    I've done some looking at Shanghai's castle. If they were able to cover up the sides with some nice, tall trees, it'd look a lot less boxy.

    Yes, when I visited and first saw the castle from the front I was mindblown. The front is just so beautiful. But sadly from all other angles it's not as good. Hope this one will fix problems like those. Problem with Shanghai is also that itms sooo large. So when you stand at the bottom it isn't the best view cause you actually only see the bottom part towering above you. Cause in some drone videos the castle does look mich better from a higher point.

    If all Princesses matter why did they boot Esmerelda from the line up when The Princess and the Frog was announced?

    Esmeralda has not ever been a Disney Princess. There are 11 characters in the official princess lineup:

    Snow White
    Cinderella
    Aurora
    Ariel
    Belle
    Jasmine
    Pocahontas
    Mulan
    Tiana
    Rapunzel
    Merida

    When the lineup was first developed and marketed, Esmerelda was on the list. She was booted off around the time they started development on The Princess and the Frog.

    Sorry, but Esmeralda has never been in the Disney Princess line. The line premiered in 2001 with Snow, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan and Tinker Bell. Tinker Bell didn't last long in the line and was removed pretty quickly IIRC. Esmeralda has never been a part of the official princess line.

    She was for like a minute, at least in terms of merchandising. Same time as Tinker Bell.

    Interesting. Perhaps as a kids movie, it is not the best. It deserves and I love the idea of a live-action Hunchback.:)

    i wonder what will be the replacement for Disney in the stars? There will be no fireworks for the next 2 years for HK? Even a stage show perhaps? besides moana.

    Hard to have a replacement when the castle is under construction. I'm sure Paint the Night will be sufficient.

    I look forward to seeing a Moana show in a Disney park. Would love to see Paris bring a Moana show to the park somewhere.
