And Disney has a new Train Ride.... Just saying.... With Screens..
With that being said, I think it's important to let your creative people come up with the solution that best fits your project. If it's an animatronic with a digitally projected face, then I'm fine with that. The Lumier animatronic at New Fantasyland for instance kind of blew my mind. I was so impressed with that. And I love the 7 Dwarfs Mine Train projected faces too.
I really don't care if it's purely animatronic or if the faces are projections. As long as it works and serves the purpose of the theming, I give it two thumbs up.
Harry Potter-Sorting Hat/DragonThe MummyT-Rex and Dinosaurs3 Little Pigs in ShrekMen in Black (Aliens) Gringott's Goblins and soon to be roof mounted DragonE.T. (can't belive they kept these going for so long)
This makes me so excited to see what Universal has up their sleeve in the next year or so. (not half a decade or more like the other theme park(s) that shall not be named)
A home run! Universal Creative and the team should be proud!
KUDOS to WWW for attempting something cool like their Seven Dwarf projected faces to show all the character that was too complicated and/or too expensive to create before.
Obviously I am a proud Disney Geek, but I also deeply love Universal. I am very excited about all their new developments both in Orlando and Los Angeles. I loved the Transformers "Video" ride so much I rode it four times in-a-row thanks to that VIP pass.
