tsom, my ideas for a Broadway version always had the animals stay animals. But they weren't as involved as the Disney movie, this time it was always, always human drama, with the main characters. The animals would be more like...well, if you saw Into the Woods...except better and more animated and involved than that! Your idea sounds neat, but I don't think it's best. That is what I think, though. Still a rather interesting idea.
Haha, thanks Super Aurora.
The trailer...yeesh. Okay, sorry, maybe I'm picky, but I thought almost all Platinum trailers have been better than these Diamond ones. Sleeping Beauty's was a killer trailer. She always has killer trailers. Probably to make people who don't know the film think it's exciting. LOL, no, SB's exciting.
The trailer starts out nicely, but the "clock chime countdown" music could be louder and more powerful, and we should probably see Cinderella transform there, and what's with the crappy pink light glare being used as a crappy transition? I think just a giant burst/splash of magic (Disney dust) would be much better, or a flash of light, not that glare. The modern music that comes in does sound crappy until it turns into the end of the signature "Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes" song. If only it weren't made with modern instruments, and instead we just got those notes and chords, with some more classy instruments, then I could really see something.
The clips look both as good and as bad as the old 2005 restoration. Bold, bright colors...and yet the messed-upness like some of the Disney dust gone from Cinderella's transformation. I don't think, and also hope, that these clips are not the final restoration but a Disney restorer had said they weren't making a new restoration for this release.
Le sigh. And yet, JOY AND EXCITEMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I guess the purple pink background was kinda nice, and the logo. A sweet logo, even using an actual image of the slipper straight from the movie. Super nice touch.
