BURBANK, Calif. — (July 10, 2009) -– eFX Inc. will explore the mysteries of the deep, and of Walt Disney’s haunting interpretation of Capt. Nemo’s Nautilus, when it unveils its highly accurate, detailed collectible model of this iconic submarine from Disney’s renowned adaptation of Jules Verne’s epic 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
The Nautilus is among the upcoming limited-edition collectibles from eFX that will preview at San Diego Comic-Con this July, and at the first-ever D23 Expo, Sept. 10-13 at the Anaheim Convention Center. Pre-orders are expected to be taken shortly after the D23 Expo, and the Nautilus is expected to ship in early 2010.
At an incredible four feet long, the approximately 1/45th scale Nautilus from eFX will offer extraordinary details, including internal and external lighting and re-creations of both the lush salon and the all-important wheelhouse, providing collectors with the opportunity to peer into the inner sanctum of this enormous underwater vessel.
WASHINGTON, July 10 — Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and Walt Disney Parks and Resorts are combining forces at this year’s National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) Annual Convention and Career Fair to present an exciting lineup of entertainment, including a sneak preview of special footage from Walt Disney Pictures’ animated comedy adventure, “The Princess and the Frog,” and the debut of Disney’s newest princess, Tiana, voiced by Tony Award(R) winning-actress Anika Noni Rose.
Rose will also perform a song from “The Princess and the Frog.” The performance and the sneak peek of select footage from the upcoming film are part of the NABJ Convention’s “NABJ Presents” event on Thursday, Aug. 6 at the Tampa Waterside Marriott Hotel and Marina.
“Disney’s magic is in full-force again this year and we are especially thrilled they have chosen the NABJ Convention to highlight ‘The Princess and the Frog,’” said NABJ President Barbara Ciara. “We are also proud of Disney’s involvement in the African-American community through multiple initiatives including Disney’s Dreamers Academy. And we are pleased that convention attendees are offered the opportunity to experience the theme parks of Walt Disney World Resort first-hand.”
Walt Disney Parks and Resorts will unveil Princess Tiana live and in-person, just as she will appear to park guests, at the NABJ Convention — two months before her scheduled debut at Magic Kingdom Park at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Park in California.
“This is the first time anyone will see the new princess,” said Craig Dezern, vice president of Global Public Relations for Disney Destinations. “We’re excited for NABJ attendees to see first and first-hand our newest Disney princess.”

HONG KONG (Reuters) – Hong Kong lawmakers approved a government plan on Friday to spend HK$3.63 billion ($468 million) expanding the city’s Disneyland theme park with Walt Disney, boosting the smallest of Disney’s five resorts.
With attendance falling short of targets, the government has been seeking ways to boost the number of visitors in the long term, given the threat from a rival Disney theme park planned for Shanghai.
Hong Kong will convert a significant amount of its HK$6.89 billion outstanding loan to the park into equity, while Walt Disney will invest HK$3.5 billion to help finance the construction cost and also convert its outstanding HK$2.76 billion loan to the theme park into equity.
