After years of discussions between Disney and Chinese authorities, Disneyland Shangai is a go!
The theme park is a mayjah advance for Western media and entertainment trying to crack the Chinese market, which is very wary of foreign influence in media and pop culture.
Disney's upcoming sixth park is planned for China's Pudong district and has an estimated price tag of $3.6 billion. The company hopes the investment will fare better than its Hong Kong counterpart, which has struggled with flailing attendance and financial losses since 2005.
The residents are excited about the "improvement" to the area, but many worry about Beijing's handling of citizens that currently live in the planned park site.
"If they want to demolish this place, those who have to move will have to move. There's no choice," said a villager.
"If the country wants to develop this place, of course we have to support this," another resident said. "But the government must also treat the residents and villagers here well."
Of course, but only time will tell whether Shanghai's inhabitants will be compensated or blinded by Communist red!
