  • Universal Creative VP taking over Walt Disney Imagineering

    "It was just announced that Scott Trowbridge, former VP of Universal Creative (and probably more famous for his works, including IOA and the Harry Potter project) will be taking over WDI Research and Development, reporting to Bruce Vaughn. For all intents and purposes he can be considered just as powerful as John Lasseter as far as new attractions development goes."

    Hmmmm. That was Vaughn's domain until recently, I believe.

      This is great news! He has such a good track record. I think we are witnessing the re-birth of real Walt Disney Imagineering.

          Scott Trowbridge is now at WDI?

          Then you can basically kiss Uni Parks good-bye.

          GE wants to dump NBC Universal, anyway, so perhaps Scott saw the obvious handwriting on the wall.

                    Meh.

                    I'll be excited when new attractions that are worth the fuss start getting built.

                          Hopefully they will bring all their differences to the table and be able to respect each other and compromise for the benefits of the parks. With all their different ideas and backgrounds and styles some simply incredible ideas should come out. As long as they are all willing to work together.

                          Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

                            He was responsible for IOA, very little of that park has any movie tie-ins at all.

                              IOA has very little movie tie-ins? What do you call Jurassic Park? Seuss Landing? The proposed Harry Potter's Wizarding World? Come on, it's Universal!! Movie tie-ins are in abundance.

                                how can you hate on someone for building movie tie-ins in Universal? Hello - that's what they do.. that's what IP they have.

                                I mean.. the name of the park is STUDIOS and that's what the company does. That would be like crying disney uses too many... uh... disney characters in fantasyland.

                                The park's basis is the studios.. of course stuff will be about the movies.

                                      ...and rely on something original. Who did he replace?

                                        Since hearing about this, I can't help but say that this is a really coolthing. First of all, if he takes over imagineering, he would want to invest in technology, maybe even help Disney come up with a one-of-a-kind thrill ride or even an IOA-type park for Disney. I simply can't wait to see what he has in store for WDI.
