    I am not sure how true this is but I heard some rumors that they may extend TLM and POTC scenes in the show to promote the ride and the movie.

    I know they're testing/working on something and its not a new encore so I'm guessing we might be seeing World of Color 1.5 as early as this summer.

    They cut out the Bald Mountain and Hellfire scenes to incorporate a extended Pirates scene. This is a cool scene but I hope it ends after the summer because Hellfire was my favorite scene and it is one of the best scenes in the show in my opinion.

    Looks cool and it seems to fit in more because before they basically had no image projections in the segment. I hope it stays as I have no idea of the other movie that it replaced. That part has always confused me as I had no idea what was going on. Also what is the windmill about.

    Tangled has been added to the So Close segment. Here is a video:

    Westcoaster noticed something on the Pirates scene. They noticed that more flame throwers have been added and some of the older ones have been moved to the front.

    Specifically, the segment is based on the Christmas special Prep and Landing.

    No prob! I honestly don't get why it's primarily based on Prep and Landing. Oh wait, almost forgot, it's now available on DVD!

    Not to mention they have been using WoC as a promotional tool. First for Tron:Legacy, Pirates, and now Prep and Landing.

    True. Although Tron Pirates were big-budget "event" films that provided the opportunity for spectacle in the show. Don't get that same sense from Prep and Landing.

    I guess they thought since they were gonna do a holiday tag, they might as tie it in with something.

    Here are two more videos from the yellow (more straight on version) and blue (further away version) of the opening scene from DisneyGeek:

    Some of the effects were pretty cool, but it seems rather stiff. Nice beginning and ending to the segment, though.
