  • [Question] Characters Question

    So, this might have been asked when the first "talking" character heads at WDW came out, but does anyone know if Disneyland has a chance at getting some of those? Although creepy at first i think it adds a little more realism and magic to Disneyland.

    Well, we don't really have any need for them because there isn't any stage-type show that includes those characters. Any info at all would be appreciated, though.

      I, for one, wasn't a fan of the moving faces. It was just...weird >< I like Mickey's mouth not moving while he talks, thank you

        Just for clarification, this like the Jack Skellington head and Old Hag (in Fantasmic!)?

          The new heads they use for Dream Along with Mickey are very cool, however, I believe those are only for the show, and we wouldn't have much use for them outside of the brief moments Mickey speaks in Fantasmic!

              No, I believe we're talking about this:

                  I think this would be AWESOME in any Disney stage show (like Fantasmic!) but not in the silent meet and greets.

                            We saw a "talking" Goofy at the Christmas parade filming last year; it was interesting but I don't think I liked it enough to bring it into wide use at DL.

                              Judging from that video, I'm actually not bothered by the moving mouths. It takes a little getting used to, but I think if we'd all grown up with the mouths moving like that, the frozen mouths you currently see would look really unnatural and cheap.

                              And yes, IIRC, there's been talk of technology that modifies the actor's voice in real time to better match that of the original character. Not 100% positive on that...don't quote me.
