Disneyland celebrates its 54th anniversary......and Disney and more introduces the new " Movies " section !
Yes, it's already Disneyland 54th anniversary - and next year the 55th! Incredible, isn't it? To celebrate this event i've embedded for you the fantastic "Disneyland U.S.A" documentary filmed in the late 50's.
Why fantastic? Well, first, it's incredibly well filmed - and in glorious Cinemascope! The Cinemascope format was brand new at that time, and it's interesting to see how each frame of the movie have been thought to take as much as possible advantage of this new wide format. Sometime it almost reminds me the Cinerama movies which will be introduce some years later.
If you have never seen it don't miss it as it's also a unique chance to see how Disneyland looks like 50 years ago. In fact, truth is that it's not a documentary but a real time machine!
And all this leads me to the second news of the day, the new Disney and more Movies section! What? Another new Disney and more design again? Yep, last week you've discovered the design of the Disney and more "Artwork" section and this week, on Disneyland 54th birthday, i introduce the new "Movies" section.
On Disney and more Movies you will find the "Movies and Animation" articles and in the future all the "movies" articles previously posted on Disney and more. Enjoy this new "Movies and Animation" section, all in dark blue and gold colours. Gold like all the Academy Awards that Walt Disney Animation Studios won in more than 70 years!
And now, to comeback to today's main celebration, Disneyland 54th Anniversary and this not-to-be-missed documentary, jump on Disney and more Movies where "Disneyland U.S.A" awaits you for your private screening!
