History and Trivia

  • At this location: Immediately prior to the current form of the exhibit this space was a showcase for the previous movie in the Narnia franchise and was called Journey Into Narnia: Creating the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and included appearances by Jadis, the White Witch (played by Tilda Swinton in the movie). Prior to that the space was a showcase for the making of the movie The Haunted Mansion and then back even farther from 1996 to 2002 it was exhibited props from the making of the live action version of 101 Dalmatians. Prior to that the soundstages on Mickey Avenue were used to showcase actual production tasks in making animated movies (don't forget that once upon a time there was a hope to use the park as an actual working studio).
  • Other Trivia:
    • A grand opening: Because of the literary connections, when the showcase for The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe opened on December 9, 2005, in attendance were Florida first lady Columba Bush (sister-in-law to the President George W. Bush) and state education chancellor Cheri Pierson Yecke.
