    Talking Heads?!?!?!?!?!?

    So this is a RUMOR.... Does anyone know anything about this?

    Screamscape was sent in a weird rumor that I’m not quite sure about. The rumor claims that a few choice Disney characters in the Dream Along With Mickey show may soon begin to talk, using new technology inside the heads that will allow their mouths to move in sync with the canned show audio. Certainly this is possible of course and has been for quite some time, but Disney seemed to stay away from ever doing this for a variety of reasons. On top of this interesting change was also a mention that the Captain Hook and Smee costume characters may soon be replaced by “face characters” as well. Anyone know more about new talking heads?

    They are in rehersals now, these are the same heads used in Mickey's Magic Show which is currently touring the country. They will be used in the show starting right around the press event at the end of the month. Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy will all be using them.

    They actually look amazing, when I went to see the magic show I could not get over how cool they look, the eyes move, blink and everything. I think Donald is my favorite, Mickey kind of looks kind of slow if you know what I mean.

    This should be interesting. I wonder if the other characters will get the same treatment as well, such as Stitch and Chip & Dale.

    I don't know if they should start off with such big changes on this show, since such things are prone to technical difficulties.

    Phasing it in slowly wouldn't be a bad idea. A good first start would be the Mickey "thanks for coming!" bit at the train station each night after closing. Then they can work any bugs out.

    That's cool they want to make Captain Hook and mr. Smee face characters! I've been waiting for that forever!

    If it's done as smoothly as the Buzz anamatronic then I think this sounds great.
