Or at least read the words of the many, many, many people who have praised the show for what it is: absolutely brilliant.
    Geee ,The Twilight Zone,I still watch the show on . ME-TV !

            I get you. I didn't catch that you were a big fan of the Twilight Zone show before, makes sense you're so passionate about the retheme.

              Cheap? Probably, but there are lots of places I would spend money on the parks before theming and decor. Infrastructure, seats, training, cast member raises.
              So...1940's Hollywood has a modern movie studio that lets you ride on the giant sets that movies don't really use anymore? So we're not helping the Guardians escape, we're just visiting a fictional movie studio??

                Unrelated to MB, The Twilight Zone was a great show and will always be a TV classic. It had great writing, good acting and talented directors; plus the show still holds up today for the most part. 95% of shows on tv now days severely lack any of those qualities.

                  No. Here's a 1940's themed movie set, here is a meet and greet with characters from Marvel movies, here are rides fearuring stories from Marvel movies. Marvel Studios.

                    That doesn't really make sense in the context of a theme park. Would you say 'So, we're not really <doing whatever we're doing in some period-appropriate ride>, we're just visiting a fictional representation of classic Hollywood? If the GoTG ride will exist within a Marvel Studious (I have no idea if that's what it will end up being) land, then it should fit in fine. If Hollywoodland ends up being replaced with such a Marvel Studios land, I think it will be a shame that they went so far to start properly theming and fleshing-out the land, just to make a 90 degree turn and waste all of that effort. But I also think that if they are going to add several Marvel IP-based rides to that area of the park, it would be better for them to exist in a land in which they thematically fit.

                      I just fear their idea of the Marvel area is all the same colors they are choosing for the tower. As other have pointed out lets call it TL98 Marvel mashup! I guess someone in Burbank realized their TL98 paint stash was about to expire in 2018 so they needed to use the rest of it.

                        Correct. The environment for Mission: Breakout is going to be an "authentic" fortress of the Collector.

                        There is no indication that the attraction will express a movie set aesthetic. Whether it be a time period or Marvel studio.
                        "Disneyland is a national treasure, and every student of themed design,
                        or history, or urban planing, or entertainment art needs to see it, and
                        absorb it, and experience it fully" - FoxxFur

                          That still doesn't make any sense. It's not like people are only remembering it from when they first saw it on television in the early 1960's. It has been on TV continuously for over half a century, then available to watch on VHS thirty years ago, then available to watch on disc, and now in our modern world it's available for digital streaming whenever you want. I just watched the entire run again last year, it's very fresh in my mind and it's still as brilliant as ever. It might be even more brilliant now because with The Twilight Zone having been around for over 50 years you can really see how much influence it's had on TV/movies/pop-culture in that time.

                          Anyway, back to the look of this new attraction:

                          I love The Twilight Zone and I love things that are Haunted themed, so I loved The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. But if the exterior for TZToT would have had this new look on it originally.........I would have thought it was completely and totally ugly and disappointing.

                          Will the attraction be as much of a letdown as this exterior? We will soon find out.

                            I think so too. Would it be my ideal choice? No, but it lets them have the area make some sort of sense in a less expensive way during the time they are spending billions on Star Wars and Avatar Lands. Honestly Disneyland Resort needs much more in terms of infrastructure like a parking garage for employees, bigger walkways and venues for performances that don't stop foot traffic. Clearly they have tons of demand and visitors right now, so it is time to build out the bones of the parks and not as much with the rides, especially after Star Wars land.

                              It is a ride based on Movie Characters which lets it fit into a Marvel Studios area. "Here ride this from a Marvel movie, here meet Spiderman and Captain America and Black Widow, here learn to draw the Marvel Character of your choice. Marvel Studios.

                                So, just a hodgepodge of themes? A movie studio theme where any ride based upon a film or genre works?
