New talking characters & Hook and Smee now face characters!
For those who have not heard, the new animated character heads have finally made it into WDW. These were first intorduced with the traveling Mickey's Magic Show (which made a stop at the Disney-MGM Studios last year).
The characters actually 'talk' along with their words. There mouths move, eyes blink etc. This past Wednesday (Jan 17) they made their debut on the Castle stage for Dream Along with Mickey. Capt. Hook and Mr. Smee were presented as face characters.
Disney is taking the new major step forward in character advancement. Expect to start seeing this in parades and other show. Who know. IN the future they may start talking for meet n greets! Wouldn't that be nice.
You can see some of the pics in my gallery:
I will be posting video of it later as well.
