    See ya walkin' right down the middle of o'l Main Street USA

    What if they close that section of the park down to film, and when they reopen it everything is how it was in 1961!

      Well they did say the Matterhorn was faster when they had just single bobsleds.

        I hate to say but this movie sounds downright ridiculous. I got all excited because I thought it would be the tale of Walt's life, but it's not...

It would be nice if they chose the places that still remain mostly true to how they appeared in 1961, but if they want to show him in front of Dumbo or the teacups (classic, instantly recognizable Disney park icons), they're going to do it, history be damned. I doubt they'll even bother to digitally alter them.
          In maintaining historical accuracy in films that deal with the lives of historical figures, what matters is not if the people watching the movie care, but if the filmmakers care.

            That's what we all thought but I figured that it must have been a big event in the studios history for it to be chosen. Maybe if this film is successful they will go and make a movie all about Walt from Marceline to Anaheim. However we have to look at the bare bones of this and only one thing really stands out that will sell this to fans ITS A LUMPIN' MOVIE ABOUT WALT!!!!! WHEN WILL THE STUDIOS GET THE BRAINS TO DO THIS SORT OF MOVIE AGAIN, EMBRACE IT MAN THIS MIGHT BE THE ONLY ONE!!!

                Even if it's more about the author of Mary Poppins than Walt, it could still be great since she's being played by Emma Thompson. I've gone into movies concerned that that actors didn't look right for the part, but if the actor is excellent I forget this in a minute.

                I just hope they get across that Walt was a genius at the height of his powers (1964 World's Fair attractions in NY, and POTC, the HM & WDW all being planned, and Mary Poppins). And I hope it shows his effective working relationship with the great Sherman Bros., who were also at the height of their genius.

                Right now, no one, not even Hanks, the screenwriter, the director nor the producers know how well this movie will turn out. Editing in weak music, or editing in music too loudly, or even the addition of two unnecessary scenes could kill the entire picture. But if a lot of talented artists are at their best, it could win Best Picture, and millions more could come to admire my favorite capitalist, Walt Disney.

                P.S. I suggest they use variations of Disney music like "Feed the Birds" throughout the film.

                  I guess I am wildly surprised that the first movie being done with Walt, isn't even about him and doesn't chronicle his life story. That is above all, what every single Disney fan wants to see on the big screen.

                    If this is a huge hit there will be more interest in that. The climax of that one could be the opening of Disneyland.

                    It's not easy to write an outstanding screenplay. If this story about conflict in the making of Mary Poppins was a visually interesting page turner with engaging characters and a good ending, then they were smart to make this now.

                      Every single Disney fan? That would be a cult movie, not a blockbuster.

                        Well, I guess it's fitting since Tom Hanks sort of looks like Walt Disney at the end of this Saturday Night Live skit

                          It's very commonplace for large parts of backgrounds, even of scenes filmed live on location, to be seamlessly CGI'd and mixed with actual on-location sets and backgrounds. They even do it convincingly on television nowadays.

                          I'd imagine they could easily change anything that doesn't look original, but actually being there gives them the foundation of realism to work with, as opposed to a total green screen job or building a set.

                            I can see them using CGI as well for transitions in the park

                              I'm curious to hear what Hanks does with the voice.

                                  A CM let me know they are filming today by the Castle and Fantasyland probably until 5pm today. So Fantasyland is closed for much of today.
