EPCOT’s New Harmonious Fireworks Show – I Don’t Understand

I watched the Disney Parks livestream on Wednesday evening together with around 18,000 of my closest friends. I have been quite fired up to see this new fireworks show as there has been a lot of buzz about it because the working day it was very first announced. It was mentioned to be the most important fireworks show that Disney has ever produced – how could that go improper?

The exhibit alone, in my view, is totally lovely with the projections on the large barges and the streams of mild and water coming from those people barges in the lagoon as very well as from the arms that go up in the air albeit wanting a little bit awkward still.

The factor I’m most confused about with this demonstrate ideal now is that it lined so a lot of Disney movies that have nothing at all to do with EPCOT. With a identify like Harmonious, I was expecting the present to be about bringing all of the countries in the globe alongside one another in ideal harmony. That may well seem tacky, but that was kind of my expectation right here. It’s possible it’s my fault for assuming that? The jury is however out there.

I necessarily mean, there ended up some movies showcased that suit in with EPCOT if you stretch your imagination a minor. Movies like Moana, Mulan, Coco, even Natural beauty and the Beast could match, but some of the movies just really don’t in good shape at all like The Lion King, Jungle Ebook, Princess and the Frog, and Brave. Now thoughts you, I enjoy individuals all as animated Disney movies, but I am obtaining a difficult time figuring out how they in shape into an EPCOT fireworks present.

I scrolled endlessly on social media after the livestream finished to examine what other Disney fans imagined about it and suffice to say, folks had been not extremely impressed with the show at all. I get it and I am even now sensation a bit baffled – even after sleeping on it.

Also, and I believe this was simply because of the angles Disney filmed at, but there did not look to be too numerous actual fireworks in last night’s livestream. Luckily, you can see them considerably better in Craig’s online video of the complete present which I’ve shared down below.

All in all, I am glad that the present is so wonderful, but I am not sure that we’ve obtained a further 20-calendar year exhibit in this article as we had with IllumiNations. I would have appreciated to see it’s possible some serious scenes from the international locations that are depicted in EPCOT. The unique languages in the clearly show had been outstanding but I wish there was a lot more of a tie in to additional of Disney‘s films that replicate the nations in the World Showcase. I would have been ok with that, but this demonstrate feels to me like it would be a better suit at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – not confident in which they’d set those barges, but I digress.

What are your views just after watching the new Harmonious fireworks present? I would really like to hear them so enable me know in the feedback. If you did not see it, give the video underneath a observe and see for oneself.
