Disney On Ice Presents Disney/Pixar’s ‘Toy Story 3’ on Ice Using State-of-the-Art Projection

Disney on Ice presents Disney/Pixar's 'Toy Story 3'Toy Story 3, the record-breaking #1 movie in the world, is so hot it’s cool as everyone’s favorite toys take to the ice in Disney On Ice presents Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3! An award-winning creative team and a cast of world-class skaters are bringing Woody, the pull-string cowboy; space ranger Buzz Lightyear; Jessie, the yodeling cowgirl; and the rest of the gang to fans and families around the country in this brand-new live ice spectacular produced by Feld Entertainment. This fast-paced and witty tale of friendship launches a 2-year, 75-city North American tour on September 3rd in Lakeland, FL.

To enhance this live experience, the production will feature state-of-the-art projection design, allowing adults and children alike to virtually shrink down as Andy’s room is transformed from human to toy-sized. Families are whisked away, reliving iconic moments from Toy Story and Toy Story 2 before they embark on the brand-new adventure of Toy Story 3. This innovative 3D technology, a first for any Disney On Ice show, blends four separate images into one massive 3D projection using the entire ice surface to create oversized effects and scenic elements, altering the audience’s perception of scale. Memorable scenes take on a new life as a pinball machine of monumental proportion is created at Pizza Planet, with the massive pinball table projected onto the ice and the score board on the stage behind it. This perspective, among many others throughout the show, reinforces the audience’s experience as a toy-sized spectator.

“An award-winning team of artists, designers and technicians are redefining the theatre of ice with a show that challenges the audience’s perception of scale,” says Producer Nicole Feld. “Disney On Ice presents Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 is Feld Entertainment’s most innovative show ever.”

Walt Disney Studios Conjures up Two New Television Ads for ‘Sorcerer’s Apprentice’

Walt Disney Studios has just made two of its new television spots for The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Neither appears to offer much in the way of new cool footage and completely focus on the relationship between Sorcerer Balthazar (Nicolas Cage) and Apprentice Dave (Jay Baruchel), but they’re still worth a look.

‘Apprentice Wanted’ plays on the theme of the film’s tagline: the coolest ever and basically reads as a typical want ad with footage of the film tossed in for good measure.
