    Or the projectors aren’t on the floats?

    It would make sense to just do that and the float signals a “mask” on the video as it crosses through. That would be far easier than laser-aligning from a moving platform .

    They aren't on floats. They're on the rooftops. I have a photo update with the projectors on my site but will not link to it because it's against forum rules. Unless @Brian G. approves

    You don't often get to see an aerial view of the Superstar parade.

    This parade needs another float/section. Trolls might be a good choice.

    I wish Universal was a movie studio so they could add some movie based IPs to the parade

    It needs about three more floats. I think the Superstar Parades biggest weakness is that it's so short and not packed to the brim with Superstars. Why not put Shrek and co. In there? Transformers? Madagascar characters? Trolls? Simpsons? ANYTHING else just to make it a legitimate parade.

    Whenever I watc
    whenever i watch this parade, it never fails to see at least one family going "What? thats it? wheres the REST????" lol

    every time, every single time there is at least one mom or a dad trying to see if there are more floats coming, or wondering why it was so short.

    Universal had the opportunity to expand the parade with Secret Life of Pets. Instead they simply replaced Hop. For some strange reason Universal seems to be happy with the length of the parade.:oO:

    They could easily add the Simpsons RV, DeLorean, blues brothers, and Mystery Machine.

    The Superstar parade is very kids oriented. Not sure some of those fit. The idea of using existing vehicles like the Mystery Machine and Simpsons RV is a great idea.

    Yep...and they use those individual floats and characters for shows on the streets of Hollywood for most of the day.

    To be fair, Hop was absolutely dated and needed to go. It made the parade even more of a joke than it already was.

    I don't know about dated, but it was based on a not very popular movie. It was the drummers and the lollipops girls that made it work.
