    Well if it is half as good as the movie is, then it should do well.

    Sounds like when Horror Nights did the horror movie montages on the CineSpec water screens.

    I'll wait to judge until I see it, but not holding much hope this will be much more than a clips show.

    In a strange way; I think that this will be a big hit for the General Public..and not for the Disney fans..

    Hell, I don't think its impossible that we could see this show turn out like the Festival of the Lion King; as that was supposed to be only for a short period of time.

    I think that'll be ok as long as it's not a FP+ experience you have to wait 30+ sitting on seats for.

    I see this very much being a glorified clips reel, but that's not to say I won't like it. The soundtrack for the movie was great and there are a few scenes that would fit well enough in a show like this. I'm thinking all three song scenes (Bear Necessities, the snake one, and I Wanna Be Like You), the two race scenes, and the finale.

    Pay no attention to the Rivers of Light behind the curtain..

    This is a nice 'fix' I guess

    I'd rather RoL be late and actually good than on-time and bad.

    Very true..unfortunately, this will probably mean they never do a project without Disney characters again..

    Makes me appreciate shows like IllumiNations that much more

    I am actually impressed they are putting anything together in a month in a half to fill the void that ROL is leaving. They could have just done nothing and not opened the park later. Delayed the whole thing until Christmas or Spring break. Open it closer to Avatar opening.

    I feel the ROI justification for a lot of the improvements and additions at DAK rested on them extending park hours starting this summer.

    I have a feeling that the Jungle Book stuff was going to be a seasonal overlay show segment like how they change up World of Color and the Castle projections.

    Then faced with nothing for a main show, they beefed up the mini show.

    While the show itself seems like it will be underwhelming, I have to give credit where it's due. It's pretty well done for a show thrown together in a few months. Way better than that Frozen fiasco. The best part will by far be the soundtrack.

    I agree it will likely be a glorified version of Celebrate the Magic. As for Frozen though, they literally threw that crapfest together in 10 days or potentially less depending who you believe (and somehow the sing-a-long is still around 2 years later - which is a problem I hope doesn't plague Jungle Book).

    From everything i've heard though, the barges are borrowed from DL's Fantasmic, so that's a positive only in that DL will need them back when Fantasmic comes back. Point being, I don't want this show to become permanent (unless it's a pre-show to RoL).
