First they screw up Pixar. Then the Muppets and now Star Wars. Somehow Marvel has been immune but we will see for how much longer.

I've only been to Pandora twice and each time there was a unique show. One was a whole group of drummers, another was a person in a giant mech suit walking around and explaining how the armor worked. It was really cool and added a lot to the environment.
I still don't get why TDA has been so slow in listening to people and start adding more walk around entertainment. If universal can pull of some cool and simple looking Dinos walking around Jurassic area why can't Disney add a few creatures.

maybe they can have one of the bands that they just cut in entertainment play in the resistance area. All they need is a few cool looking custom and masks.

I was watching one of the D23 panels recently and Scott Trowbridge was talking about immersive storytelling and making guests feel like they are part of what's happening. He kind of plaintively asked the audience if they liked that sort of thing and maybe the Imagineers should do things differently if all the 'immersion' wasn't popular.

He got some applause but I thought it was a lukewarm. The question made me think Scott was having second thoughts about how GE has been implemented.

I'm sure second, third, fourth, and fifth thoughts are running rampant through the monorail-themed halls of WDI.

No Scott. We re not interested in watching two CMs in costumes pretending that they re fixing the stationary ship. Just entertain us.

Its a premature question anyway. Even though what they were going for is not my cup of tea nor do I think works for a theme park land, does he really think it’s the right time to ask the question? Based on what, two storm troopers they borrowed from TL?

The Muppets have a new show coming on Disney+ that looks promising. Pixar is creating the movie "Soul" - which looks unique, interesting and fun. And Marvel is not only immune - it has been a blockbuster success!

I don't follow Star Wars, but I'd hardly say that they screwed up those other properties.

Pixar’s been pretty middle of the road this decade with only Toy Story 3 and Inside Out being standouts. Everything else has been bad or mediocre.

Edit: I guess Coco was good but obviously not good enough for me to remember it as a standout.

So... since the SWL threads keep getting hijacked by those who want to complain on how bad the more recent SW movies were, then it should stand to reason that this thread be hijacked as much to talk about how beloved and successful the Marvel movies have been.

Hey, I hear the Marvel Campus is going to be so good because they're basing it on characters people like from really great and popular Marvel movies and they should give Feige a big raise!

Agreed. The Muppets have been treated like trash by Disney. All they have is one old movie attraction between star wars areas. Their last movie failed. They got kicked out of DCA for movie trailers. The only thing saving them is Muppet Babies. Disney killed Kermit. They are hardly a franchise that is doing well.

And Toy Story 3 was just a remake of Toy Story 2. Inside Out received a lot of hype, but I honestly don't understand why. I think its okay, but that's about it. The visuals are incredibly bland to me and the characters other than Joy and Sadness seem only there to insert one-note comedy beats.

If I was looking at the last 10 years, I'd only really pick out Coco and Up, and neither of those are close to Pixar's original 5 ideas.

I think it's a question of "hmmm... which IP should we advertise next?"

The worst part of Falcon to me is waiting 60+ minutes and then be told: "hey you're a gunner/engineer". I did not just wait so long to not pilot the falcon! And then on top of that I also have to sit behind the lucky winners who did get to pilot and see them having a good time or mess things up completely. It sucks all the fun out and makes me skip the ride next time, cause I don't want that same experience again.
