Tomorrow, Disney California Adventure’s Turtle Talk with Crush attraction will be closed for a two-week refurbishment. The attraction will reopen August 21 with a completely new show, Tree Talk with Groot. According to a park spokesperson who spoke to us on the condition that we remain anonymous:
Tree Talk with Groot will bring the famous Guardians of the Galaxy character to life through interactive real-time cartoonography. Guests will be able to ask Groot questions about his friends, 1970s dance music, techniques for mass annihilation of enemies, the morality of whittling, or anything else they like!
Very little change is needed to convert the theater from a Crush to a Groot theme. In fact, the bulk of the attraction’s down time is not due to construction, but due to the large amount of time needed for the cast member portraying Groot to memorize the character’s extensive dialogue.
