You ready for Part One of the update? Here is a little concept art.
Here is a final draft for the ride logo. It is a much cleaner look, and has Maleficent replaced with her Dragon form.
The outside of the building is set up to resemble an animation studio. There is a sign with big bold letter spelling ANIMATION running down the building. There is also the attraction logo attached to the building. The building is lit up with colorful red and purple lights. Guest enter the attraction near the orange wall.
Here are the 3D glasses riders will be given upon boarding the vehicle. The design is inspired by Mickey's sorceror hat in Fantasia.
In the actual attraction these doors will be spaced out through different halls. Around each character's doors are framed pictures of themselves in memorable roles. The shadow effects are animated and not stationary. Donald Duck appears to be having an arugement and throwing a temper tantrum as we walk by. Mickey appears to be talking to someone on the phone about "Tonight's show" and how the "guest of honor", us riders, will be arriving shortly. We see Goofy inside the dressing room duing such things as slipping on a banana, electricuting himself with a blow drier, and combing his hair to try and get it to lay down (which keeps popping back up). When we grab the door handle to Goofy's dressing room he says, "Gorsh! Just a second pal. I'm not even dressed yet!"
As we get deeper into the studio we enter a dark hallway with a big glass window that overlooks a recording studio. Inside we see either Cinderella, Snow White, Aurora, or Jasmine, who talk the riders as well as interacts with someone off screen before singing a short version of songs from their movies. Each princesses' segment last about six minutes before she is finished and switches with the next. This is a continuous loop and works similar to the effect in Rock N' Roller Coaster. During busier times a Cast Member can even take the controls for the princesses' and have conversations with riders passing by.
Here is a quick piece on what the final battle might look like. The scene will be in a dark alley with only the moon light and the headlights of our cab lighting the street. The 3D effects are most notable here when the heroes run at Maleficent (who is an Audio-Animatronic hanging down from above the cab), and Stitch, Beast and Simba appear to leap off the front of our cab onto her.
That's it for now. I'll have picture up of the ride vehicle, additional scenes, a track layout, and other concept art sometime soon.
Please remember that I worked hard on these and anything I post relating to Disney's House of Mouse Attraction may not be used without my permission. Thanks, guys.
