Walt as an Audio-Animatronic
I haven't had a chance yet to listen to this week's podcast, but I was quickly reading the notes and came across the question on whether Walt should be made into an audio-animatronic. It's quite a coincidental question for me, as months ago one of my good friends told me that he had an idea for this and continuies to keep talking about it. Basically he wants to replace Tom Morrow in Innoventions and instead have Walt who could interact with guests and answer their questions.
It sounds like an intriguing concept, but at the same time I feel like there is something wrong with the idea of making a robotic Walt. It'd be as if the "frozen under PotC" rumors were indeed true and Walt had risen from the grave to speak at the parks once again - which seems a bit frightening, and somehow it also feels slightly offensive.
I'd love to hear other opinions on the topic - and I look forward to listening to this week's podcast!
