What we have here is really Disney’s Mouseketeers for the new millennium. Raven, JesseMcCartney, Ashani and the like peform their version of “Colors of the Wind,” “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” and the like before a screaming studio audience at the California Disneyland Resort. Little“behind-the-scenes” segments are interspersed between the performances. The whole thing isextremely plastic, the songs are utterly bland and obviously lip-synched, and the result is reallynothing more tha… an hour-long commercial for Disney, only the idea is that you buy thiscommercial, rather than being subjected to it for free.
The volume of the menu seems to be about twice that of the feature itself. Otherwise, the2.0 sound is effective enough. The music comes through well, though it sounds just a little bitthin. The screaming crowd noises are omnipresent and very much in surround.
The picture is fullscreen and for the most part is fine. Some of the crowd shots and aerialviews are a bit grainy, but basically this is looks as good as a carefully orchestrated concertwould. Too good, in fact, thus emphasizing the artificiality of the exercise.
Nothing but a bonus video: Clay Aiken performing “Proud of Your Boy.” The menu’s onescreen is animated and very, very loud.
Professional, slick, and to be avoided at all costs.
