anything is possible....but you know all they care about is the dollar right? as long as you keep going why would they change course?I'm a massive fan of ROL but without the performers you might as well just cut the show. I can't see how cutting these performers is a huge saving compared to the amount of cast that do the crowd control or the crew that set up the shoe each day?
Surely a more logical solution would be do the show on select nights like they used to with Fantasmic?
I still can't believe they never found a way to add the 100 lanterns back into the show.
This is just the first phase. Without the Shaman crews, the show becomes even more difficult to follow for average guests, if not totally incoherent. The show's mixed reception takes even more of a dive and that becomes justification to pull the plug entirely.I am so absolutely devastated that they're cutting the shaman. I love RoL, and I knew from the beginning that the beauty and story was lost on a lot of people and even more didn't care to find it. I knew they'd do something to ruin it, I just figured I'd have to endure another clipshow of Disney movies...I didn't think they'd rip out the beating heart and then let the carcass continue moving. Everything in the show comes from them (i mean i know it comes from clever programming but like...thematically) they summon the animal totems, they create that veil between worlds screen, they create that water dance, they summon the tiger like...hell Aseema's owl is just gonna what appear on the giant screen while we HEAR it taking off from a now empty boat?
I don't understand why they don't just end it then. I love RoL but this mess they're leaving behind....give me a farewell shirt and ornament and let me mourn in the way Disney's conditioned me. But I agree, since all the show's "magic" comes directly from the shaman it'll be a downright disaster in terms of story without them there. Wonder how long until it's Elsa and Moana on those boats. *sigh*This is just the first phase. Without the Shaman crews, the show becomes even more difficult to follow for average guests, if not totally incoherent. The show's mixed reception takes even more of a dive and that becomes justification to pull the plug entirely.
