    Don't the current ones do their fair share of scaring kids now?
    I was thinking the same thing, the large heads with the huge eyes!

    That's awesome! I don't think they're scary at all, that's amazing technology....

    I think that's awesome! I don't understand the people saying that these are more creepy than the old ones, I'm less scared by something that looks lifelike than something that always has eyes wide open and whose face doesn't move!

    And I like Hook & Smee this way... they are people, so they should be face. !!

    KUNGALOOSH!!!

    i'd have to see hook and smee in person to make a fair judgement...but i think it makes more sense for them to be face characters...the more "realistic" heads look pretty cool to me...and i think kids are either going to be scared of them whether or not their eyes blink...it depends more on the individual child...i was never afraid of the characters(maybe more shy around them) and my brother was only scared of prince john bc he had "scary eyebrows"

    Just saw the video... They look REAL. It's a big improvement for them. I guess they have heads for all the costumes(Pirate Goofy and Dream Goofy) They look amazing. I can't wait to see them live.

    I highly doubt that this will scare children.

    I mean, really, they're not that horrific to look at. And plus, these are characters that kids are familiar with, they're not going to see these characters and think, AH DEMON MICKEY! They're going to think, YAY MICKEY!
