    Hmm. Interesting that they're doing this kind of preview in the Bug's Land theatre this time. I guess it better matches the tone of the film anyway.

      They are probably using the Bug's Land theatre this time since the new Muppet Movie is coming out in April. They wouldn't want to take the Muppet attraction out of circulation and miss that cross-promotion opportunity.

        It's only for one day. It wouldn't affect the Muppet film at all. Besides, the Bug Life theatre is a much more appropriate setting because of it's design.

        Maleficent is is a protector of the forest, in the new film, so that's what makes it a great fit.

            Yes but it is scheduled to be close March 31st through April 18th. This suggest they may do some light rethemeing work.

            What if instead of Hopper we get a dragon?

            Also this isn't a single day deal. It starts with no end date on April 18th according to Disney's post.

              You're right it is pretty open ended, but I assume they'll go back at some point to the original It's Tough to be a Bug show, just as they have with Muppets but I could be wrong. Personally, I think it would be amazing if they could do it on the Rivers of America and use Murphy the Dragon for the preview but logistically that isn't even close to working out.

                I would guess it will play to June at least so that is until the movie opens. If the movie does well and/or the preview is popular it could stay, if not they could close the theater for two weeks and it would open mid June when Summer crowds are back.

                It's a little perplexing that they aren't doing the premier on ROA with Murphy, of course this is no POTC film.

                  That sounds about the right time frame to me to, though they could easily change it based on the film's popularity. It's not like this is a major, complicated attraction that they are closing though, it is in essence only a 4D film which could be easily swapped out as they have done with Muppets and also to bring EO back to Tomorrowland so I don't have a big problem with them changing out movies here and there to do promos. I think that they would be hesitant to do something with a Maleficent premiere on the ROA because like you said, its not a "tried and true" surefire hit like POTC was, though with all the hype and attention Maleficent is getting so far, I don't see why they can't do it. Heck, even the Lone Ranger got a preview in DCA and that movie was nowhere close to POTC, save for the fact that Johnny Depp appears in both.

                    There was a thread started last week ago on this same topic.

                      The movie sounded pretty terrible from a leaked script last Summer that was pretty much nothing but "Oh Maleficent's a special snowflake tormented by the mean fairies" and character assassination on the king and the three good fairies, and from the looks of the trailers, that hasn't really been fixed. I'm especially bugged by the fact that Maleficent doesn't even turn into the dragon: She turns the crow, who is her shapeshifting lover, into the dragon.

                        What's next? A movie featuring the evil queen from "Snow White"?
