Jesus... will this incredible day with plenty of awesome news ever end? After the Star Wars 7 casting announcement and the ones about the new huge investments in SDL and TDR - see articles below - Walt Disney Imagineering release a new "behind the scenes" video showing the making of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Audio-Animatronics!

Not only they used the face projection effect on the dwarfs but also on some of the little animals...
And here is the Imagineering video! Go ahead, watch it in full screen mode!
