Bob Iger, yesterday, during the quarterly earnings call for Disney dropped in a very interesting quote, “When we grow Star Wars presence, which we will do significantly, you will see better bets being made that will pay off for us more than were made in the past.”
This quote can be taken in a variety of ways:
- It could be a full-blown Star Wars Land at a Disney park
- It could be an expansion of Star Wars Weekends into a “Food & Wine/Flower & Garden type Festival”
- It could just mean an addition of a ride or two near Star Tours
- It could be none of these things and something completely different. THIS IS STILL IN THE RUMOR/SPECULATION CATEGORY.
Mr. Eger also stated that more details would be announced until some time next year. But it has churned up the rumor mill once again as to what Star Wars related attractions and events will be coming to the Disney parks.
Personally, I would like to see a full-blown Star Wars Land with a couple more attractions and a Star Wars themed restaurant but that could possibly mean the closure of some current Disney attractions and shows.
Anyway, some interesting news from what are usually mundane quarterly earnings calls.
