    Nemo Song

    So.. Laughingplace has the song from the new musical...

    http://talesfromlp.com/lp/lotion/vid...CLIP4-high.WMV

    And it turns out, despite what DL fans have led me to believe, Anne Hamburger doesn't seem so callous and evil.

    What do you guys think?

    Sounds good...I don't know about callous, but she does seem a bit out of touch. Hopefully Nemo is more like Aladdin than the atrocious Snow White musical...and the "didn't you see Jaws?" line makes me think it will be.

    Re: Nemo Song

    Sounds like this new musical might have some promise. Based on the song, I would definitely check it out once it opens...and that's coming from a guy who usually doesn't do stage shows...

    One word for the song... boring. I stopped watching the video half way thru to avoid falling asleep. If this is what we have to look forward to in regards to shows at WDW... then bring on more thrill rides, please. And Ms. Cheeseburger needs a makeover.

    *sigh* I should have expected that from you... It is at WDW after all.

    Anyways, I like it.

    Re: Nemo Song

    OMG. I just watched the whole thing. They are going to have big problems with this show unless they cut these songs down or spice them up.

    1) Kids don't know these songs so they won't necessarly be as engaged as they would with a musical they know (although I'm sure they'll love the sets, costumes, characters, etc)
    2) The songs seemed too long
    3) Anne Hamburger is WAY off when she says that themepark shows should be 30 minutes. A kids show should not be over 20 minutes. It is hard to keep a young one still (and away from a bathroom) for 30 minutes in a theme park .

    I have hope that they will pull this off, but was not personally impressed with the music that they presented to the press.

    I have a feeling that someone may have set Anne up on this one. She doesn't look, act, or sound Disney. So why did they pick her to do this press event? I think that someone who is worried about the show told her it would be a good idea. If the press and Disney fan sites hate it, it still gives them time to fix the show before Anne drops another of her expensive bombs.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I thought it was well done, but just my opinion! Wolfette who is older can handle a 30 minute Musical, but then again she likes Musicals! You have to picture the stage setting along with costumes, I think it will work. Can only hope to see it on our WDW MC trip in October, worth it I think!
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    How long is the Lion King show at DAK? That one really puts butts in seats and it's communicated that people can't leave once it's started either. Between seeing a show live and watching several recordings, I've never heard a bunch of children crying about needing the bathroom.

    Re: Nemo Song

    They are expecting kids to enjoy a musical that they don't already know the words to. It isn't like they can sing along. All of the successful Disney park musicals use music that the kids already know from the movies. I could very well end up being wrong (and hope I am), but this could very well be a big problem.

    On the positive side, I love the Little Mermaid show at Disney/MGM. If they do that style of blacklight show it could look quite stunning.

    Re: Nemo Song

    I'm excited! I like it because the song is new... but it does quote A LOT from the film. But what sold is the puppets. I think you all know how much I LOVED Tarzan Rocks! for the music and choreography so naturally I was worried about a Nemo replacement. But I know the puppeteer talent that Disney and the Orlando area has. This will be great! I'm so excited to see it and hear more. I'm glad they have such fun songs. That with the picture the presenter was stressing so much at the start probably means a great set too.

    Oh... and that is what I mean by puppets = excitement. TITW will be enclosed now so we can only hope.

    Re: Nemo Song

    Hummm... Dusty, I haven't seen it in a while, but I don't think Nemo actually HAS any musical numbers and that hasn't hurt it financially. Disney on Ice has made shows out of both Nemo and Incredibles (ditto for the lack of musical numbers) and so the company isn't completely unaware of what they're doing. I think they've probably seen the numbers those shows have done and are using it for a guide here, that there is an audience.

    And it's not like they can advertise to the adults "from the composer of Avenue Q!" That probably would turn parents even further away from the show...lol.

    Re: Nemo Song

    Before watching this, I had no idea what to expect. I mean, they have never done anything like this before.

    However, after watching the whole thing, I can honestly say that I really like this song. I mean, sure, it's not as good as Alan Menken's songs, but on it's own I really like this song & have a lot of hope for this attraction. If all the songs are like this, I think it should be a really great show. (Although I could have done without the hoochi coochi comment )


    3) Anne Hamburger is WAY off when she says that themepark shows should be 30 minutes. A kids show should not be over 20 minutes. It is hard to keep a young one still (and away from a bathroom) for 30 minutes in a theme park .
    I have two major problems with this statement.
    1) Saying that a show shouldn't be more than 20 minutes is wrong in my opinion. The old Hunchback show in the Studios (which I would probably say was one of the most loved shows in all of WDW) was 32 minutes long. Festival of the Lion King (which is currently the most popular show) is 28 minutes long. Nemo's predecessor (the just as popular Tarzan Rocks) was 30 minutes long. In the Studios, the fairly popular Doug Live was 30 minutes long and of course the beloved Fantasmic is 25 minutes long.

    2) This future attraction should not be called a kids show. That would be like calling Festival of the Lion King a kids show or Fantasmic a kids show. This is a show for all ages & will be enjoyed by all ages.

    I didn't say that it did. My point is that they are creating songs for this show that the kids don't already know. It could be a very long 30 minutes in the dark listening to songs that the kids don't already know. Unless they do a much better job than what they showed in that clip, I don't think the kids are going to get into it. Granted, my standards are a lot higher than your average 5 year old, but it could very well turn out to be a problem for this show. That's all I'm saying.

    Like I said before, I hope that I'm wrong. I want every disney ride and show to be a bit hit. I LOVE Disney. But they have made a lot of mistakes in the last few years. Anne hasn't exactly been a huge hit machine and is one of the last holdouts of the Pressler/Harris era.
