I’d like to see them even TRY a ride based off a film that doesn’t prominently feature some of the most famous songs in the entire Disney canon. I just don’t see how they could weigh using “Returns” as the source material. 50+ years of beloved exposure should carry some hefty weight in their decision process.

I agree

But it didn’t stop them from using Tim Burton’s Alice for the Shanghai maze.

That attraction won’t age well

I wouldn't put anything past TDO...

Most of the cubicle-dwelling sharp pencil pushers have probably never even seen the original.

Which movies did they base the new Star Wars rides off of?

It's not the same for me either.

And besides, Han, Luke, Leia, Chewy, R2, C3 ... all a part of the new trilogy.
Exactly. Star Wars was designed to be a massive cinematic franchise from the get-go. Things evolve, new stories are told. I'm not saying no new stories can't be told for Disney's Mary Poppins (i.e. Mary Poppins Returns), but this is a sequel being made 50 years after the original, with no apparent effect on overall pop-culture (yet). At least Star Wars had prequels planned since 1977. And, if anything, Galaxy's Edge is closer aesthetically and tonally to the original trilogy than anything the prequels ever produced.

Solely in the interest of fairness, replacing letters with other characters to avoid the filter is also against the forum rules.

At least nobody else was actually trying to curse... Unlike yourself. They're just trying to type the name of an actor directly relevant to the topic of the thread.
Well to the Mods and anyone offended I apologize for my misdeed.

As for my use of the said characters in place of a curse word it was not in relation to the topic it was said in response to a comment that was clearly meant to be condescending. Honestly its annoying to continue seeing this discussion turn into a Test thread to see if one can type said Actors name which might I add was initially relevant until it became the focus of discussion for a few pages of useless prattle where others members are coming to read actual info.
