    And, the improvements just keep coming...[Fantasmic!]

    I, too, was at the first showing of Fantasmic! on Saturday, March 8.

    Maleficent did not transform into her dragon form, so I questioned a higher up sitting at the Tower B controls after Remember.

    He and his crew could not find the answer still, yet he dropped some MAJOR news!!!

    Coming 2009, Bucky will be undergoing a HUGE MAKEOVER!!! They are planning on making him much larger and grander than ever before. He cited the new technology in stronger metal and cheaper cost than in the early Nineties.

    His name was Craig, should anyone question the credibility of this thread. Not that anyone can locate him. I could've said Bob, Matt, or Joe.


    Take it for what it's worth.


    Fantasmic! is here to stay FOREVER!!!


    ***Many have stated the current pit housing Bucky is too small to accommodate a larger, more powerful Maleficent. Who's to say Imagineers will be using the current location in the first place?

    Furthermore, for all current and past Cast Members, what I have presented is not solid fact, but a mere conversation with someone at the Tower B main controls. Please do not force opinions which could be easily proven wrong. It's always good fun to hope for better things to come...

    Just as some said Disneyland would not be a success, financially and entertainment-wise, during its inception.

    As always, never say never.

    Yay! Thanks for the news!
    Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

    I was at the show tonight too. Since the lights are so bright now I was saying that Bucky needs a upgrade because you really can see all of the mechanical inner workings along with the stage hands. One other thing I noticed with the contrast with the old projectors and the new automated lights. The old video projectors were really dim compared to the new clay paky moving lights. Maybe they will be addressing that issue hopefully soon. Other than that it's great to see that they are still pouring money into Fantasmic.

    If you're talking about the price of metal, it isn't cheaper now than it was in the 90's....

    They could be thinking along the lines of say maybe carbon fiber. That wasnt around in 92, but is widely in use now. They could shape it anyway they want, and because of the light weight, they could move it around pretty fast.

    It's really surprising to hear that the projection didn't get brighter along with the lights, since so many upgrades have been done all around the park with new projection technology. Maybe that part will be coming soon, too.

    Roger: Not at any time. Only when it's funny.

    As long as they keep upgrading Fantasmic, hopefully they will get around to bringing the large Ursala barge back! I really miss that part....
