    Where's ChurnaZurg Tower?

    I learned that the wierd metal tower pillar thing, that was supposed to be used for Zurg and Churnabog projections, were not used in the show yet. Is there something wrong with it? it's hanging all alone and lazy in the water. Will it ever be used, maybe for something else?

    They only built it for the Chernabog, it was never designed for Zurg. It's still sitting in the lagoon.

    I am more curious as to what happened to those butterfly fountains!!!

    Those wavy curved lines are supposed to represent the Chernabogs body/abs and his head is a mini-water screen that is projected on top, just in-case somebody didn't know what it was.

    If you skip to 2:50 you can see the butterfly fountains in action, they were custom built for the Spring Sprite and Pocahontas Scene and were tested thoroughly but never appeared in the final show.

    It's in the show, you're just not looking hard enough.

    They were supposed to be used for the Pochahontas segment. If you look at the concept art the has Pochahontas projected on fountains with the leaves in the wind, you will notice in the foreground a couple fountains that look like butterflies.

    It's not being used. I believe that the design team didn't like how Chernabog ended up looking, so the nixed the idea for now. I'm sure we will see the tower used at some point though.

    They're not using "Baldy" (the chernabog structure) right now. When they do you would see it. He will be used during the Night on Bald Mountain sequence. He'll show up eventually because he was a fairly large investment.

    lol thnx.

    And thank you kpeek for the accurate information. I never understood why the tower looked that way, but you made it make sense, and I also hope the butterfly fountains find their way into the show sometime soon:they are so cool looking.

    I'm hoping they do eventually work the tower back into the show. Would bring back some more of the paper animation, which the show lost a lot of when Alice was cut.

    It may be that it limited what they could do with the animation of Chernabog. But, even in the animation they did use in the sequence, his animation didn't appear to be very pronounced.
