^I'm not sure. The upcoming ride will be a different ride than the existing Peter Pan ride... maybe they'll have both... :shrug:

This is absolutely INSANE !!!!!

And they are actual FACE characters, not facial projections like the mess of Frozen Ever After etc etc ...

Is Belle walking whilst holding the lantern ?! The Imagineers have truly outdone themselves.

Thank you for sharing!!!!! That looks so amazing. Interesting that Belle + prince are dancing, not Beast.

Another thought I had watching this was, oh, they've already started the CGI remake of B&tB. :D It completely makes sense, and I've seen the TLM ride through on the Platinum dvd, but I guess I still didn't realize or remember the amount of computer animation used by the Imagineers.

I'm amazed by how realistic the characters look while remaining true to their animated counterparts. Belle truly looks like she's come alive from the 1991 movie right through the screen. I read that this is one of the most expensive park rides ever, if not the most expensive, and now I can see why. I'd love to see other classic rides get an update like this (like The Little Mermaid one).

I wonder what the dialogue will be like on the ride ? Will it alternate back and forth, or will it be kept 100% English language ( just using the film dialogue ) ... ?

It will probably be all Japanese.

Ride through of Tokyo’s BATB dark ride!!!

:o

Wow!!! It’s just amazingly immersive. The only drawback is the drawback with all trackless rides— there’s so much empty space. But the AA’s are amazing, and I love the parts of the story they chose to tell. :D

(also, I was so confused by the concept art with the ride vehicles being bowls— of course, you start in the kitchen!)

That's epic- thank you so much for sharing! I LOVE that the ride vehicles move around so much- it's like a ride within a ride! Those AAs are so beyond amazing.

The Tokyo Disneyland Beauty and the Beast ride truly is amazing and magical. The animatronics move so articulated and full of life, and the special effects are out of this world. The first Beast animatronic is scary! I thought guests rode in teacups, but you're right UmbrellaFish, they're bowls! I knew they were from "Be Our Guest" of course right from the get-go! Speaking of, the special effects and especially Cogsworth in wiggling jell-o animatronic are so amazing! And the animated shadows of the mob are amazing, and especially the Beast's transformation is amazing! The only drawbacks are yes, the space is way too empty. "Something There" looked rather ugly and pitiful to me. And also, they put roses instead of pearls/jewels on the trim on Belle's skirt, and frills on her neckline. Why?! It would look better being exactly like the animated original!

The tech part of the ride is absolutely astounding, don't get me wrong ... but it just felt so .... dull ? Huge spaces of nothing going on, almost like the ride is too small for the space that it's in ? Would have been better to have the same track system as Ariels Undersea Adventures in my opinion, as it suits the story telling vibe of the ride.

The AA are beautiful, truly. Just feels a bit like a wasted opportunity ?

Thank you Disney Duster :)

This sort of track would be of more use in a ride that is more immersive perhaps ? Like travelling through the forest in Tangled, or into the mines in Snow White or the jungle in Tarzan or something.

I'm not saying BATB isn't immersive, but the story is mainly set in a castle rather than a living, breathing entity like a forest or whatever, where you could potentially have a 360 environment.

I think you may be right it may work better in a forest setting, but I honestly don't know if any world would really make a good ride with this kind of track.

I pray for the day I can visit this place. I've only been to Paris Disneyland so far. The American ones are trash so not interested in those.

I really love all the new imaginings of Space Mountain. I love our current version in WDW, but would a design like what they're doing in Tokyo look really great next to Tron once it's complete? I know the purists would freak out, but it would seriously look awesome!

I agree with you 100%! The WDW design is classic, but the new concept art definitely is more of the Tron aesthetic.
