Theme Park Hype: Star Wars and Minions

Universal has shut down the Terminator 3D ride for some time and everyone has been wondering what will be taking it's place, Harry Potter or Avatar perhaps? Nope, it's Despicable Me Minion Mayhem which should be opening next year.

From the press release
Guests will be transported into Gru’s house as they meander through his living room and encounter visual elements as seen in the film – including the moon-shrinking SR-6 shrink ray – while they zig zag through a zany adventure featuring Gru’s super-villain laboratory.  The exciting journey continues as they swerve, bounce and plunge to get through the frantically humorous Minion training mission while donning specially designed 3D Minion goggles.  Fun and frolic continue in a post-show dance party where Minion walkaround characters invite guests to strut their stuff in an impromptu Minion-inspired dance party.

In Disney Park news /Film is reporting on rumors of a Star Wars land or at least an entire area of one of the socal Disneyland resorts out here being devoted to Star Wars. This would still take years to make as no plans or anything have surface, but with a new franchise coming it seems very likely.
