    That is some truly awful concept art, but if what's depicted can be pulled off effectively in a live show at Disneyland it could end up being awesome. I'm feeling good about where this is headed. It's been a long time since I've been excited about Fantasmic.

    What are the odds the show will be up and running the week of July 16th? That's when I'm tentatively planning to visit DL for the first time

    One of the commenters on the DPB post said that they can't wait to see Peter Pan and Captain Hook fight on the Columbia again.

    I hate to break it to you but ...

    I like the concept art, but the way Aladdin and Jasmine along with the smoke effects do look off. They could at least used the animated Aladdin and Jasmine.

    There's no set date but I've been hearing on various forums that they would like the show up during June but then again there's also speculation that the MSEP was extended in August in case Fantasmic! wasn't ready, so basically, you can't be too sure..

    I would think they'd want everything rolling by expo time. I'm hoping to get a dining package around that time if it's up and going, if they even have them

    I'm late to this thread, but I am hoping to be able to view Fantasmic sometime during my 5 days at Disneyland starting on Labor Day. The Lantern scene from Tangled always makes me tear up.

    I decided to go onto the Fantasmic! part of the Disneyland website, just to see if there were any updates there and I'm not sure if this is new but there's a "promo image" showing what seems to be Sorcerer Mickey battling Maleficent in the finale. Can anyone confirm if this is new or am I over analysing here?

    Not correct. There have been regular upgrades of all components over the years. Lighting, audio, water screens, projections, lasers, and infrastructure have continually been upgraded to newer technology. Remember, the original light towers were temporary scaffolding and there was exposed cabling along the riverfront! Talk to any Entertainment Tech who works Fan!. Frankly, the biggest original tech still in Fan! is Mark Twain and Columbia.

    Would it be possible that they are hoping Fantasmic will be good enough as an "replacement" for PTN

    That image has been used for a long time.

    Slim to none. My rebel spies tell me that cast and crew feel they are fighting for August. But I could be wrong. This is not first-hand information from any authoritative source (i.e. management).

    That promo photo's been used since the show debuted in 1992, for both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Nowhere near new, sadly.

    That image dates back to the Clinton Administration.

    I don't think it will replace PTN

    My Bothan spies report that it is more like a replacement for Electrical Parade. EP has been extended to make sure there is a night-time offering until Fan!! opens.

    So it seems the rumors were true. The addition of Aladdin just makes the show even more early 90s, weirdly.

    So when are they going to add the cast of Olivier and Company to Fantasmic? I think their time had come for a bigger presence in the park.

    Get ready for the return of Fantasmic! later this summer with a Passholder-exclusive shirt celebrating the 25th anniversary of this legendary show. Now available at Disneyana and Pieces of Eight (while supplies last). And, yes, AP discounts apply!
