    I wasn't a fan of the Disney Springs one. Hard to make out what it was unless you stood in exactly the right place. Maybe someday the tech will get better, but I don't think it's ready for a show seen from multiple vantage points.

    So the Cinespec projectors are gone. That's about the only noticeable thing that I saw relating to the show.

    There are other ways to use drones that doesn't involve multiple drones forming one image. I mean, an army of jetpacked Minions would be funny.

    To say something, Osaka had Dementor Drones for their show. I see it highly probable that they may invest in two drones for the show.

    EDIT: From Ryan Kennedy..

    Wow...maybe this will be a bit more significant than I'm expecting

    Maybe the projectors are getting re-used for another purpose?

    How was the quality of them as of the last showing? If it still is rather good, I can easily see them bringing those projectors over for Hogsmeade and the nighttime shows.

    Wondering if they'll even reuse the existing projector locations, or if they'll be removed as well

    Honestly, I would think that they would logistically bring in Christie for all new projectors for the show, considering of their partnership still seeming to stand.

    To ask, wouldn't the projectors previously there have wear and tear from the heat exposures of the sun in the day periods? I would think that'd be highly probable.

    We need to have some real fire and dynamite effects to wipe those ugly things of the face of the lagoon. Now that would be a fun one time show, hard ticket event. ;):)

    Did they put it back in? What I saw was that two of them were still in there

    I don't think that any of them were ever removed. They're actually the same exact barges from the movie balls just reworked. They haven't left the water in forever. They'd need cranes and stuff to take them out

    Notice in the pic earlier that claims it was removed that there is a line of fountains going through the center of the photo. Wherever the barges go there's a break in the fountains

    The very Best thing about the Cinemagic show was Morgan Freeman's narration. Hopefully they get him to narrate the new show before another fake news story of his death gets circulated.

    When I was there last month the projectors are "meh". So much of the film is black/dark backgrounds- and to project from that far a dark image, it all comes out washed out/grey. The film needs updated more than the projectors (which also need updated, of course). Film wil likely focus on brighter images/colors and less blacks; as has been the trend everywhere else.

    I was just watching Ken Burns Civil War documentary last night w/ Freeman doing parts of the narration. David Attenborough is the only one arguably better.

    About 3 years ago I actually tried re-drawing the map with a canal and docks backstage behind men in black. It looked lovely, much like the docks of Epcot, but it sure used up at ton of future development space.
