Exclusive Scoop! Disney Parks Will Never Be The Same Again…


I don’t know if this is a good thing. I don’t know if this is a bad thing. This might be a great thing. This might be the worst thing. This might take the magic to a whole new level. Generations from now will look back and talk about how funny it was… the way they were when they weren’t the way they are starting now. Or, it might strip them of their mystique and magicalness when you have your next up-close encounter with them. For right now, we’re only talking about the Fab Four. Mick, Min, Goof & Don. The evolution is upon us. Let’s hope this will be the most unbelievable thing to happen since the first time we all met them…


They will…


as in, moving mouths.

    I’m all for it.  C’mon, technology baby.  They should be wearing LCDs instead of masks!  Or holograms, yeah… holograms!

    Interesting.  Gotta say, if they had that quality to them when I was a kid I probably would have been a little less scared of their cold, emotionless faces.

    The real question is – will they speak in pre-recorded phrases (say 5 or 6 that the suit wearer can select by buttons in his glove) or will the wearer need to speak into a microphone that will then be interpreted by the mouth?

    I know that technology exists (it’s how the mouths moved in Team America) but now that requires the actor wearing the suit to also be able to do a vocal impression of the cartoon character.

    My guess is option a.
