Theme Park Bits: Updated ‘Pirates’ Video, Star Wars Land Construction, and the Few ‘Fantasmic’

Star Wars Land Model

In this edition of Theme Park Bits:

  • Watch video from the new additions to Pirates of the Caribbean.
  • Commentary on and photos of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
  • The Great Movie Ride is being sent out in style.
  • The Slinky Dog coaster track has been finished,
  • Retro Epcot merchandise is on the way.
  • Watch full video of the new Fantasmic.
  • And more!

The controversial update (which Imagineers explained at D23) to Pirates of the Caribbean that modifies the scene with the redheaded woman being “auctioned off” to salacious pirates has gone into effect at Disneyland Paris. Now, she’s a pirate herself, overseeing a treasure auction and armed with a rifle. You can watch the first footage of it above, months before this change will take place at other parks.

Even more impressive is the new Captain Barbossa audio animatronic, which transforms from human to skeleton before swinging his sword at passing guests.

The Great Movie Ride is set to close forever on August 13, but D23 Gold Members will be able to send it off in style. This special event begins at 7:15 a.m. at the entrance of Disney’s Hollywood Studios and latecomers will not be allowed to join (so plan carefully). Details remain scarce, but it will be a “behind-the-scenes experience” that comes with breakfast and a special gift.

As The Great Movie Ride closes its doors, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is starting to take shape across the park. Here’s some very interesting construction going on at the location of the Millennium Falcon ride show building.

And while it will be a few more years before we can ride it, here’s a great look at the ride vehicle design for the other Star Wars attraction in that land, which will plunge you into a battle between the First Order and the Resistance.

You may remember that highly detailed Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge model from D23. If not, you’ll still enjoy this guided tour of the intricate and gigantic model with Imagineer Scott Trowbridge. If you want to know more about this model and how this land was designed, StarWars.com spoke with Lucasfilm designer Doug Chiang about working on the land:

The process is pretty in-depth, because we’re trying to anchor something that’s very grounded in the Star Wars universe, yet add something new to it. So it’s a very fine line of where that balance should be. For this land in particular, we were very careful because we wanted to create something fresh that would be timeless. You know, like a film, these have to exist for years and years, and so we wanted to make sure that we captured that perfect note. 

One of the interesting challenges for this was to find a world that felt exotic enough, and yet felt familiar. So one of the key things that we did was really play around with scale and the idea of petrified formations. It’s that blend of something that’s exotic, but then exaggerating the scale quite a bit and then creating a whole world based on that one idea. If you look closely, there’s history built into it. There’s history built into the landscape and history built into the structures themselves.

Sequel Bits: ‘Star Trek 4’ Update, Another ‘Simpsons’ Movie, and Is Deathstroke in ‘The Batman’?

Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke

In this edition of Sequel Bits:

  • Joe Manganiello knows whether or not he’ll appear in The Batman, but will he tell us?
  • Zachary Quinto gives an update on the progress of Star Trek 4
  • One of the stars of Baby Driver will play a major role in the Mamma Mia sequel
  • Sarah Paulson boards M. Night Shyamalan‘s Unbreakable sequel
  • The latest odds of a Simpsons Movie sequel
  • And more!

Despite appearing in costume as Deathstroke in some footage from the Justice League set, it remains unclear if True Blood and Magic Mike star Joe Manganiello will actually show up in that movie, in Matt ReevesThe Batman, or in nothing at all. THR caught up with him and asked him if he has any info on his status as the assassin character now that Ben Affleck stepped down as the director of the Batman solo film, and Manganiello was non-committal:

I don’t. Well, I do but nothing that I can share. I know everything but I can’t say any of it.

When asked if he knew when we would find out, he replied, “It’s not up to me. That’s a good question for Warner Bros. and D.C.” So he’s just reiterating his statements from March, which basically boiled down to, “we’ll see.”

Star Trek 4 Development

Zachary Quinto, the actor plays Spock in the latest iteration of live-action Star Trek films, gave a brief update to Entertainment Tonight about the status of Star Trek 4:

“I’m expecting [the film to come together], but it’s a process. It’s always this way. It’s like, “Yes, we’re going to do it!” But then there are many steps in that process – writing a script being primary among them – and I know that’s what they’re working on now. I think we’re all really excited to go back and we’ll do that whenever the phone rings and it’s J.J. [Abrams] on the other end. But yeah, it is a process. There is years between the first few movies – I think four years between the first two and three between the second and the third. So we are kind of on track. It was two years ago we shot the last one and it came out last year so I feel we are still in the strike zone.”

He also said he didn’t think he’d be interested in making a cameo appearance on Star Trek: Discovery, saying “There is an endless combination of possibilities of stories and characters. I don’t feel like they will need me.” Still, he didn’t slam the door entirely on the possibility, so if the right story comes along, we might see his Spock on the small screen.

Baby Driver - Deborah (Lily James) and Baby (Ansel Elgort)

Baby Driver and Cinderella star Lily James will star in Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! for Universal. She’ll play the younger version of Meryl Streep‘s Donna, and the film will bounce back and forth in time “to show how relationships forged in the past resonate in the present.” Streep, Amanda Seyfried, and Christine Baranski will reprise their roles from the 2008 movie.

Pamela Adlon in Better Things

Pamela Adlon, the star and co-creator of the FX comedy Better Things, has joined the cast of Paramount’s Bumblebee movie. She’ll play the mother of Hailee Steinfeld’s character in the studio’s first Transformers spin-off film, which is being directed by Kubo and the Two Strings director Travis Knight.

Director M. Night Shyamalan announced that The People vs. O.J. Simpson star Sarah Paulson has boarded his new movie Glass, which is the sequel to Unbreakable and Split. He ended the message with “#powerhouse,” which could easily be referring to Paulson’s acting abilities or…hear me out…what if she’s playing a superhero named Powerhouse in this movie? GET PUMPED, AMERICA.

The Simpsons Movie car 2

Ten years after The Simpsons Movie hit theaters, director David Silverman and producer Al Jean gave an update to EW about a possible sequel:

I’d love for there to be another one. We’re still a ways away from it. We talk about this and that. We’re thinking it over, but nothing’s happening just yet.…. It’s still daunting because it really knocked the stuffing out of us to do the movie and the show at the same time.

I’d say [it’s in] the very earliest stages. I certainly am cautious about a couple things. I wouldn’t want it to be risky in terms of budget, and I would not want it to be anything that we did purely for the money. I would want it to be a really great movie. I personally feel no need for another one unless it’s great.

Sounds like they’re still recovering from the last one, and while they have some ideas kicking around, I don’t expect to see Another Simpsons Movie (or whatever it ends up being called) any time soon.

the predator cast

While appearing at Comic-Con, Olivia Munn spoke a bit to Yahoo about the upcoming sequel The Predator, which she stars in alongside Boyd Holbrook, Keegan-Michael Key, Thomas Jane, Trevante Rhodes, and a handful of others.

“We just wrapped and it comes out next summer. I’m so excited about it. It’s really cool because it’s a standalone. We have the inspiration and we’re in the world of Predator, so we have all the other movies that exist [in that franchise], but we don’t need to acknowledge them. It’s a really cool movie because it feels very present day, and it’s a great ensemble of amazing, funny, comedic actors, too.”

She also talked about the “visceral” and “jarring” experience of seeing the Predator himself on set for the first time, praising the film’s use of practical effects, so that should give fans something to look forward to. The Predator blasts its way into theaters on August 3, 2018.
