FIRST LOOK: Doc McStuffins Meet and Greet Character at D23 Expo

Doc McStuffins Meet and Greet at D23 ExpoBroken toys had nothing to fear this past weekend at Disney D23 Expo in Anaheim, California as Doc McStuffins made her debut to meet and greet with fans — and cuddles were definitely prescribed. We were fortunate to catch up with Doc between appointments where she proudly displayed one of the in-booth giveaways from Disney Junior: a tote with her own likeness on it.

No word at this time if and when she’ll be making appearances in Disney Parks but given her immense popularity and having been recently added to Disney Junior Live On Stage (alongside Princess Sofia the First who started appearing not too long ago at the Disneyland Resort and just yesterday began appearing at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort), it’s a good bet she just may.

Disney Animated: 75 Years of Animation History Literally in Palm of Your Hand

'Disney Animated' provides unprecedented access such as this Pinocchio maquette which had been lost for decades. Photo by Kiki LevinImagine if there was a way to explore every single frame of every single production from Walt Disney Feature Animation, from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs through Wreck-It Ralph and beyond. Imagine if you could have the ability to take a CG model of Vanellope von Schweetz based on an import of the real one and not only easily animate her with more than a hundred points of articulation but save and share your creation with your friends and even allow them to collaborate on your animation (app required). Imagine if you could harness the power of Elsa’s magic snow from Frozen and control its every move and appearance using the same software principles as the film’s animators used.

Disneyland’s Mysterious Role for ‘Immersive Meet and Greet’ (Frozen’s Kristoff? Marvel’s Avengers?)

A few days ago, we reported that Walt Disney World had issued a casting notice for Anna and Elsa from Walt Disney Animation Studio’s upcoming film, Frozen. Those roles, which called for one 5’3” – 5’7”, caucasian, slender, youthful yet regal and confident (Elsa) and one 5’3” – 5’7”, caucasian, slender, a youthful and outgoing free-spirit (Anna) brought joy to many, but ultimately raised more questions than it answered. What about Disneyland, some wondered, while others pondered what about the primary male lead in the film, Kristoff?
