Hollywood Studios Update: Expansion Finally Starts (Part 2)

Welcome to the second part of our newest Disney's Hollywood Studios photo-report! PART 1 of this extensive update can be found by clicking on this link.
In the first part, we walked around Hollywood Boulevard and then we moved on to the Center Stage area, Echo Lake, and the Muppets Courtyard area. Now we will continue to explore the park by taking a closer look around Muppet*Vision 3D, then we will head to entrance of the former Streets of America area.

A large Star Wars Land poster has been installed on the temporary walls by the Muppets Courtyard:

The facades representing New York City are expected to come down in the next several months:

Other signs on the walls try to give Guests a feeling of hope...

...as well as uncertainty:

The rest of the area feels even quieter now that it has become a dead end:

Guests can find even more walls by the exit of Muppet*Vision 3D:

Some have said that these posters on the walls were once also present at Disney California Adventure:

As you can see, the former Premiere Theater and the San Francisco backdrop are completely gone:
