As construction continues on the two new themed lands for Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the last remaining section of the Streets of America is coming back to life, while the “Battle Escape” attraction is finally rising upon the Star Wars Land site. We check in again in our latest photo and video update…

We begin with our latest video update:

And now on to the photos…

“Battle Escape” is quite visible from several locations now.

Meanwhile, they continue to paint the remaining Streets of America facades. It should be interesting to see what these become.

The facade is also being completed so it is no longer a movie set.

Still not entirely sure what this barrier between Muppets Courtyard and Star Wars Land will be, but it is taking shape.

We’re still hoping that the former Writer’s Stop is becoming a lounge for the Sci-Fi Dine-In, but it is still unclear what exactly the space is becoming.

Some work is being done on the facade of Muppetvision 3-D.

The construction walls were expanded out towards the FastPass+ kiosk.

The extended queue for Muppetvision #-D still exists, but a walk down here is quite disturbing. It’s what the kids might call “Creepy AF”.

And now a look from the balcony of PizzeRizzo.

As always, stay tuned to WDWNT.com for further updates of the progress on the expansion of Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Can you tell if the faux stairs to the subway are still there? Just curious. I always thought that was a cool feature.

I really think that the buffer between muppets and Star Wars will be a tunnel that leads to a rocky forestry type area straight into SW. So a short but bam in your face type transition.

How are they going to connect the star tours area to Star wars land?
