It has been rumored for a few months that Universal will replace Spider-Man's projection systems with an all digital solution, resulting in vastly improved 3-D effects.
The new all digital system could also pave the way for a possible theme change to the Transformers if Universal decides to stop offering free advertising for Disney's Marvel properties.
...new practical shark effects to Jaws?
...update Terminator with new footage taking in all the movies?
...or perhaps the most important improvement they could possibly make - mask the wires to the flying cow in Twister!
Does anyone know if forbidden journey is film or digital? I would assume since it's so new it would be digital, but maybe they are switching that instead of spiderman if it's not? FJ definitely qualifies as single most popular...
maybe they will make rip ride rocket not suck?
I guess updating Spider-Man would be kind of cool too.
Even if they are allowed to update I'm sure the legal buffs down at Disney will find a way to contest it and make it as hard as possible for Universal to push through an update.
Plus, why would Universal want to make a significant investment into an attraction which essentially advertises a competitors product when they could spend it on a re-theme?
