    Re: Sleeping Beauty Walk-through Question

    From what I understand, yes, that is the plan. The DVD release will also coincide with an exhibit showcasing original concept art for Sleeping Beauty, which is planned to be installed in DCA's Disney Animation pavillion, much like the recent Snow White exhibit.

    Re: Sleeping Beauty Walk-through Question

    Assuming that's the case, does anybody know when the Platinum Edition of Sleeping Beauty is scheduled to be released?

    Amazon.com has the 50th Anniversary Platinum Edition DVD listed for an October 7, 2008 release.

    Despite that release date, however, the film's actual 50th Anniversary is January 29, 2009 (original release date: Jan. 29, 1959).

    I would suspect that the Walk-Through attraction will debut anytime between the October 2008 and January 2009 time period, with a more likely opening date either in October with the DVD release or around the holiday season so it can be tied into the Holiday marketing campaign. This is all speculation on my part, though.

    Re: Sleeping Beauty Walk-through Question

    ORDDU: A witch would think an October re-opening of the castle walk thru is feasible enough, considering the fact that it was early June--possibly late May--when the newest reconstruction began. It really shouldn't require more than four or five months for something of this nature to be accomplished.

    That's the plan for Sleeping Beauty on PE. I have never been at the Sleeping Beauty walk-through, because I didn't know about it. Anyways I'm planning on buying Sleeping Beauty PE even when I have the Special Edition 2 Disc set.

    One more reason for me to hope that I am able to visit Disneyland in December.

    That depends... wild rumors offer the possibility of the ORIGINAL Earle/Anderson/Coats "flat" version being recreated from scratch, with new-era lighting and EFX - - rather than the latter-day "Main St. doll" version being restored.

    I hope what they are doing is a nod to the more visually charming (and true to the film style) original diorama. Who knows for sure?

    I can't wait. Things like this are the reason I will buy a new annual pass, after taking a yearlong break.

    (...I can only hope Swiss Family Treehouse and Tahitian Terrace and the Pirate Ship will come back again one day too.)

    The second floor of the pavillion building (upstairs from Goofy's Kitchen), has displayed a number of paintings from Sleeping Beauty for years. I think that they are among the most beautiful items on the walls of the resort.

    >>(6/27/08) Screamscape sources have come forward to confirm not only will the famous Castle walk-through reopen later this year, but from what weve been told the new experience has been rebuilt almost from scratch with modern technology and will simply be amazing. The new walkthrough will use detailed scenes as before, but mix them up with new style special effects and projection technology. If all goes well you can expect to see this new attraction reborn sometime close to Labor Day.<<

    Those particular paintings are Eyvind Earle's original stylings for Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle Diorama windows. Gorgeous!

    I figured that if they were going to rebuild it, they'd modernize it. As much as I loved the old one, the dolls didn't really reflect the style of the film. Thanks, Merlin. I've always loved those paintings.
