This was a few months ago, it's better but still not 50% the show that Flights of Wonder was. They're still faced with the problem of pre-recorded lines from Dug and Russell. They also take too long before the actual birds come out and do the demonstrations.I’m not sure when the different rewrites happened, I love the old flights of wonder show and saw it a couple times per trip. The new show I saw twice and said never again but I was walking by the theatre and a show was just starting so I went in. I was pleasantly surprised! They basically fixed it as far as I’m concerned. One of the old guano joe guides was a wilderness explorer leader... (the amazing former adventures club / Gus the bus driver / officer Peabody) -this worked wayyyyy better than the random cultural guide. Also more birds and better pacing. I still liked the old show better but this is fine.
At least they knew the show needed help and fixed it.
If they're insistent on keeping UP characters in the show, they need to eliminate Russell. He's one of my favorite Pixar characters of all time, but he simply doesn't work as a talking character that can't change his facial expression.
