I may be wrong but from what I remember, didnt he make a slip up when answering a question which he immediately back tracked on his answer!

I do wish they had switched to Hollywood Adventure rather than Studios.

I like it, I like the retro feel to it. I think of Hollywood Studios as a more classic, old school park so I think it fits.
Toy story, Mickey and Minnie sand Star Wars arent exactly new franchises are they so I think it fits theyve gone down a reminiscent path with it

Well, at the 2015 Annual Shareholder meeting Bob Iger said when answering a kids question (and I quote):

We used to be MGM Studios, we changed it to Hollywood Studios. And we are doing some significant work there right now. That I guess will result in a name change. So now we can announce that. Not been announced, right? ... No. We will announce that we are changing the name, but we wont announce what we are changing it to.

So, Bob Iger - Disneys CEO - did announce it. He clearly said he was announcing it.

Youre right though that it did seem to be a bit of a slip up and Disney did sort of later try to backtrack. But not very well. Then a couple of years later there were some visitor surveys that did the rounds asking people for their thoughts on a variety of different new names for DHS. Until, finally in February 2018, Disney officially confirmed on their blog that they were not changing the name (here). So, if anything, the official confirmation over a year ago kinda put to bed the rumours of the park getting a new name.

As for the logo... its ok. It doesnt wow me, but its not terrible either.

Not keen at all. Just leave it without the characters. If you are throwing in SW why on earth would you chose BB8?
