I'm guessing the projections end at the emporium? They don't extend into town square?
The change with regard to constantly fitting everything within the architecture of the castle seems to me an intentional change to a) help some key scenes read better from Main Street, especially when viewed in context with the surrounding projections and b) have fewer constraints when the characters on the castle are meant to directly interact with or produce the fireworks. It’s trying something different, which is maybe ultimately less effective in your opinion, but there are still plenty of scenes that play perfectly against the architecture. It’s not like they forgot how to do it. As for narrative and song choice (especially with an original song), those are always something of a gamble in terms of how people will respond to them.However, I do think you at least need to try and do something better or at least different with each new show. As others have noted, there is an obvious backward step in this show when you look at the projections on the castle and the way they just insert clips from films rather than integrating them into the castle. The show also doesn't do anything new: it shows clips from movies as the last one did, this time with the aforementioned poorer integration into the environment as well as a weaker/non-existent narrative thread. That leaves you with the projections on Main Street which are an enhancement, but not enough to overcome all the other ways in which the show falls short of what came before. It also doesn't result in a better show than adding the Main Street projections to HEA.
I honestly think HEA leaned less into the sentimentality and "make you bawl your eyes out" factor than Wishes and was a better show for it. I don't think anyone is arguing that they should be forever ramping up the emotional punch until they get to the Schindler's List of nighttime spectaculars.
I don’t remember how far I’ll go in the show. Only the reprise. Which is like the best part of the movie and the most impactful musicallyHonestly the instrumental parts of the show were fantastic, that part where they did show some classics had charm as if it were an added sequence to the original Fantasy in the sky. There are parts that made me fall in love with the show and then they kill it. How Far I’ll go should have not been in the show, how about when you wish upon a star, moana is already used in Harmonious. Moana, princes and the frog and into the unknown or swapped them out all together and put something in and just threw some more classics in I’d be happy.
It was at the end, Harmonious began with it. I feel When you Wish upon a star should have taken that slot but that’s just me.I don’t remember how far I’ll go in the show. Only the reprise. Which is like the best part of the movie and the most impactful musically
Edit. Maybe after the reprise? Was it then?
Just watching again. Only the the reprise where she’s talking to her grandmothers ghost plays. Not the actual song. The reprise is great. Really a different song.It was at the end, Harmonious began with it. I feel When you Wish upon a star should have taken that slot but that’s just me.
