Rode MK's PotC tonight. Noticed three things...
- All lighting between the Blackbeard projection and the beach with crabs/skeletons was totally off and it was completely dark in that area. Absolutely 0 lighting after the Blackbeard projection until the beach scene. Seems logical to believe that that may be in an effort to hide things in that area that are not currently show worthy.
- There was a black scrim (opaque with current lighting) behind the beach scene, which would match the concept art that flynnibus shared and may be the "black cloth" that DisneyTwins mentioned.
- Probably unrelated to the mermaids rumor or either of the above, but there was a TON of fog in the scene where the Wicked Wench is firing on the Spanish fort - much more than I ever remember, and so much so that it made it difficult to see the Barbossa AA.
