HHN '19: Ghostbusters | Inside Universal Forums
  • As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to impact everywhere, we understand our users will have a lot of questions about how it affects the theme parks. We are entering unprecedented waters, and honestly, the answer is either "yea, probably", or "Too early to tell". We just don't know specifics until the theme parks give us an answer. At this time, we're asking to please leave the COVID talk to the appropriate COVID threads, and if something officially and specifically is impacted by a closure, then we can discuss it further in the respective threads. Thank you!

I’m too lazy to post the tweet, but Murdy is saying he thinks Stay Puft is the biggest figure they’ve ever done. I can’t wait to see him.

Yeah, I wouldn't panic about the containment unit. We're looking at an Invisible Man-style endeavor here.

can we rule out the possibility of the ecto one making another appearance within the maze itself, or is it just going to be a simple cutout within the firehouse façade?

I will say that I would’ve preferred actors over static figures for the Stay Puft scene. I do get it would’ve cost more in casting, but anything to make the scene more animated. If those figures are there and Stay Puft is just a big statue, that scene is going to look really lifeless.

I hear you, but given the clear difficulty in casting even a single set of look alikes (note the additional casting calls, some of the GBers alternating in certain scenes, etc), I can't say I blame them.

They better not skimp on Gozer for that scene.

I agree, my assumption is they couldn't get enough look alikes for that scene, but at that point I'd even prefer creepy uncanny ghostbusters masks to static figures.

I mean, the ghostbusters in that scene are just pointing their guns at Stay-Puft. It's not very dynamic. As long as their backs are to the audience and there's a light show going on, and Stay Puft is stealing the show, it should look realistic enough.

The main thing that bugs me, which I'll admit is fairly nitpicky, is that the figures are just standing upright in a pretty neutral position, not showing any sign of struggle or intensity like in the movie, but I guess we'll have to wait till preview to hear how it looks.

Yeah that does kinda bug me too. I'm assuming they'll be reposed before showtime, though.
