    Re: Concept Art for Pirate's Lair

    Wow thanks so much for the update, but the concept image really seems like overkill on the whole pirates theme. I expected a few additions to the front stage, but it looks very transformed. With the pirate mast and everything, seems like they shouldn't even call it Tom Sawyer island anymore.

    Haha

    What kind of effect will this have on Fantasmic?

      Ugh. Enough pirates already! I LOVE POTC, but, this is getting out of hand.

        I agree, this pirate thing has gotten a bit out of control. However, looking at the concept art, I doubt all of that will really be there in the final version. For example, the flag pole with Jack Sparrow on it will completly ruin the stage for Fantasmic. Also, the drunk pirate on the shore, I dobut they will realistically put an AA out there. As for the cannons on the island, I thought they were supposed to shoot at "collapsable" chimney's in NOS. But hey, if they shoot the water, I am ok with that. I think this concept art was created during the phase of TSI into Pirate Island rather than TSI into TSI's Pirate Liar.

          The picture is not realistic, nor is it meant to be. But rather conveys the theme and energy of the project. The stage out front will be largely the same. There will be a circle of carts, no doubt selling pirate stuff, and the cannons. All things that easily be wheeled out of the way for fantasmic time. And no Pirate AAs outside, especially where guests can whallop them unsupervised, that would be a bad idea.

              lol good eyes!

              Yeah, the island isn't really going to look like that. It will be interesting to see the final product, though.

                If the energy, and Piratey immersion this concept art conveys were actually accomplished, I'd be cool with it.

                Unfortunately, I have a feeling we'll get a wattered-down, on-the-cheap version of this concept.

                The project should either be done properly, with the proper amount of funding and appropriate vision and creativity, or simply not done at all.

                Too bad I don't think we'll actually get that, considering there's only 2 months before the attraction is set to open, and the amount of time spent planning and Imagineering this project was essentially little-to-none.


                ...but anyway, I have to admit that concept art looks pretty dang cool, whether we get a finished product like it or not.

                    It just looks like Pirate characters from the ride floating in front of and doin' stuff on the island...

                    I agree. I love POTC as a classic attraction, and I love the movies. But I've had enough!

                      I too would say I see this more as promotional art than true concept art.

                        Well it is just concept art, after all!
                        I think they were trying to show all the new stuff on the island put in the forefront so one can see it. Like the two pirates fencing on the balancing rock, would not be on the dock, but rather in the middle of the island, but how else to show it, then in the forefront?
                        Good catch on the Mark Twain and the 50th banner!

                            I don't think the pirates and set props in the drawing are meant to be AA figures or permanent installations of any kind. I think the drawing represents the stunt show that they recently auditioned for. They called for sword fighting skills, zip line abilities, and athleticism, and that's what the concept art portrays. I'm sure the flags and masts are props that can easily be removed for Fantasmic and the other atmospheric pirates are probably ensemble cast members for the stunt show. Water explosions from cannonfire and a small boat would be in line with the show description as well, so I interpret this photo to be of the show more than the Pirate Lair makeover of TSI as an attraction to explore.

                              Something tells me it's a new banner that reads "Visit Pirate Island, now open in Pirateland, formerly known as Frontierland."
