What would I like to change?
SO MUCH OF IT.
I brought in some people the other week.... and took them to see it. They're older so they love fireworks and water shows... and they were completely bored and wanted to leave. WANTED TO LEAVE.
This same couple just watched the fireworks thinking they were going to be really disappointed but it made them super happy.
World of Color did the OPPOSITE.
Why is that?
The over reliance on film clips rather than using the water fountains paired with music. For people who don't know the movies, they're not going to have a big attachment. But if you use the music and awesome water choreography, you'll keep BOTH the fans and the passive guests interested.
Mist screens should only be used as transitional and background elements... not the main focus. As it is right now, it's completely reversed and it's exhausting. We've all seen the movies before and we love them.. but seeing them on water ISN'T better.
Also... why the heck is Mufasa dying in the middle of this show? It has no story. It has no purpose. That's probably the biggest crime this show is doing in my opinion.
A lot of you have made great points and good places to cut or add... I don't want to get too into that because I can go on and on. But this show doesn't work. It needs to be fixed.
Is it still cool? yes of course. I still like it. But it's broken.
