Disney liked to do unique things when it came to premiering a big motion picture. Such as premiering Pocahontas in New York's Central Park. For The Hunchback of Norte Dame, Disney held the premiere in New Orleans' Superdome. The film was projected on all six of the huge screens in the dome. Afterwards a huge parade followed starting from Jackson Square and traversing the French Quarter. That following year, there was a parade in NYC for the premiere of Hercules.

Only one of the songs from The Three Caballeros was an original one, and that was "mexico" by Charles Wolcott and Ray Gilbert. The other songs came from Mexican composers such as Augustin Lara and Ary Barroso but had English lyrics written by Ray Gilbert.

  1. I would so love to go see a disney premier anywhere they have it. sounds like so much fun.

  2. I love the idea of a Disney premiere outside, with large screens, for anyone to see! It'd be cool if they could do that in Baltimore these days. Even with today's frigid weather, I'd go! :D

    Great post, Jessica. =)
