Great article in the New York Times about the new and awaited Barack Obama Audio-animatronic coming soon to WDW Hall of Presidents. WDI wizards are apparently doing once again miracles and the Obama AA - that will have its premiere on July 4 - will be the most lifelike of all the "Presidents".
"The exhibit will open with the new film, narrated by the actor Morgan Freeman. At a certain point, the Abraham Lincoln figure will rise and speak to the audience, as it always has, but now it will deliver the Gettysburg Address in its entirety."
Kathy Rogers, senior show producer for Walt Disney Imagineering added “And this is the first time George Washington will have a speaking role”.
Obama AA will have of course a speech - recorded by Barack Obama on March 4 in the White House Map Room - and also another recitation of the oath of office!
