We do not need to see the entire show to know the story will be less than stellar compared to IllumiNations. It really is a shame they are wasting what looks to be a technologically stunning show on such a mediocre concept. I'm not sure why people like you keep trying in vain to defend Happily Ever Epcot. Ah well, that's the beauty of opinions...everyone has one sadly.
My inclination is not to like this - but one of the insiders (either @Magic Feather or @MansionButler84, I can't remember) stated that it will not simply be Happily Ever Epcot and will have a true global theme - so I'm willing to wait and see the show. It likely won't measure up to RoE in story and theme, but if it can be 75% of the story of RoE and be a major leap forward in tech, that will be a win in my book.

The word France comes in too early. Originally it was not recorded and no one realised until it was too late. They had to dub it over.

I know far too much useless info.
Kinda like how the "Magical Moments Parade" intro narration is out of sync with the underscore compared to the previous Remember the Magic Parade ("the little lion cub who grows up to be king" not lining up with the Just Can't Wait to be King instrumental, etc)? That's something that's always stuck out to me.

Yes, you should need to see the entire show before you judge it. I don't know how anyone can think otherwise. I'm also of the opinion that you shouldn't judge something until you see it in person as well, but thats just me.

Would you make a post saying how bad the Falcon ride looks based on the ~15 seconds of footage we've seen?

I've decided, I'll spend the next few months being angry over ROE ending, that way by the time the new show debuts, I can (hopefully) be of sound mind to enjoy it ;)
Ironic that an Interim show is called Forever.
(apologies if this joke has been already made)
Well, you never know with Disney....they have a nice habit of keeping temporary things around for a while.

I suppose you do have a point. It would be the same as someone judging Lady Gaga's critically acclaimed new show in Las Vegas from a grainy Periscope stream.

Funnily enough, they play a lot of remixed Cirque du Soleil songs. Some of the ones that can be heard are found on the "Delerium" disc of this 2 cd set!
Thanks, I think there was a new song or two this year, one sounding something like bollywood type with non english words of Oh Na Na? lol could be way on that. It was a rather long song.
