factual data. Disney does not care about critic and audience reception. They care about views and profit. I don't personally think this is a good thing or should be used as a measure for whether a series should be continued, but it is the reality of...

    SPOILER: The Acolyte -- Disney+ Star Wars -- begins June 5, 2024

    I am not advocating that they should have revealed all of this early in the series. I am of the opinion that episode 3 shouldn't have existed at all as an entire episode. It's mostly terrible, with most of its important stuff having been retread in episode 7. I advocate they should have cut like...

    SPOILER: The Acolyte -- Disney+ Star Wars -- begins June 5, 2024

    The show runner confirmed the other day that they're setting up the story to have a second season. And she probably has greater knowledge on these internal affairs with season renewals than the public does. In particular, she said much of Qimir's backstory won't be revealed until season 2. Same...

    SPOILER: The Acolyte -- Disney+ Star Wars -- begins June 5, 2024

    The third episode should have been combined and consolidated into this one. Waste of time to split them up like that. And they should have cut out a lot of the crap from the third too, would have made things a bit more tolerable. Though I still think much of it was stupid. I think the writers...

    Thanks to the magic of cutting edge A1000 technology, it will now be possible for guests to witness an animatronic of Little Buford being whupped and then shot by his mama. Storytelling brought to life.

    Incidentally, Qimir's dueling style reminds me a lot of Sidious. Specifically Sidious when he's portrayed by a stuntman or CGI double and not Ian McDiarmid. Episode 3 test footage with stunt doubles, and the Clone Wars series. It's insanely fast and ninja-like, but is also feral and...

    There's an extremely relevant planet with a pretty much identical biome to Ahch-To in Legends. It's also one of only about five locations in the entire galaxy that was a rich source of cortosis. Perhaps the ONLY one that still had significant amounts during the waning days of the Republic...

    SPOILER: The Acolyte -- Disney+ Star Wars -- begins June 5, 2024

    Only their original human leader (who refers to himself as just "Ren") used a lightsaber. A saber that was taken from his predecessor in the Knights. And was in all liklihood stolen or scavenged, not won in a fair fight. He was the most powerful of the group, but that isn't saying anything...

    I know about that, but i'm not sure it will connect specifically to the Knights of Ren. The theme is used more as Kylo Ren's theme specifically. They also use a light-side variant for Ben Solo when he turns good again. The Knights of Ren in other bits of canon were said to be marginally force...

    SPOILER: The Acolyte -- Disney+ Star Wars -- begins June 5, 2024

    I want to like Sol, but the writing for him has been very frustrating. Far too much of him saying he'll finally explain everything, only for yet another distraction to crop up to kick the can down the road. Mae's flip flopping is stupid and nonsensical. The show drags and often goes nowhere with...
