Walt Disney Imagineering is moving the very well regarded Scott Trowbridge to a new dedicated project studio solely dedicated to the Star Wars franchise.
This is obviously a significant development, with Disney now looking to begin to make use of the huge Star Wars property that they acquired from George Lucas. Disney has not yet announced any plans for any theme park attractions based on Star Wars.
In addition, Scott will also take on the role of portfolio leader at Disneyland Resort. He was previously leading WDI Research and Development and various Blue Sky work. Trowbridge joined WDI after being a key member of the team that designed much of Islands of Adventure at Universal Studios.
