  • 8/14: Anne Hamburger; exit stage left...

    Editor's Note: It appears that entertainment honcho Anne Hamburger will soon be leaving Disney to "spend more time with family." One of the last relics of the Paul Pressler era, her haughty/artsy attitude won her no friends in Anaheim once Cynthia Harriss left. Her recent pitch to Team Disney Anaheim executives for a Narnia show in DCA's MuppetVision theater that had the audience entering the auditorium by walking through a giant wardrobe pushing their way in through hanging faux furs left the suits stunned in disbelief. But at least she went out with a bang. Discuss it here...

      I'm not gonna lie...I only met Anne once, but she struck me as neither haughty nor overly "artsy." I haven't seen a whole lot of her creative handiwork, so I can't really comment on that, but she's at least an entertaining speaker.

          Wasn't she, if I can recall, the executive who had supposedly never set foot inside the park proper?

            First off, I don't think C.S.Lewis ever intended Narnia to be a musical...

            Second, I think Imagineers could do the Muppets much better now that Eisner is out of the way...

            Third, as much as I like Alladin at the Hyperion... Bad stage shows are not a substitute for good attractions... (I really would like to see an Alladin dark ride something with video projection would be nice to give that feeling of flight.)

              Must've been someone else, the two times I was introduced to her took place in DCA - in the Animation building for the '02 Aladdin press conferance and at the Aladdin premiere party on the site where the ToT now stands.

                    BTW, I was I wasn't talking about DCA, but Disneyland Park itself. I was referring to the fact that during the Pre$$ler/Harri$$ era, there was a high ranking executive that had supposedly never set foot in the park, and I was almost certain that it was Anne Hamburger.

                      I was reminded that she was there in the pouring rain too for the Snow White An Enchanting New Musical premiere in DL, does that count?

                          I liked her work, and I lived in Anaheim, so I guess she did have a friend in Anaheim after all.
