    There are a few rumours now crossing each other, lets be very careful with this.

    Firstly, Disneyland is rumoured to see how they can make Galaxy's Edge more integrated with hot IP's like Mandalorian. As they currently don't fit in the timeline of the land.

    Second, the French Government and Disney have indeed an agreement for additional Parks being build with the land they purchased in the 80's, This has nothing to do with the extension of Walt Disney Studios Park. This extension is just a fix Disney is doing and not with the agreement to build a third park by 2037.

    The Lion King Rumour has gone around for the last 10-15 years and never made footfall into the Paris resort, Splash Mountain was rumoured as extension for the back of Frontierland. Plans have been prepared for this, drawings are available on the exact position of it but so far Paris has not gone any further.

    Star Wars will come in a form or shape into the parks, with an immersive land as this IP is hot and has been for the last 20/30 years in Disney parks around the globe. So far no permits have been filed for the construction of Star Wars Galaxy's Edge, only for the Frozen expansion, so it will be a waiting game when we can see this coming as the land should open in 2024. Which will give Imagineering enough time to future proof this land with potential new Star Wars IP's integrated.

    No reason they can't come up with a new Star Wars ride for Paris though.

  3. If Galaxy’s Edge was built in Paris, Smugglers Run would be difficult since there are many languages spoken and you can’t expect everyone to understand English. So if ROTR won’t be built in Paris, Galaxy’s Edge will neither.

    Thanks for translating. I do think talk of Galaxy’s Edge as a flop are a bit premature. I think most were waiting for Rise of the Resistance to be completed before visiting and then COVID hit. Once theme parks are operating normally again I expect attendance to be up in the parks with Galaxy’s Edge.

    Rise though clearly has massive problems and I don't expect to see it built anywhere else.

    They basically said that since Galaxy’s Edge did not increase the number of guests as they expected in the US parks, and because of the high maintenance cost of the RotR ride, a trusted source told them that they are canceling this project.
    Disney have been thinking for a while now about a Lion King land with a ride similar to splash mountain, since the Lion King festival in DLP is so popular, and they are obliged to build something in this location (because of contracts with the French government)

    Smugglers Run has been immediately excluded because of the several languages spoken in Europe.
    Is there a link to this? A site comparing them etc? I've seen blueprints but not ones comparing layouts etc and had only heard rumours it would be RotR instead of Smugglers Run.

    Being made out of junk is probably the point of it because of Mater's Junkyard...

    Tbh, I rather see a new land based on the lion king.
    I'm sure it was Rise of the Resistance - plans/permits had a showbuilding the same size/shape, artists' impressions show an X Wing in place of the Millennium Falcon, and I'm sure I heard a few times that the only ride they'd be getting will be ROTR. I hope so, anyway, ROTR looks incredible.
