When Darkness and Light Colide, the Night Becomes Fantasmic!

As most are already aware of the new Maleficent Dragon being installed for Fantasmic! At Disneyland Park, many fans are wondering what the dragon will actually look like. As far as it is publicly known according to the Disneyland Press Release, all that is mentioned is that "The evil Maleficent from 'Sleeping Beauty' transforms into a 40-foot tall, fire-breathing dragon." But according to Disney's mini documentary from 1992, it is already stated that "A 40 foot dragon hides and wait, rising from a hidden trap door".

Aside from it being 40 feet high, the dragon will have a flame 20'-30' from her mouth. And when the dragon is in slumber, it is folded onto itself in order to fit in the 25 foot pit. This dragon should hopefully resemble the dragon that was seen in the original commercial for the spectacular water show when it debuted in 1992

And what is really great about all of this, is that the new dragon alone is costing more than $1 million. Along with the new Flotsam and Jetsam puppets , and an improved Crocodile, Disney is pouring money into a show that hasn't lost any popularity since it's 1992 debut
