Discussion in 'Epcot' started by Nick, Jun 6, 2018.
The coloring of that bun is an... interesting choice.
It looks like they were going for a “galactic” look for it, but it just looks like it’s a bun that’s overgrown with mold.
WTF is that?
Here's a video of the first show yesterday. For all intents and purposes it is the exact same show, which given the popularity of it last year, is a smart play. The main singer seems to have a lot more soul than anyone I saw last year in the role.
That would be a very solid show... in Tomorrowland.
Given rumored behind-the-scenes issues, not a surprise, but also pretty much confirmation this will be the last great theme park show in Orlando.
Is it really more out-of-place than a Bee Gees cover band tho?
At least the Bee Gees aren't aliens from a fictional universe.
As far as I know!
How do a Bee Gees tribute band fit in any better though? You avoided the question.
I mean, this is honestly the first time I'm hearing about a Bee Gees tribute band, but I do think there's a distinction between real musical acts that exist in the world and a show centered around an alien civilization that has no connection to the real world.
I don't think saying this would be a better show for Tomorrowland than for an area dedicated to real cultures is somehow controversial. And I said that, as a show on its own, it's solid.
The reason tribute bands were brought up was because for their summer concert series, they used to just bring in a bunch of tribute bands for popular bands. I don't disagree that it would fit Tomorrowland, but it's not there. Clearly Disney wants Epcot to be where the Marvel stuff is and whether it fits or not is almost irrelevant to the conversation due to that.
I understand your issue with it in WS, but if it has to be there, at least the show is good.
Why do you say that? That's a pretty big statement.
I get it. And as I've said before, I would be much more forgiving if Disney would finally explain what they want the new "theme" of Epcot to be, beyond their "More timeless, relevant, family, Disney" line. What is this park? And what makes it different from just an overflow area for attractions Disney doesn't want to put in the other three parks?
I just want somebody in the company to articulate a coherent thematic concept.
May be misunderstanding, but I believe he's referencing Roddy's role in the show's writing/direction.
It's pretty much the exact same cast as last year. The male lead singer in the video is hands down the best.
