Not really a perfect place for this. Not much park specific information.

Biggest takeaway with WDW? DHS contract with Aerosmith is up, and it's going to be redone with some type of Marvel theme. Between that and Mission Breakout, I think that part of DHS could be on it's way to being a Marvel themed area NOT using the characters used at IoA and the start of that agreement dissolving.

Unfortunately, WDW is extremely limited to what they can do with Marvel.

That being said, Fox might have a franchise they could use. One geared towards older guests to match the ride? One that may have already had some sort of presence at DHS before?

IIRC they doe have access to some characters in Marvel...and they are ones that do relate to movies moving forward. GotG, Black Panther, The Eternals, Doctor Strange. There's still quite the pool they can pull from.

I know the details are complex, but I would think a Marvel retheme would ultimately be redundant with GotG already on property.

An Alien retheme would match the more intense ride in addition to appeal the huge influx of SciFi fans coming soon.

Or instead of a Marvel conversion how about bring back the original concept for Superstar Limo?

You have become a famous movie star/singer and are invited to tour G-Force records before the opening night of your movie/biggest concert of the year in LA; however your manager realizes you're running late. She quickly calls a super stretch limo for you waiting outside.

The trains have been updated with Vekoma's next gen harnesses and you've got a touch screen which allows you to select whatever soundtrack you want. Disney has a huge library of music to use so it shouldn't be that difficult to come up with a vast playlist.

Everything else on the ride is virtually the same.

Exit has generic concert footage or just change the video screens to a large movie premiere facade and have digital "tabloids" for your on ride photos.

The only thing you'd really have to change is the trains in this case. Minimal theming changes outside and inside. Change the video and some of the props inside the studio. Have an Aerosmith poster in the queue line and a couple Aerosmith tracks on the ride. Easy, cheap, it drastically improves the ride experience, and the spirit of the original Aerosmith coaster is still there.
