The action hero superstar of Disney/Pixar’s Ratatouille, Remy, currently appears in amatronic form at Les Chefs De France located in Epcot’s World Showcase. He made his debut March 8 and is expected to hang around the kitchen for at least six months. Remy, the not-so-silent fourth partner in the restaurant, greets his guests daily at lunch until approximately 6 pm.

Previously, Remy entertained invités at the Walt Disney Studios Park at the Disneyland Paris Resort. Here’s a video of an appearance by Remy courtesy of our friends at DLP fan site PhotosMagiques.

Talks are in the works but the economic gloom is suggesting that Disney should start talking to Lexus on how to make Test Track drive itself. Full article here.
