Disney Opens \’Star Wars\’ Studio at Imagineering!


star tours floridaIf the EU announcements today weren’t enough Star Wars for you in one day, how about some theme park news. According to Disney theme park fan site Laughing Place, Disney has promoted Scott Trowbrige to lead a new studio dedicated to developing Star Wars experiences for the park.

Before heading up this studio, Trowbridge was in charge of R&D and “Blue Sky” efforts in Imagineering and while at Universal he worked on such popular rides as the great Amazing Spider-Man ride in Florida as well as the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

At WonderCon this weekend we spoke to someone know is in the mix of what’s been going on with the Star Wars side of the parks and he said none of the rumors that have leaked out are actually happening. It sounded then as if they’re doing a fresh start on all Star Wars ideas, and this opening of a new studio dedicated to Star Wars makes a lot of sense based on that.
