Now, as the studio prepares to debut its next feature “Moana” this fall, fans and critics alike are eagerly waiting to see what Disney has cooked up for its second non-Pixar animated release of 2016. Earlier this summer I was fortunate enough to attend a behind-the-scenes preview of “Moana” at the Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Tujunga campus in North Hollywood. At the event, media were treated to glimpses of the film as a work-in-progress, and had the chance to listen in as members of the creative team discussed the process of bringing such an ambitious, epic movie to life.

The Carousel Inn and Suites, which Disney purchased last year for $32 million, would close in October and eventually get razed to make way for a pedestrian walkway leading from the new transit hub to the bridge 20 feet above Harbor.
