    It's not the Magic Kingdom version but the version found in Hong Kong Disneyland and the Walt Disney Studios park. Still a nice addition!

      You mean Stitch Live! I love that in Paris, even though Stitch sometimes sounds a bit French! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jjR62xb4sk

          The AA figure in the OP's photo has been in Tokyo Disneyland for years ... in the Tiki Room.

          This is just a version of Turtle Talk with Crush with seats and a screen. Considering the crowds, and the size of the original building, it's likely they're constructing two identical theaters for it. It's okay for little kids, otherwise it's just a waste of space. It's the least expensive attraction they could have possibly chosen.

          The only good news is that it will draw people away from other stuff.

            A reasonable assumption given that the old Captain EO attraction sat approximately 350 Guests and the press release for Stitch says the theatre will hold 160 Guests.

              I wish this meant that he is leaving the Tiki Room.

                When I saw a Stitch attraction under construction I was hoping it would have been something new and innovative but as Fukai said, it is similar to Turtle Talk with Crush. I was also assuming it would be similar or exactly like Stitch's Great Escape in Orlando.

                This will keep some of the kids, maybe people in their 20-30's, entertained. I assume it will be in completely done in Japanese so it will alienate foreign guests, especially if there are jokes like the CM's do on Jungle Cruise. Maybe they will have a person who can speak multiple languages depending on who gets chosen to speak to Stitch but we will have to see.

                  It will be all in Japanese. I doubt non-Japanese speaking Guests will want to experience the attraction.

                    We can just remember fondly the Innoventions meet'n'greet with Stitch from 2005 and say yeah... not missing much and go on something else :P

                      The space could have been much better used. I'm hoping that this inexpensive attraction is just a placeholder until something better comes up.

                        Saw the video. Looks painful. Thanks for the warning.
