Walt Disney World announced today that it is changing the film montage that concludes The American Adventure show in Epcot's World Showcase. Even Disney Imagineers have criticized how out-of-date the montage has become in recent years, as it lionizes once-admired and now-disgraced American icons such as Lance Armstrong and Tiger Woods.
Now that Disney is converting The American Adventure theater to a new digital projection system, the company has approved going ahead with a new film to show off that system. The updated finale now will include Academy Award winning composer John Williams, astrophysicist and science advocate Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and ballerina Misty Copeland, according to Disney. (No word on who is out, but I think it's more likely that the new show will feature Universal's Minions than Lance Armstrong.)
Disney also has re-recorded a new orchestration of the attraction's theme song, "Golden Dream." (I'm guessing to work better with the new film.) You can see the changes to The American Adventure when the show returns from its refurbishment later this month.Tweet
So that’s how they are picked. Seems more like the selection process is political.
Wow I actually that that was the joke.....a pretty clever one because they all incorporate "a bar" :-).
They all "walk into a bar"!!
Composer....A "BAR" of music...
Astronomy... A "BAR" is a unit of measure for atmospheric pressure
Ballerina..."BARRE"....that horizontal bar used for stretching
The American public strongly embraces “Alternative Facts”, questioning the accuracy of previously recorded/printed/broadcast live statements and dismissing ‘scientifically proven facts’ as the new norm.
CELEBRATE THE NEW NORM!
