When I was watching Princess and the Frog a couple weeks ago the WHOLE time there were scenes in the ‘Bayou’ I couldn’t ignore the similarities between the environment & even the way some of the side characters looked compared to the environment & characters in Splash Mountain.
Yes, I know that Splash Mountain is “Song of the South” characters & themed BUT especially considering the refurbishments of the past decade I would NOT be surprised if Disney decided to “update” Splash to the bayou & characters in the new “Princess and the Frog.”
I guess it depends how popular the movie is, etc. but look, Tiana & her bayou crew is already making themselves comfortable on the River close by Splash and that movie had an AWFUL lot of visual similarities to the attraction.
When you guys watch the movie keep that in mind & post your opinion after you see it. I am curious to see if anyone else catches those similarities. Even the music to me had a slightly suggestive “Splash” feel.
Hmmm, are they prepping us for a possible “re-do?”
* PS: I am NOT supporting this idea or suggesting it’s a good plan, I am just saying what I observed about the movie.
