File this one under rumor or speculation, but we noticed something interesting about the concept art on the walls that were put up this morning.

First, let’s take a look at the concept art released to the media a while ago.

Toy Story Land at DisneyÕs Hollywood Studios in Florida -- The reimagining of DisneyÕs Hollywood Studios will take guests to infinity and beyond, allowing them to step into the worlds of their favorite films, starting with Toy Story Land. This new 11-acre land will transport guests into the adventurous outdoors of AndyÕs backyard. Guests will think they've been shrunk to the size of Woody and Buzz as they are surrounded by oversized toys that Andy has assembled using his vivid imagination. Using toys like building blocks, plastic buckets and shovels, and game board pieces, Andy has designed the perfect setting for this land, which will include two new attractions for any Disney park and one expanded favorite.

Now, let’s take a look at the concept art on the walls near Toy Story Land.

Noticeable differences include a more subdued version of the Slinky Dog Coaster (all above ground now, less props, removed walkways, etc), a building was removed or maybe shifted, and an interesting addition to the left side of the art.

It appears that it could be the entrance to Star Wars Land. The vertical structures could be the vertical rock work or trees in this concept art.

Star Wars-Themed Lands Coming to Disney Parks Ð Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced at D23 EXPO 2015 that Star Wars-themed lands will be coming to Disneyland park in Anaheim, Calif., and DisneyÕs Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Fla., creating DisneyÕs largest single-themed land expansions ever at 14-acres each, transporting guests to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life. These authentic lands will have two signature attractions, including the ability to take the controls of one of the most recognizable ships in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon, on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle.

Star Wars Land has been rumored to be put anywhere from Echo Lake, to the Cast Member Parking Lot, to Streets of America. If this is in fact Star Wars Land, and if Toy Story Land is going in the space behind Toy Story Midway Mania, that would mean that Star Wars Land would be going in the Lights, Motors, Action/Streets of America area.

Again, file this under speculation, but the new concept art definitely has some changes from what was released a while ago.

UPDATE: We went out to Hollywood Studios this morning and found Star Wars Land concept art on the walls near the New York skyline facades in the Streets of America. With Toy Story Land concept art near where it is rumored to be located, Star Wars Land concept art here, in Streets of America, would support the speculation laid out above.

    It’s speculation but it makes perfect sense. Put star wars land near the existing star wars themed attractions (star tours, Jedi training, etc) and Pixar land near toy story mania.

      Agreed. I just wanted to make clear that this wasn’t official info

    This isn’t easy to figure out. If what the above article says is true, based on the concept art, then in order to link STAR WARS LAND to STAR TOURS, they will need to do away with MUPPET COURTYARD. There HAS been confirmation that the MUPPETS will make their way to LIBERTY SQUARE in MAGIC KINGDOM, but there is new construction on a MUPPET-THEMED RESTAURANT at HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS, so moving the entire MUPPET COURTYARD or even just it’s attractions to MAGIC KINGDOM seems strange. Perhaps, the MUPPET COURTYARD will be surrounded by the mountains in the concept art. More than likely though, the concept art is just kinda unreliable.

      Hi Marc, awesome comment!

      Rumor is that Star Tours actually won’t survive the current construction and will possibly be returned to
