Not too long ago, we showed you how the original computer graphics (CG) models from the actual films helped produce the Toy Story Definitive Collection from Thinkway Toys. Today, we’re going to take a look at the same type of technology being used for an entirely different purpose: bringing Pixie Hollow to life at the 2009 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.
Courtesy of our friends at Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment, we are pleased to bring you this exciting opportunity in which two very lucky Stitch Kingdom readers will each win a copy of the newest Disney fairies film, Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure, in a Disney DVD and Blu-ray combo pack, available in stores on October 27. And if that isn’t enough, we’ll also be honoring the winner with his/her very own set of wearable fairy wings* created solely for promotion of the film and not available in any store! (Note that the color of the wings will be chosen at random and cannot be selected by the winner).
Mainlanders take note: In anticipation of the new Tinker Bell movie, Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure, Pixie Hollow will soon see a new resident.
Walt Disney World is set to actively cast for Terence, a dust-keeper and the first male fairy in Pixie Hollow (joining Fawn, Rosetta, Silvermist and Tinker Bell). According to the parks, Terence is ‘a dust-keeper in the magical Pixie Dust Tree. Though he loves to have fun, he also is kind and thoughtful, and has great wisdom of the heart. Terence has a definite soft spot for Tinker Bell, and the two have become best friends.’
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment would like to invite you to a sneak peek at the upcoming Disney Fairies Blu-ray and DVD release, Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure. You can read all about the upcoming release which debuts October 27 here.
Attendees of the D23 Expo will also have an opportunity to experience the film in its entirety on Sunday, September 13 at 4 pm in the Walt Disney Studios Theater.
