    Re: What Maleficent Promotion Should Disneyland Do?

    I think the coolest thing would be if they could get a "life size" dragon to fly down the Tinkerbell line during the fireworks. I also think a villains parade (led by Malificent the person at the front, and Malificent the dragon at the end) would be a lot of fun. I don't think Disney has ever done one before.

    Hey! What do you think this is, Six Flags? Disney is a 1st class organization. They're not going to scotch tape a dragon to the castle. I'm sure they'd splurge on duct tape instead.

    This would be wonderful.

    I like the idea of vines covered in thorns crawling up the side of the castle, but as a Halloween decoration, not a movie promo.

    I agree, from this trailer the film has the same look/feel of Burton's Alice, Oz, and others. But I will say, the clips they showed at D23 make it look legit. I was pretty excited after watching them.

    As it so happen, WDI has been working on a flying dragon prototype.

    Maleficent's castle and a dark ride dedicated to Sleeping Beauty would be AWESOME.
    Not only would it be a MUCH better use of all the space that the Fantasyland Theatre occupies (in my opinion), but it would also be wonderful to have a fuller attraction based on Sleeping Beauty, a truly classic Disney film. Not to mention having the exterior as Maleficent's castle... finally a strong villain presence in the park in the form of physical theming.

    When I was at Magic Kingdom in May a CM was talking my cousin and I's ears off about how cool the dragon was.

    Sorry this is off topic, but I noticed Bob has taken over the comment section on the trailer.

    Re: What Maleficent Promotion Should Disneyland Do?

    I know I'll be tarred and feathered for thinking a business should promote their product and try to increase sales (heaven forbid!), but I voted for ears. Food options seems a little ridiculous, but I would love a hat with her horns on it. I'm not a fan of parades or shows for the most part, and a ride is a bit of a stretch for a "promotion", so bring on the pitchforks!

    Re: What Maleficent Promotion Should Disneyland Do?

    I honestly would be surprised if they didn't have Maleficent ears floating around the parks.

    I think the most likely "promotion" is going to be merchandise and maybe an extended preview in the Muppet theater, similar to what they did with Frankenweenie last year.

    They released Maleficent ears (I think it was for the Villains Friday the 13th thing)

    Re: What Maleficent Promotion Should Disneyland Do?

    I still wish they'd do a Maleficent Thorn Maze. They could make it like the Disneyland Paris Alice maze, where there's a castle at the middle, but make it all dark and spooky, have the goons popping up from time to time for comic relief, and have the ominous parts of the Sleeping Beauty soundtrack playing in the background.

    And if they are worried that it promotes the villains too much, well, at the end of the attraction you get out of the maze and escape, so Maleficent doesn't get you.
    Merida looks like this. Not a Barbie doll!

    Those are awesome, but I'd really like to see ones more like what she actually wears (no Mickey ears, etc)

    Re: What Maleficent Promotion Should Disneyland Do?

    The movie looks awesome. I'm not a big Angelina Jolie fan ---but she was born to play this role

    A love of Disney that sometimes borders on the edge of crazy ---but I'm okay with that
