Earlier this month, we told you about a press event for Disney’s Tangled held at the Walt Disney Animation Studios in Burbank, California. Today, Walt Disney Animation Studios has provided us with some hi-res photos from the event featuring the cast and crew of the film, including the Disney Parks meet & greet versions of Rapunzel and Flynn Rider.

Having seen the photos in full detail and after learning some additional information, we believe our assertions that Rapunzel’s hair will be worked into the meet and greet scene were incorrect. Initially based on the original concept art released by Disney Parks, it would appear to be that case, but due to the following reason which would be considered a spoiler, we see that may have changed:

Trailer for Disney’s ‘Gnomeo and Juliet’ Debuts on Web

'Gnomeo & Juliet' © Disney EnterprisesApple has released the first trailer for Disney’s Gnomeo and Juliet which will be debut in theaters in spring of 2011. Originally poised to fall under the Miramax Films label, it appears Disney has shifted it over to Touchstone Pictures in an effort to maintain ownership of the film given Miramax’s future departure from The Walt Disney Company.

With classic songs by Elton John and the voice talents of James McAvoy, Emily Blunt and Michael Caine, Gnomeo and Juliet is the re-telling of the Shakespearean tale of Romeo and Juliet in which two garden gnomes find love despite being from warring factions.

Sneak Peek: Bonus Features for Disney’s ‘Fantasia’ and ‘Fantasia 2000’ on Blu-ray/DVD

Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has released a few snippets from the bonus features of the November 30 release of Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 on Disney 4-Disc Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and a 2-Disc DVD. As no names are revealed in the clips, I’ll be half-guessing at identifying some of the personalities featured in them. Corrections would be appreciated if known.

The first two clips appear to be from the segment on the Walt Disney Family Museum located in the Presidio in San Francisco. In the first, Executive Director Richard Benefield talks about the cultural impact Walt Disney had and the expectations the museum would have to meet to honor that. The clip also features an appearance by one of Walt’s grandsons, whom I believe to be Walter Elias Disney Miller.
