Comic-Con 2009: Disney 3-D Panel Impressions

waltdisneypictures-072309Making their first trip to Comic-Con, Disney held a special 3-D panel featuring several of their upcoming high-profile 3-D projects, including Alice in Wonderland, Tron Legacy (official name) and A Christmas Carol.  The panel was moderated by Patton Oswalt. Here are some highlights from the panel courtesy various sources [All impressions courtesy sourced sites]:

A Christmas Carol

  • Pictures were shown on the screen of all eight roles that Jim Carrey plays in the film.
  • Zemeckis showed an extended scene: “includes the footage of Scrooge being visited by the ghost of his late partner Jacob Marley. It starts earlier with Scrooge visiting Marley lying in a coffin with coins on his eyes and signing the death certificate. It then shows Scrooge returning home and walking up the staircase which is glowing eerily in red. The rest of the clip was pretty much what we had seen with the long build-up to the entrance by Marley’s Ghost as well as some of the footage that shows the various ghosts, much of which can be seen in the trailer.” [ComingSoon.net]
  • Was asked whether he’ll be doing live action movies, says he’s into “sending this artform out into the world” because he likes the “control this artform gives the director.”
  • Was also asked about rumors surrounding a sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit? [which I covered in this post].

More impressions on the A Christmas Carol panel, plus impressions from the panels on Alice in Wonderland and Tron Legacy follow after the jump. Continue reading Comic-Con 2009: Disney 3-D Panel Impressions
