In Case You Missed It – Disney and Universal Orlando News and Rumors

The Indiana Jones rumor is floating around again…

Want to know what could potentially happen with the new Marvel land for Disney California Adventure? Details can be found here. What sounds most interesting to you?

The Bahamian government has given tentative approval for Disney Cruise Line to build a cruise port on the southern tip of the island of Eleuthera. Looks we’ll have a new cruise port to visit soon and I can’t wait!

It appears that Disney has filed a patent for a system that would allow ride vehicles on gravity-based attractions to change their position during the course of the track. Wonder what this might be used for…

Pixar’s Ed Catmull will be retiring at the end of the year.

The cult classic film, Hocus Pocus is celebrating 25 years. Here are 19 facts you may not know about the film. Which is most surprising to you?

Is Fox making sure their films don’t conflict with Disney release dates? It sure seems that way.

We’re going to have to wait a little longer to see the Jungle Cruise movie. It’s been pushed back to summer 2020. That’s interesting to me given that the film wrapped in September.

Oh…Disney is looking to reboot the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise.

Have you had butterbeer at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter? If so, you’re counted in this stat….Universal has sold over 20 million butterbeers since the opening of the Wizaring World! (I know I count for a few of those. Hot butterbeer all the way.)

    I get that they want to wash their hands of Johnny Depp, but I think they’re overestimating the PotC brand’s appeal without him. If they have a turkey on their hands with Jungle Cruise (you’re right, Rikki, the the release date move bodes ill) so they can’t move their PotC eggs into that basket, then I think it’d be smarter to take another crack at Haunted Mansion. Their first attempt at a Haunted Mansion movie failed, but not because the brand doesn’t have cachet–just because they made a bad movie. Try again–get Tim Burton, and Helena Bonham Carter as Leota.
