    There’s a very interesting second article in the same link as the one above for the earnings call. They mention the possibility of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge opening in September at Disney World. Most everything else I’ve read about that opening suggested November or even early December was a more likely time frame.

    So I’m guessing I shouldn’t expect “Purl” to play right before Frozen 2?
