Jungle Cruise completed Trapped Skipper scene with Skipper Felix
Posted: Monday June 7, 2021 10:29am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The recently installed "trapped skipper" scene at the Jungle Cruise now looks to be complete with the scene now animated and with audio effects.

The trapped safari of new characters, includes Felix Penchman XIII, the Skipper who led this expedition up a tree. Watch the video below for a look at the newly animated scene.

See the 4K video version of the new Jungle Cruise Trapped Skipper scene.

The new scene was installed overnight late last week.

The completed scene is a very close match for the concept art that was showed last year.

Disney announced back in January 2021 that it plans to update the Jungle Cruise with new additions to add "more humor, wildlife and skipper heart – and also reflect and value the diversity of the world around us."

The Jungle Cruise will be complete later this summer, and the ride will remain open throughout the work.

Now THAT'S backstory!

I'm pretty sure it's only one sunken boat moment. they just added more props to the scene, insinuating that the hippos are responsible for the crashed boat? this is actually pretty cool, cause hippos are one of the leading species of animals responsible for human deaths. And on top of that, they're refreshing the narrative and updating it for today's standards. I'm not sure there needs to be a wow moment. The wow moment will always be the interaction with the skipper and the jokes.

So...for the reimagining we have a gift shop, a re-cast version of the original gag with the rhino, a crashed boat full of chimps with junk floating in the water, and a sunken half of a boat with junk floating in the water... What is the next scene? and will it include more junk floating in the water? Chimps? a Gift Shop? None of this feels very original so far.... Waiting for the wow moment

Siobhan “Puffin” Murphy Growing up in the seaside town of Dingle, Ireland, Siobhan“Puffin” Murphy developed an affinity for the puffin penguins that nest in the rocks there. Her longtime dream of seeing the birds of the jungle firsthand inspired her to visit her distant cousin Alberta — but also quite possibly led her to get the whole group in a spot of trouble. “While there are many divergent opinions as to the inciting events that led everyone to their current predicament up on the pole,” explained Tubert, “many believe that it was Puffin’s love of exotic birds that drove Skipper Felix to get a little too close to an oxpecker perched on a particularly grumpy hippo.” https://attractionsmagazine.com/exclusive-disney-imagineers-talk-new-jungle-cruise-characters-s-e-a-connections-and-trader-sams/

Is "Puffin" in this instance a nickname for one of the passengers; slang for a heavy person and subtle WDI dig at guests that bottom out the boats causing them to sink? Is that the joke?
