    Missed opportunity. They should have had Lafou narrate this story as if he was selling the idea that he was responsible for hooking them up to the audience. Then the continuity errors would seem comical instead of cringeworthy.

    Hmm... during the first scene with the stormtroopers, did anyone paid attention to what's going in the background? It appears to be Han Solo from the time before a New Hope trying to talk his way out of trouble with the stormtroopers before fleeing on the Falcon as the Star Tours riders briefly follow. My question is, "who shot first?" LOL Pay very close attention in the background at 00:56 Hmm... it would appear Han shot first. Either way, he and the Star Tours riders make a run for it

    Hey, I've got to apologize for my judging your regular intro a little while back as I was new and hadn't had a good enough chance to get a grasp on your unique stand-up-style broadcasts, which are really growing on me. I now appreciate the off-the-cuff nature of your style and especially appreciate how you go above and beyond, such as with your recent trip to Tokyo. Keep up the great work, and best of luck in the future!

    Everyone complaining, but this is the CORRECT way to do an attraction of this nature tbh. Like, why would i go to Disney World and just expect to wait to watch something i could anywhere else? The new scenes and comedic twist makes it a SHOW, an ATTRACTION. Some people will walk out saying it was bad A good amount of people will walk out saying it exceeded their expectations, and was good (cause lets all be honest we werent expecting them to do much more than copy and paste the sing along videos from RU-clip) But most everyone regardless of opinion on the lefou topic, will leave thinking "well that was interesting", And frankly, thats better than walking out saying "wtf i couldve just watched those scenes on RU-clip why did i take time out of my day to experience this???" (I know, ironic since im posting this on the video showing the new content im arguing you wouldnt see otherwise, but u get what im saying, pretend youre a tourist experiencing this attraction for the first time and you never even thought to search online for the new scenes) Like ngl, this is alot more appealing than "Impressions de France" if youre gonna lecture me or try to teach me, at least make it fun and engaging like many other epcot experiences, and if you arent going to give me that, than id rather have this uneducational attraction unrelated to the world showcase. I came to have fun, not to watch a documentary/tourism advert

      Tim 16 I agree with your opinion about the attraction being entertaining, I don’t think it’s a bad show, but I do agree with some fans involving continuity errors and possibly execution of the idea. The idea of the attraction was nice, but it was a poor execution, I imagined it would’ve been lefou interrupting the show in a attempt to tell the story with his own “ twist” making it entertaining in theory. That’s just my opinion anyways lol

    Anyone whining that the kids are torturing the Droid, the company made the Droid to play with kids. Watch the documentary One day at Disney.. The creator of the Droid says that she wanted kids to play with it. In her next iteration of the Droid, she's making it more interactive with latest AI. I could get it if the kids broke the Droid, but otherwise this Droid maybe meant to be playful

    • 1992disney
      1992disney 5 days ago

      @Miss Smims That would be impossible, unfortunately. And tbh, I actually don't think that Dr. Doppler would look any good as a walk-around character because the performer would have to wear a mask since he looks like a dog (he's called a Canind and he's actually the same alien race as Amelia, btw). It would just make him seem ugly and unappealing instead.

      1992disney 5 days ago

      I know! It's so appalling! It makes no sense! It's full of continuity errors! Why did Disney have to make LeFou a good guy?! What's wrong with him being bad?! He's Gaston's sidekick and many, many sidekicks of villains are supposed to be loyal to their masters! What was the whole point of changing his character completely?! What's the reason for this?! He also just ruins the tone of the sing-along! They made this version more comedic than the original classic with him having way more screentime, which totally goes against what made the film such a timeless masterpiece and why it got nominated for Best Picture in the first place! Why would he want to help Belle and the beast fall in love with each other?! Why would he hate Gaston all of a sudden after Belle rejects Gaston from the failed wedding proposal?! Just why?! This "twist" and "real story" of Beauty and the Beast is nothing but an insult and disgrace to one of Disney's greatest animated films of all time! Why couldn't they just make it a regular sing-along?! Why did have the feeling that the sing-along version needed a twist and explain what "actually" happened behind-the-scenes throughout the whole entire movie?!
