    Hi Rick
    are you going to the D23 Expo? I’m so happy to see that Jodi Benson will becoming a Disney Legend she is amazing!

    1. Ricky Brigante

      Yes, I’ll definitely be there!

  2. Ahhh! Finally Lea Salonga is a Disney Legend!!!!

  3. I am so happy Jim Hensen is becoming a legend. I was looking him up last night and found out that he almost sold his company to Disney before his death. I’m unsure about Anika Noni Rose although she was teriffic in Princess and the Frog, but I’m not sure that she has done enough work in the company to get this award. I think it’s just a little premature. She has though, given more than Jack and Bonita Wrather IMO.

      Oh, sure, NOW Jim Henson is a “Disney Legend”, with their panic over the movie coming out…Remember it wasn’t that way back in the 90’s. Unless they’re honoring him for “Dinosaurs”.
      (Still remember Skipper Ben’s story about a bit of bad timing with Muppetvision 3-D still on special loan from Brian Henson–Sorry, Ben made us all promise we’d never talk about it.) 😉

      And Guy Williams is more of a Disney Legend than even Kermit will ever be.
      I’ve seen Antonio Banderas, and I’ve seen Tyrone Power, and Williams WAS the soul of Zorro.

  4. No Imagineers this year.

      I fear that the longer the Disney Legends Awards ceremony is public, the more it will become a marketing tool to drive D23 Expo ticket sales. Celebrities will always do that better than Imagineers, even with a crowd of Disney fans.

    Howdy Pards,

    What a wonderful thing it is to see Guy Williams joining the list of
    true Disney Legends at long last. For those of us who grew up back in
    those years…well…this recognition for the real Zorro is long, long

    Jim Henson is another individual who dedicated his life to making this ol’ world a happier, more joyful and imaginative place. His legacy will, like Walt’s, live forever in our hearts…

    Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.
