Rumor Proposed Mary Poppins Attraction in UK Pavilion

Yes.

But... Disney always has the option of killing something, even if it's been budgeted and greenlit and announced and they even started prepping the site. It's happened before, quite recently, in fact, with regard to Main Street Theater.
Thank you for saving me the time of reviewing all these pages of thread. And yes, unfortunately that's always an option. It was a shame about the Main Street Theater. I think it would have been a great addition.

Originally the theme was another IP. Then Poppins was favoured but recently there’s been some creative issues. At this time, if the issue don’t escalate the ride should open at the start of 2021.
Not sure how much you know here, Marni. Are the issues related to using the new Poppins versus the old?

So if things go smoothly, for an early 2021 opening, should we expect construction still this year?

I don’t know when construction would start.
Quick general question about the process, do the in-depth proposals start before or after the official, internal "greenlight". For example, are there a bunch of blue-sky concept arts and a theoretical ride system first, or are there already "functional" schematics for this proposal drawn up and ready to go.

I'm sure every project might be different but just curious how far some of this stuff gets.

Well, @marni1971 thank you for clearing up a lot of the confusion! An exciting project, I must say. I’m severely conflicted about the thematic integrity of its’ placement in this park, as we all hopefully are, but this should be a positive addition. I hope.

Just catching up on this thread. I'm glad Mary Poppins is back in the lead over Brave. I like them both but Cherry Tree Lane looks like it could be just a few meters down the road from the UK Pavilion. Brave maybe a story that takes place in Ireland but the aesthetics of the movie do not match that of the UK Pavilion.

As a "ginger" American of Irish descent, I would love to claim Merida as Irish, but I'm fairly sure she is Scottish. And as fun as an archery styled "mania" could be, Cherry Tree Lane would fit more with the "London" architectural style of the UK Pavilion.

Guess it's time to start praying for no escalation.........

Since when does the attraction have to fit the exact architectural style of the pavillion? Did Maelstrom? Honestly it would have been nice for an attraction that showcased a different part of UK culture besides London...

My apologies.... She is Scottish. I was half asleep.
