I believe on one of the other threads it was mentioned that this has been delayed/pushed back to 2021 and Rat will take its place in either late 19 or early 20. Sounds like it's still moving forward but not sure if it's actually green lit or what.
To clarify....
This was originally scheduled to be open around SWE timings to ease crowds swamping DHS. But due to technology they are using in building it was not designed to handle, it is being pushed back. So instead they pushed up putting Rat ride in France to help crowding, and plan to put GotG in UoE by no later than 2021 or so, in time for the 50th. Pretty sure this was all by @marni1971

I got the impression, from what little was said, that this has a chance of not even happening.

A minor update on the slipping timeline.

Internal, management level and technical problems have slowed development. If they'll be enough to stall or even scrap the proposal time will tell.

That's all I can say for now.
Thank you for the update. So for now its more important to grab that last ride over on the great movie ride if one can, rather than energy.

You could say the same about Ellen.
I wasn't actually making a snarky commentary, just thought it was amusing that Disney's put out a whole series of comics with Mickey & Goofy learning about energy -- hey, free IP! :)

To be honest, they really lucked out with Ellen. With how dated celebrity stuff gets, I bet nobody thought that she'd be more popular now than she was when the attraction opened.

It's so unnerving for us fans of upcoming rumored projects. UoE overhall, Rat ride, Spine renovation, UK attraction, several new WS pavilions, Tomorowland attraction, ToT reno, Stitch replacement, Speedway removal, Frontierland attraction, Mickey ride on again off again etc etc all stalled to some extent. The only thing that is concrete is the 2 IP lands at DHS and the gondola. I know this is the nature of rumors but let's hope we get some major stuff to stick
