NEW Concept-Art Released For The New Hong Kong Disneyland castle!

A NEW concept-art has been released for the new Hong Kong Disneyland castle, it’s the one above with a yellow color, the second picture below shows the previous rendering released. Not sure if we can say that it is better… in my opinion, still too many styles - and colors - mixed together...

That said, Disney Parks released more details about the transformation and new design of Hong Kong Disneyland’s castle: "As part of Hong Kong Disneyland’s multi-year expansion plan, the icon of the park will soon be reimagined and undergo a transformation, the first-of-its-kind at any Disney park!

The classic castle will draw inspiration from a variety of storybook influences and styles, with new thematic spires, domes and a design that reaches ever skyward. Features will be inspired by many of the Disney princesses, including special finial decorations on the spires such as Snow White’s apple, Cinderella’s coach and Belle’s rose. Original artwork and unique sculptures will add even more magic and fantasy.

Guests will be able to visit the all-new Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for transformations of their own and meet Disney princesses at the castle. The changes will also take the park’s entertainment to new heights with the premiere of a new daytime show and nighttime spectacular against the impressive backdrop.

Work on the castle will begin after the finale of the “Disney in the Stars” fireworks on January 1, and the expansion plan will continue to bring new entertainment to the park almost every year through 2023."

Agreed with you, both the colors and the styling are too schizophrenic. Sometimes, "less is more", but I don't that particular concept is one the Chinese would appreciate.

I live close to the original Disneyland, and on one level I am happy that the Anaheim castle won't have a clone. But on the other hand, in pursuing the belief that having something larger or more ornate is necessarily better, I think Hong Kong is ending up with a result that is less dignified.

Still better than the Shanghai monster. yet it seems the new designers don't have the same class as the old ones.
