Walt Disney Imagineering executive Scott Trowbridge, who is overseeing the project, previously said: ‘Our intent is to make it feel as if you just walked into one of the movies.

‘Bringing to life in the physical world gives us the opportunity to play with a whole bunch of things we’ve never done before… to really engage all of the senses.
