    Smile Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives details for 2011 Expo released

    D23 has released information on what to expect from the Disney Archives at this summer's big D23 Expo. Sounds like they have doubled the size of the exhibit which (along with the Parks and Resorts) was a highlight of the last Expo in 2009.

    FROM JACK SPARROW’S BLACK PEARL TO WALT DISNEY’S LIMOUSINE, “TREASURES
    OF THE WALT DISNEY ARCHIVES” RETURNS TO THE D23 EXPO,
    SHOWCASING MORE THAN 80 YEARS OF DISNEY HISTORY


    12,000-Square-Foot Exhibit Will Feature Imagery, Costumes, Props and More
    From Beloved Disney Movies, Television Shows and Characters

    BURBANK, Calif. – May 26, 2011 – D23: The Official Disney Fan Club and the Walt Disney
    Archives are proud to announce the return of the “Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives” exhibit
    to the D23 Expo. During the D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center, August 19-21, 2011,
    the 12,000-square-foot exhibit, which has doubled in size since the 2009 Expo, will give fans
    unprecedented access and insight into more than eight decades of Disney history.

    The expansive exhibit will showcase the crown jewels of the Walt Disney Archives Collection,
    many of which will be displayed publicly for the first time. The most memorable props, set pieces,
    photos, costumes and memorabilia from beloved Disney films such as the Pirates of the Caribbean
    films, Alice in Wonderland, National Treasure, Tron (1982), The Rocketeer, Pinocchio and Who
    Framed Roger Rabbit will allow fans to enjoy and explore their favorite movies and characters like
    never before. In addition, the show floor will feature one-of-a-kind pieces including a 23-foot model
    of The Black Pearl, used in both Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest and Pirates of the
    Caribbean: At World’s End, the Dharma Initiative Volkswagen van from the ABC television series
    LOST, and Walt Disney’s limousine.

    “Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives,” located on the second floor of the convention
    center, will feature numerous special exhibits including: an exhaustive collection of props, costumes
    and set pieces from ABC’s groundbreaking series LOST; a Mickey Mouse exhibit featuring the
    original Mickey Mouse doll, Mousegetar, and a retrospective of memorabilia; a House of de Vil
    exhibit commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the animated film 101 Dalmatians, featuring a Fan
    Art Gallery as well as costumes and props from the live action film, which is celebrating its 15th
    Anniversary; and a tribute to Zorro, the first ever episodic television series, featuring the largest
    collection of costumes and vintage memorabilia ever exhibited.

    “This is truly a one-of-a-kind display that showcases the enormous creativity and imagination
    of Walt Disney and the artists who have created unforgettable moments in entertainment history,”
    said Steven Clark, head of D23. “From Mickey Mouse and Walt Disney to Pirates of the Caribbean
    and Wizards of Waverly Place, the ‘Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives’ will truly be something
    for Disney fans of all ages.”

    Here is what the Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives looked like at the last Expo in 2009:

    Notice the velcro that helped attache the disk to the back of the costume

    And that was a small part of the exhibit as it appeared in 2009. 2011 version is just around the corner.

    The exhibit was nice, I hope they have some more room this year to showcase some of the other pieces from the Walt Disney Archives.

    I wonder if they're going to prevent everyone but Fishbulb from taking photos of the exhibits like they did last time...
