Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon just posted to Instagram a couple of pictures of himself in a motion-capture suit, working in NBC's studios in New York on video for the new 4D attraction.
Fallon also posted additional shots on Twitter:
Thanks to @CyndieLouLou and Industrial Light and Magic (@ILMVFX) for most amazing experience. @UniversalORL 2017. pic.twitter.com/DgXFy7HN87— jimmy fallon (@jimmyfallon) November 5, 2015
Also in 2017, Universal Studios Florida will open its Fast & Furious attraction in the space formerly occupied by the Disaster! attraction. Over at Islands of Adventure, Skull Island: Reign of Kong opens next year.Tweet
Anyway, business is business. ILM has always been hired out by all of the production studios. No reason for that to stop.
Now, after several years of amazing growth of the parks with the infusion of cash from Comcast, this ride gets panned by several of you and you've barely gotten a whiff of the details. Really?
Time to get a little perspective folks. Some of you are sounding like the outlaw standing on the gallows in the old west who complained because he wasn't going to be hung with a new rope.
Now that Disney owns them, it is no different.
If they nail the humor, and the ride experience is thrilling enough for adults, but not so aggressive that younger or older folks are tunerd off, I think this will be a winner.
Seems risky to me...but, it's not my money.
"What?! A Soarin clone?! Really?! Damnit, Disney, why ya gotta be so cheap and lazy?!"
Universal announces plans for Race Through New York, a Soarin-style ride,
"I don't see what you're complaining about. Universal is clearly trying something new."
ILM also does the special effects for all the Jusrassic park movies and King Kong movie/360. They are a premier special effects co. and there is no reason why they would reject big business from Universal Studios.
