    Re: World of Color Iger Steps In

    That is a GREAT article Chuck, really well done. However, I am very hesitant to cast any judgement on the show until I see the finished product on June 11 (or whenever I get in to see it after opening). Will it play well to a wide range of demographics? I hope so, but I don't know. It's a safe bet, though, that where the music may not connect with younger audiences the spectacle may pick up the slack and vice versa.

      Fantastic article.

      I keep asking myself why any audience member has to have an immediate recollection of the song for it to be valid. If it's the first time you hear it, won't you forever after associate it with World of Color and DCA? Wouldn't that be a good thing?

      I'm withholding judgment too, but I really have an honest fear that for the sake of current, relevant and now, they are bit by bit erasing the THEN. You know, the history of the park and the man who was responsible for it.

        Oh man, I just hope they don't mash up the Sherman Bros. tune with "hip" sound effects the way they did Walt's opening-day speech for the 50th Anniversary parade. That was HIGH-larious.... :lol:

          Nope. Not if, like Bob Iger, you're not a creative showman whose job is to entertain, but a marketeer aimed at selling your brand to a specific demographic. You are trained to sharpen the focus of your brand by playing only to your core demographic (in this case, tweens & teens) and specifically excluding other demographics.

          Iger's philosophy of modern corporate niche-marketing is the complete opposite of Walt's, as highlighted in this post.

            If the show sucks its because its too modern. Why can't they just combine both new Pixar stuff with old Disney Music and movies....it seems very easy to do to me.
            Happy Halloween!!!

                  I can't be the only one that despises whenever Disney tries to create "hip" versions of modern classics... In fact, I pretty much despise any music disney releases if it's not part of a animated soundtrack. I consider the early music to be timeless. Everything Disney makes now is dated as soon as the package is opened...

                  And honestly, even if the opening 35 or so seconds is heavy in nostalgia, how would the push people away from watching arguably the most epic water show in history? Just the special effects alone will probably draw people in, even the jaded "I hate Disney crap" locals.

                      The Cheetah Girls will probably be as relevant to young audiences of the day as The Mickey Mouse Club’s Spin and Marty is to today’s kids.
                      I have to disagree, since i am young and to me the mickey mouse club is REALLY relevant.

                        Good heebie jeebies can come from lots of sources. Nostalgic Disney creates good heebie jeebies.

                          Good article, though I wish we could still get some of the classic Disney stuff on the Disney channel even if it is only between midnight and 5am.

                            Heres a good way to think of it, take Mickey Mouse for example. Mickey 2010 looks very different than Mickey 1928 right? see Walt knew the importance of 'evoloving' Mickey to stay relevant to the current times. If he left Mickey looking like he did in 1928 then Mickey Mouse woulda been just like Betty Boop or Felix cat and forever stuck in the 30s.

                            Now apply that to World of Color, Iger doesnt want the old song from the old show, he wants to take the CONCEPT of World of Color and bring it into the new age. Much how Mickey evolved, Iger is evolving the concept of World of Color.

                            I think Iger made the right decision, while as a Disney fanatic Id LOVE to hear the original theme song played, however since this show is so high-tech and advance, it does seem kinda silly to start the show off with a grainy 1961 TV theme song.

                              Meaning no offense, to compare the brilliant Mickey designs of the post-Ub Iwerks era, with the blatantly marketing-driven Disney Channel generic-ripoff-of-everybody-else-on-the-music-charts style that's trendy among today's Disney execs, is ludicrous.

                              For those creatives who've had the experience of getting Team Disney Burbank notes, the idea of comparing the creative talent, showmanship experience and motivation of Bob Iger to that of Walt Disney is a bad joke.
