As we mentioned earlier this year, One Man’s Dream at Disney’s Hollywood Studios was morphing into an area that would showcase the next rides and lands coming to the theme park in the years ahead. Now officially dubbed Walt Disney Presents, the new area features a model for Toy Story Land, a model for the Star Wars : Galaxy’s Edge expansion as well as a display featuring the new Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway ride slated to open in the location of the Great Movie Ride which closed earlier this year.
Here’s a first look at the preview area set up for the attraction as well as some of the concept art currently on display.
For the look and style of the attraction, Imagineers are drawing their inspiration from the Mickey Shorts that currently run on the Disney Channel. The Animators behind these shorts are partnering with Disney to help bring the attraction to life.
The attraction is slated to feature a brand new storyline, a catchy theme song and a new experience Disney is dubbing 2 1/2 D. The idea behind this concept is that state-of-the-art technology is being used to turn the flat world of the cartoon short into a dimensional display with no 3D glasses required. Here’s the official description on display at Walt Disney Presents.
Here’s a closer look at the style of artwork that will feature heavily at Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway.
We hope you are as excited as we are about trying out this new ride at Hollywood Studios. At the moment, Disney is being pretty tight lipped about an official opening date. Keep following along with Chip and Co. and we promise to keep you posted.
