Oooh! Good idea! I can’t believe I haven’t done anything on Wreck-It Ralph yet! There are sooooo many goodies hidden in there!
Hey guys, the newest episode of 2 Men and the Mouse is here! you can listen to it, and all of the other episodes, on their new website www.2menandthemouse.com! You can also check out more about Pete and Kevin, send them a message, and tell them you want me to come back and do more trivia ;-)
I have a Disney petition to share with you.
This petition is for saving Flik and Princess as permanent characters at Walt Disney World. Flik recently retired from meet-&-greets by “It’s Tough to Be a Bug!” at Animal Kingdom back in March 2012, and Dug and Russell replaced him. And Flik and Princess Atta could only be seen in the Pixar Pals’ Countdown to Fun parade at Hollywood Studios, which ended on April 6, 2013. Now Flik is not appearing in Walt Disney World anywhere! And we want to see him again. Here’s the petition: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/dug-and-russell-should-move-to-the-trail-leading/. It would be great if you could sign it and send it to your friends and family who would be willing to help. And don’t worry about the donation thing after signing it. Just ignore it. Thank you for your support! I really appreciate it.
Sure! Here are the questions, and I’ll post the answers tomorrow!
It’s the 50th anniversary of the 1964 New York World’s Fair! Walt Disney and the imagineers were an integral part of the most popular pavilions at the Fair. Here Walt is explaining the production of Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln for the State of Illinois Pavilion at the Fair. Walt was a huge admirer of President Lincoln, and this was a personal passion of his. These GIFs are taken from Disneyland Goes to the World’s Fair (1964).
I started answering your question by saying “dragonfire810 has some great videos on YouTube about the Disney dragons, here’s a link!”, and then I looked at your username! lol.
I know that for Malefacent, sound effects designer Jim Macdonald used castanets for her jaws snapping and the sound of flame throwers from training videos he requested from the U.S. Army for her fire breathing.
Disney was famous for reusing stock sound effects in their early movies, so I always assumed that they reused those sounds for most of the dragons that came after her. I haven’t been able to find out any actual answers, or any answer on who recorded her original growls and snarls, so if you know, please share!
Meanwhile, if you’re a fan of Disney dragons, check out dragonfire810’s “Disney Dragons” youtube playlist here!
Thanks so much Shaun!
Everyone should check out Shawn’s books. Many of them are available in print as well as downloadable Kindle formats. I’ve looked through some of the trivia books and they even stumped me a few times! GIve them a look!
Hey guys, just a quick note, I’m not going to be answering any more questions like “I want to be a face character, I’m [this] height, who can I be?” There are a lot of tumblrs out there dedicated to face characters who know a lot more about them and the casting process than I do, so I recommend checking them out, along with anything I’ve previously posted that’s tagged “face characters”.
