    No, I don't think so. That's just stock footage from Walt Disney world's Fantasmic they decided to use in the Summer Nightastic ads.

    Our Dragon is supposed to be impressive though! I think it should look a little bit more like it did originally in Sleeping Beauty also.

    That is a still from the original commercial for the Disneyland Fantstmic. They re-used it for the new commercials.

    What do you need big arms for when you have a wingspan twice your height?

    Ha ha, I knew it would be this picture. Yes and no to the question- The dragon should look similar, with a full, animated body (although to my understanding the arms will be positioned in one place the entire time). This is a miniature used for promotion of the original Fantasmic! and, as others said, the clip has been re-used for Summer Nighttastic.

    About those stubby arms... I think they went with a more scientific approach in designing that dragon. Sort of like a T-rex... that breaths fire and has wings. Anyways, I'll be glad if ours is more like Malifiacent, who needs a realistic dragon in a show taking place in a famous animated characters dream?

    That is not even Disney World's dragon. It was a miniature puppet they made for the commercial. Disney World's dragon is similar to DL's old dragon just a little more detailed.

    To not look utterly ridiculous.

    If you watch a video performance of Fantasmic, or see it in person, watch the animation during the transformation scene. The model they showed in the press junket looks a lot like the animated shots of the dragon on the "castle,"
