MALEFICENT TAKES CENTER STAGE IN FANTASMIC!
A spectacular new fire-breathing dragon takes center stage in “Fantasmic!” – the long-running spectacular presented on the “Rivers of America” in New Orleans Square and Frontierland in Disneyland. “Fantasmic!” combines Disney characters, live performers and amazing special effects with high-definition digital images from classic Disney movies, projected on giant mist screens. The dragon, inspired by “Sleeping Beauty,” stretches as high as 45 feet tall, is capable of a wide range of movement and breathes a 35-foot-long plume of fire that ignites the Rivers of America.
Maleficent is scheduled to appear nightly Sept. 1 through Sept. 7, with shows continuing weekends through the end of 2009.
