Massive Beauty and the Beast Statue Going to New Fantasyland?

Posted on December 2, 2011

WDWNT Reporter Adam Roth visited Disney’s Hollywood Studios yesterday and (for some reason) decided to take a trip on the Backlot Studio Tour. Boy, are we glad he did, because he came across this “beauty” in the prop shop:

Taking a wild guess, I would imagine this still unfinished statue is going to New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom, seeing as this is the same building where the mural for Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid was created. Where exactly in the expansion will this statue end up? Possibly the Be Our Guest Restaurant, but it’s still too early to tell. Just another little preview of Fantasyland to wet your appetite for 2012…

On a side note, where is that table in the background from? Another piece of New Fantasyland, or maybe we’re just over-thinking this…

    Looks like you could put a nice little floral setup on that table… or perhaps a solitary rose?  

    Tried to find a screen grab on google images, but all I could find had just the top of the table the rose sits on… :(  

    Also… I don’t know what kind of material they used, but it looks like the statue’s made of butter. Hoping we’ll see these figures waltzing around an “upper level” of the restaurant.

    Slight correction – “whet” your appetite.

    Massive? Compared to the items on the table I suspect the statue is only 7 feet tall at most. To me massive is 20 plus feet.

    Thanks for the report and I can’t wait to see where it really ends up. Keep whetting my appetite :-)

    It looks like it’s made out of butter… mmmmmmm… butter.
