The new Disney's Hollywood Studios logo design has been added to the new look Studio archway.

Along with the new logo, a new color scheme is also now in place.

The archway stands at the gateway to what was the original studio elements of the Disney MGM Studios park, and now leads to Star Wars Launch Bay and Disney Junior.

In the new the logo, the Hollywood lettering is now far more dominant than the Studios lettering, clarifying the reduced emphasis on the park as a working Studio.

The original concept art included characters, although it isn't clear if these will be added to the arch.

Disney's Hollywood Studios is currently on a park wide redevelopment, with the all new Star Wars Galaxy's Edge, the upcoming Mickey's Runaway Railway, and a redesigned parking lot and entrance experience.

When the entire Muppets area included posters and billboards, the paint splashes made sense and intentionally looked like an unfinished area. Now it’s supposed to be the theming, and it doesn’t work by itself.

Welcome to generic building project from Anywhere, USA. Maybe the most disappointing aspect is that WDI seems to think they have to choose one of two extremes—either over-the-top, tacky fiberglass or bland, boring flatness masquerading as sophistication. Decades of art directors and architects have proven that’s not true.

Oh i agree. Im not sure why there going sheek minimalistic lately? Maybe the higher clientele they are leaning so hard into likes it? Im not sure. Tbh some of the over the top decor can be cheeky. I know im in the minority here but im not a fan of all the paint decor at muppets exit and im a huge fan of grand ave. BUT grand ave feels real. It is a theme. This or disney springs not so much.

Personally, I think there must be a more elegant way to dileneate the "Studio" (read: currently a hodge-podge mess of random IP) section of the park from the streets of Hollywood. But to be honest, I think the whole courtyard's got to go. Throw an immersive land in, or if we have to live with Disney Junior, Launch Bay, and Mermaid, at least give the facades cute Burbank facades that say "Walt Disney Animation Studios", "LucasFilms" and "Walt Disney Television Animation". Give me the LucasFilms Yoda fountain, the sorcerer's hat, and like... the Dopey Drive signpost. I'll forgive the area then.

They are, but in escapist fantasy architecture and design, this might not be the best choice... I agree it looks like an entrance to any mall in the US... SUPER bland and uninteresting.

Sleek and simple seem to be styling cues that are going for lately.

Cinemagic is the name of the cinnamon roll shoppe located in the shopping mall.

MKeelerNov 06, 2019

Hey now, Cinemagic is a perfectly good name ........... for a nightly fireworks show, not a park.

Magicart87Nov 06, 2019

Eh. Looks like the entrance to a shopping mall.

This dark tone is just strange. Doesn’t work at all with the beige/gold on the sides.
