If you've been lucky enough to go to Disney or any of it’s parks, you’ll remember it was a place of joy and pure happiness. Yet there was a certain lifeless quality about the animatronics.
Movies on the other hand are becoming more and more realistic. Productions want bigger and better stunts every movie release and CGI advancements are moving at lightning speeds. Cinemas offer 3D and 4D viewing experiences and Disney parks want to keep up. They want their park entertainment to be just as spectacular as the movies and using stunt robots makes a damn sight better sense than using humans.
Disney understands what their audiences expect and Disney being Disney will want to exceed all expectations. If the future is robot stunt performers, then Disney will find a way to make it happen. Walt believed in the impossible and the impossible is only possible if you dare to dream.
Don't worry. If you're a stunt performer you won't need to hang up your pads just yet...
I'll leave you with the echoing words of John Connor:
"The future's not set. There's no fate but what we make for ourselves."
Hasta la vista, baby.
