With only one year left to go in the development of the $1.7 billion “Titanica” theme park, the company has already set the record straight.
In a new interview with Bloomberg, Walt Disney Co. chief executive Bob Iger said that he was not “proud” to have created the world-famous theme park and said he was “very proud” of the work that went into it.
In the interview, the former CEO also said that the theme park was “not intended to be a museum” and that it was a place for “talent” rather than a place to “make money.”
“It’s not a place where people can just sit and be entertained,” Iger told Bloomberg.
“It’s a place that brings people together and creates a sense of community.
We want to give our guests a unique experience.”
The interview comes after the company told CNNMoney that it expects the “Titans” to sell out in its first year.
Disney had already booked almost $1 billion in tickets for its theme park to date, according to estimates from industry research firm IBISWorld.
