    I think Star Wars Land should have been in Tomorrow Land in the Magic Kingdom Orlando version. That place has been practically dead since Stich died. All that's there is Space Mountain. Now with Star Wars Land there? I would have been buzzed about it.

    MGM makes me sad cause its lost its theme. I wish they had put Star Wars in Tomorrow land to preserve its original theme because when it's released, its gonna be garring. You walk in down a 50s street and at the end is star wars? MGM was about the movies and how they were made and Hollywood. Not fads like Marvel or Star Wars. Sure Indiana Jones is there but it was an attraction about special effects, not a land.

    Just makes me sad.

    I am a former CM from the Great Movie Ride and I would love it if someone made a video history about it.

    The Mickey Mouse shorts' animation isn't my favorite but I really enjoy the shorts' comedic and subtly mature elements.

    I think an important concept that is ignored in this discussion is that children / teens are not only interested in attractions based on things they already know about and like. Sometimes the ride itself can be what you really love. For example, when I was 7 I went on JAWS at Universal Studios Florida - before that I had never seen the films or known much about it. After being on the ride it sparked a HUGE love for the JAWS films, sharks, the ocean, and of course Amity Boat Tours (the ride).

    So it doesn't always make business sense to just throw out logos into the park that are currently popular with this generation because you're just riding a wave that will always crash as people constantly move to new popular things. Also Gringotts sucks and JAWS was way better. It is nothing more than a simulator ride, and we didn't need to lose one of the most iconic theme park attractions for just more Potter nonsense.

    Ughh... Rob applauding every change Disney makes. I'd bet on it that Guardians isn't going to be a huge thing 25 years from now...

    The new Mickey animation style just scares me. It looks disturbing.

    Regarding Soarin' 2.0 and CGI, with the exception of the Taj Mahal scene, the landscape footage is real but all animal and humans are CGI.  As for the Taj Mahal, total CGI is their only option as the air space over the monument is closed to aircraft.

    Sorry to comment again but I feel like the only person that wasn't impressed with Flight of Passage (Avatar ride). It was good but I didn't get sucked in like everyone else reports. I do wear glasses however and I do have mobility issues so I found the seating style a little uncomfortable do I wonder if these aspects are to blame but I was disappointed after all the fuss everyone made.

    I am glad to hear that someone else doesn't care for the animation style of the new Mickey Mouse shorts. I have tried to watch them and I just can't remove myself from the animation style, it's distracting and makes me feel uncomfortable (if that's the right word?).

    The Great Movie Ride is one of my favorite rides. I love it. Its sad to me that Hollywood Studios is getting rid of all the actual behind the scenes and film attractions or exhibits. Art of Animation, the Walt Disney Musuem, Backlot Tour, the Theater now with the Great movie ride. There just isnt a whole lot that is there anymore.

    Im a film student and Hollywood Studios as a kid helped focus that for me. There is (or was) a statue and plaque near the entrance of the park dedicating "MGM Studios" to all the dreamers and filmmakers and creators out there. And to me its sad thag my favorite park is getting further away from that. Love Star Wars love Toy Story. Love Pixar love Muppets but can we please still have something for the film ppl?

    You refer to "Kevin's Book" a couple times. What is this book? I would very much like to look into this

    I honestly feel like Marvel, at least these first ten years of films, will be remembered for years to come. The films changed the landscape of modern filmmaking. The cinematic universe is something that everyone wants to try now, and it's something that so far only Marvel themselves seem to be able to pull off. With Avengers Infinity War Marvel has achieved a feat that no one has even attempted before. An unprecedented cinematic event built up to for a literal decade. If that isn't worth being remembered 30 years down the line, I don't know what is.

    It doesn’t surprise me that both of you guys went to film school, since you guys both are very good editors and your videos are very well produced!

    Love what you guys are saying about having a "real" Yesterworld or Yesterland! I have also been thinking of this for a LONG time. I always thought the perfect place for this would be to replace Stitch. I posted something a while back on another board on how I would like it to be done. I will copy it here as finally I hear someone else talking about the same thing. :) I have always wanted that "Yesterland" aspect to be put in the park. PLEASE take Stitch and turn the theater into a VR experience of old attractions. They could feature a new "coming attraction" poster every so often and change the ride to keep people coming back. Make everyone's chair have full mobility, have a great sound system pumping in the original audio, and of course the VR headset. You might not think it would be super realistic, but I saw a video of Adventure Thru Inner Space that was done entirely on a computer and it was so lifelike. It even had the ride vehicles safety bar in the video like you were really riding it. Put that together with the moving chair and audio it would be AMAZING! The possibilities are endless. They could even have special engagements from various Disney attractions around the world that many would never be able to visit. Anyways, love to hear your thoughts.
