Wouldn't that kind of defeat the purpose of replacing it so quickly? If they were just swapping out clips and IPs, presumably they would have just announced that Harmonious was receiving exciting new additions, a new plot, or whatever rather than flat out admitting the show was a failure. My impression, at least, was one of the things they finally realised was a mistake was leaving all the hardware sitting out in full view all day.Given that the replacement is coming next year, i'm going to assume it will be a very hastily cobbled together swap out of the music and clips, but still use all of the same infrastructure (including the stargate and tacos). I also would assume IP will be included again as well. It doesn't seem likely that they're going to actually address any of the issues people have with Harmonious.
I think a lot of us were begrudgingly willing to give them the benefit of the doubt that if the new show had to feature IP, then a journey around the world highlighting the different cultures that inspired Disney films and including songs in the languages of those different countries might at least be the best spin they could put on it for World Showcase. The problem was that the show itself just ended up being more or less a random collection of clips from different films that occasionally switched into other languages without any real logic. For example, isn't Go The Distance sung in Italian for a little bit but never in Greek? The show, at least for a lot of people, ended up being less than the sum of its parts.Was thinking a lot about this last night.
If a new EPCOT show didn't have a completely original soundtrack, would y'all accept a soundtrack that takes elements of the cinematic soundtracks for different movies if it is appropriately applied to the show?
Like for example think about the first half of the villain segment in HEA. The music ain't entirely original but it fits very well
