"Toy Story The Musical" to Open in California Adventure [UPDATED]

Briefly: I never liked the Aladdin musical at Disney's California Adventure. I only saw it once. I don't know why--it just didn't seem to do the classic film justice. Well, that show will be closing on August 15, 2010 to make room for Toy Story--The Musical. This 50-minute long show will "feature larger-than-life set design, new songs, vivid projected backgrounds and elaborate costumes." It is also said to "preserve the humor and heart of the original film and explore the true meaning of friendship as Buzz Lightyear and Woody transform from jealous adversaries to best friends with an unbreakable bond. "

I don't know what to think. Woody and Buzz singing along together (especially the versions of them in the picture above) seems flat wrong. I doubt this play will live up to its movie, either. But, even if it is good, there just seems to be something wrong with sitting in a theater for an hour when there are rides to be had! Oh well, we'll see come 2011 when this play opens in Disney's California Adventure. Read more about it at the official D23 blog.

UPDATE: Disney and More has gotten their hands on plenty more information, as well as videos of the musical! Watch the videos, see more pictures, and read all about it over at Disney and More.
