The reason for the removal of the Sorcerer’s Hat at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is apparently related to a major update of the Great Movie Ride attraction, thanks to a partnership with Turner Classic Movies.

TCM will help Disney make changes to Great Movie Ride in early 2015, in return Turner Classic Movies will essentially be credited as a sponsor, or presenter of the Great Movie Ride which has operated at the park since it opened in 1989. According to reports, a majority of changes will be made in the pre-show area and in the attraction’s finale.

Among the additions will be a video featuring Robert Osborne , a host from TCM.

The New York Times is confirming these rumors that have been swirling for a few months, but also reports that the deal includes a programming block on the TCM channel that will include classic Disney programming such as the Wonderful world of Color and the Disneyland TV series.

Disney will make an official announcement about the deal on Wednesday.
