    Nemo crabs

    Are those crabs in the Nemo lagoon a nod to the old sub rides? It just dawned me they're actually realistic, and look nothing like Pixar's.

    Re: Nemo crabs

    it seems like it dosent it?

    are the other animatronics in the ride going to be realistic, or are they going to be nemoistic?

    i cant wait!

    Re: Nemo crabs

    It was my understanding that many of the Nemo Submarine Voyage's show elements were going to be the same or in the same style as the "old" sub ride. That the Nemo elements were going to be mainly an overlay of sorts. Last I heard Guests were going to start out the attraction very much like the old one...heading out on a research trip to find an underwater volcano. Along the way you join up with the Nemo cast as they (and you) play cat-and-mouse with Nemo. That sort of thing.

    But most is going to be Nemo and friends in a "real sea" setting, not all cartoony. So don't be surprised to see familiar "real" crabs and such just like the old sub attraction had.

    This is good news! I think this ride would work much better with Nemo and the rest of the Nemo main characters in a natural setting. I think the natural setting will ground the observer and make it easier for them to believe that a cartoon fish is just as natural.

    i dont like it.

    i understand that this is all speculation, so this is not directed twards your post/opinion.

    they should create a show as stunning as the movie it self (or at least make a good attempt at it).

    Finding Nemo was one of the most beautiful and visually stimulating movies of all time.
    TDA has the money, why cant they make it all tie together?!

    i get the nostalga factor of the original attraction, but step it up!

    can you imagine what it would feel like to look through one of the portholes and see the wrecked ship and all the water mines floating in the distance?
    i know they dont have the space, but its all perspective!

    i will be honestly upset if the new sub voyage is too similar to the original.

    Re: Nemo crabs

    I seem to remember seeing a picture somewhere of backstage Disney where one of the old AAs from Sub Lagoon was being stored, and if I remember correctly, it was two fighting crabs of similar size; but I think they were blue. It would make sense, since they and maybe a Nemo in one of the tiki statues are the only AAs anyone has seen? Anyone know more about this?

    What they are trying to do is make it somewhat fit with TL. Having you journey into the depths of the ocean and instead of "something goes wrong" we encounter some familiar fish. I love the idea, it actually made me very happy to see realistic crabs. And as far as a giant wrecked sub with mines, I do believe that is a show scene in the ride. The ride will have many similiar scenes to the film. Sunken sub scene, angler fish, jelly fish, turtle current, and even the fishtank gang at a real valcano.

    For the first time, I actually am starting to feel good about this attraction.

    Re: Nemo crabs

    Have you seen the Jacque Custo type sendup in the bonus features to the Nemo DVD... really, really well done. It's basically an undersea documentary by Custo's son, I think, in which the overlayed Nemo characters keep popping up and kinda getting in the way of Custo's narration... really clever and funny, and educational, too... which seems like the perfect match to this ride. I really hope that's the direction they're taking with this.

    Re: Nemo crabs

    Now that I see the pics, I agree that they don't look anything like Pixar...More like the original, so I believe it is a homage....Why is there an upside down "B" behind the crabs?

    Re: Nemo crabs

    I've taken a lot of Marine Biology classes (seriously) and except for the talking part a lot of Finding Nemo was fairly accurate. Most of the fish and even coral are real species. In some ways the AAs that they put in from the movie will be a lot more realistic that what was in the lagoon before. A great white shark (no matter how exaggerated) is a lot more realistic than a looping sea serpent or some flirty mermaids.

    True. Real mermaids, in fact, are quite frigid.
