    Dr Facilier coming to the park for Halloween

    Disneyland Paris has released some publicity shots of a new villian for Halloween. Dr Facilier from Disney's Princess and the Frog will be part of this years Halloween event.

    The picture's may be viewed on the DLRPToday Twitter page. DLRP Today (DLRPToday) on Twitter

    I have to credit the park for one thing. Its nice to see them using new Characters and Dr Facilier is one of the newer villians. The Princess and the Frog was I felt was actually I fairly good movie and I'm happy to see the park introduce the Characters into the park.

    I like the picture. Too bad Disneyland Paris doesn't have any New Orleans-esque area for him to hang around.

    Aw man, why can't the US have Facilier as a full-out walkaround instead of limiting him and Louis to those shows that only ran for a brief time?

    Facilier is the first real Disney Villain in ages and I too am glad to see him be added to the line-up for Halloween. Has Louis appeared in DLP yet?

    He does look like Facilier. If you squint your eyes, tilt your head a little to the left and hold up a picture of Dr. Facilier.


    All joking aside, great to hear them adding him as a walkabout.

    Well, hey, at least the costume's pretty neat. I'm sure they could sell a ton of Facieller hats to the hot-topic crowd if they brought him to DL full-time.

    Re: Dr Facilier coming to the park for Halloween

    The frog movie was great and the Dr is a classic Disneybadguy. Great addition to the park.
    Would be cool if they could have him appear when itīs dark... with smoke, shadows, lasers and stuff... like fantasmic. They should have Fantasmic! with the Dr!

    Re: Dr Facilier coming to the park for Halloween

    He really needs the white voodoo face paint to make the look, since it would cover up a lot of the differences in appearance. Still, glad to see they are doing something with the character, since I have yet to find any merchandise featuring him.

    The other villains have rubber heads that are on model, maybe they should've gone in that direction with Facilier as well. In any case, great to see them giving attention to this character too, instead of just focusing on the royal couple from the film.

    i would agree except that I think that a character such as Jafar would make a great face character (with the right actor of course) and while they were changing that they could get rid of the rubbish stuffed Iago from his shoulder and give the parrot his own rubberhead.

    And on this subject, I also believe that Jack Skellington should be completely rubberheaded instead of half-and-half. The whole large-head/small-mouth thing just looks wrong.

    Guys relax, I believe auditions are still on going for a performer to play Dr Facilier in the park. The person in the photo is being used for publicity shots only.
