    Exclamation Breaking News On Dick Cook's Presentation At D23 Expo

    Dick Cook, Chairman of the Walt Disney Studios, has a presentation set for Friday at the D23 Expo. If you are a movie fan, this is shaping up to be an amazing event.

    We JUST got word that both Tim Burton and Robert Zemeckis will take part in the Cook presentation.

    And we understand that is just the tip of a very impressive iceberg.

    We hope to hear more soon.

    THANK GOD! I missed Tim Burton (and Johnny Depp) at Comic Con because I couldn't get in due to Twilight fans.

    Hopefully it features at least half of the content from my 8/16 scenario:

    I'd also expect the 9/11 WDS presentations to mirror their ShoWest and "Summer Heatwave'-esque events of the past with numerous announced and surprise celebrity appearances. They'll need to announce some in advance to nudge ticket sales and hold others back for the curiousity factor. Those events always feature promotional giveaways of the t-shirt/mini-poster/etc. variety.

    Some obvious names would include 'The Princess and the Frog's co-directors Musker and Clements, and possible performance as they did recently, with star Anika Noni Rose and composer Randy Newman and Jim Carrey and Robert Zemeckis representing 'A Christmas Carol'. Carrey could own that convention center in an Anaheim minute which he needs to. Bruce Willis' sci-fi thriller 'Surrogates' opens September 25th so that should receive a healthy push as well.

    Looking forward into next year's early releases they could pull from 'When in Rome' with Kristen Bell (also currently shooting another Disney comedy, 'You Again'), 'The Last Song' with Miley Cyrus, Greg Kinnear and Kelly Preston and of course, the 3D presentation of 'Beauty and the Beast' with producer Don Hahn and hopefully that film's stars and composer Alan Menken.

    And then the big guns of Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'Toy Story 3'. Some friendly arm-twisting could lead to walk-ons by Johnny Depp, Tom Hanks and Tim Allen. Everyone should hear Hanks when he gets on a roll in front of an adoring live audience!

    Plus Team 'TRON' with an updated promotional push, Nicolas Cage's live-action 'Sorcerer's Apprentice', a 'Rapunzel' presentation and hopefully an official start date (& appearances) inconjunction with the fourth 'Pirates of the Caribbean' film (just try to keep producer Jerry Bruckheimer off that stage) and the new Muppets movie would be a huge crowd-pleaser.

    That's just off the top of my head though, official announcements forthcoming.

    Not sure why they would be, since the Henson Co. no longer owns the Muppets, but I do know that big Muppet fans should still definitely make plans to attend the presentation!

    I wish I could be there for it, but unfortunately we won't be able to stay for Sunday.

    That's what these boards are for!

    "The Cheapest Muppet Movie Ever Made" has to be the Dumbest Movie Title Ever Written though. I've no interest in it, but then I've no interest in Disney's plans for Marvel characters either.

    I LOVED THE OPENING MEDLEY OF DISNEY MOVIES AND SONGS! Barnette Ricci (who concieved Fantasmic) arranged it and it was just awesome!, It was kind of sad when Miley performed the Climb no one really cared but when Johnny Depp decended on stage everyone screamed and cheered it was a great way to close the show.

    I really enjoyed the opening medley! I was so impressed that a live orchestra and choir kept perfectly in time with the video montage...AMAZING!!! Loved the Muppets (especially singing "Rainbow Connection") and of course, seeing Johnny in full Captain Jack regalia!
