I'm a little confused. In addition to Canada or does he already host something?

He did The Making of Me, although that was in the Wonders of Life pavillion which is now closed (er, opened seasonally -- and last December when I saw Cranium Command, Making of Me wasn't open). I thought I remembered hearing of him doing something else too, but I don't remember what.

That explains it - I've never seen The Making of Me. Hope he (and Disney) do a bang up job on the new Canada film. I can't wait till I get to see it in January!

I will always have fond memories of that attraction. When my eldest was 5yo his pediatrician said I needed to explain a bit of the facts of life to him. I was floored -- I mean, he was only 5!! But he said if I didn't, some middle schooler would take great pleasure on the bus doing it for me. I never thought I'd have a problem talking to the boys about that kind of stuff, but he was soooo little. Fortunately, that very year we were going to Disney. And Making of Me was playing. It was very well done and a very good explanation. Every time I hear it now I smile thinking about how I ducked out of that one with Mickey's help.

I can't wait to see the new one! I love O' Canada eventhough a Canadian friend of mine says it's corny and it's "obvious" the woman singing isn't Canadian! :)

Umm you friend is wrong. Anne Murray sings the O' Canada theme song. She is from the small Nova Scotia coal mining town of Springhill.

As for the new changes I think Martin Short will be good, he does voice overs well. Dunno about the song... guess I will have to hear it and make a judgment.

Luckily we have the original here on SR. :)

I've heard that they're adding in Martin Short, and Eva Avila's doing the song for the new film. :roll: If that proves to be true it'll probably be reason enough for me to stay away. I kinda like Martin Short, but Eva Avila makes me want to claw my ears off or something lol.

ETA: oops, the page wasn't letting me get past the first page lol! I see this has all already been brought up :oops:

Disney has confirmed that Martin Short will narrate and Eva Avila singing the music of "O Canada!"
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- In September, Walt Disney World guests can glimpse today's Canada in a 14-minute motion picture presented in CircleVision 360 as a major feature of the Canada pavilion in Epcot World Showcase. Titled "O Canada!" the updated film includes new scenes highlighting Canada's natural beauty, cosmopolitan cities and diverse populace.

In addition, the film is now hosted by Canadian actor Martin Short, whose charm, warmth and wit add a distinct and authentic flair. Walt Disney Imagineers collaborated with the Canadian Tourism Commission to update the film, including new orchestration and images, and Canadian Idol winner Eva Avila singing the music of "O Canada!"

The motion picture takes guests from the far northeastern shores of Newfoundland's Bay of Fundy by railroad to the southwestern beauty and tranquility of Buchart Gardens in British Columbia. Canada's natural beauty is majestically displayed -- from the 800-year-old redwood trees of Cathedral Grove to the astounding splendor of Horseshoe Falls to the snowy mountains of Kananaskis Valley.

The film includes the nation's capital, Ottawa, with its Parliament buildings and Rideau Canal; the sophistication of Toronto, with its nightlife and film festivals; and Quebec City, the cradle of French civilization in Canada. Also mentioned: the not-so-famous but artfully named small towns of Moose Jaw and Medicine Hat. The people of Canada are featured in outdoor activities including skiing, whitewater rafting and hockey.

I'm looking forward to the new movie. Wish they'd keep the song becuase I do like it too. But I wish they'd get rid of the standing up. Swivel chairs would be nice. I can see why they might not want to do it (can squeeze more people in if they're standing) but I always like to sit down. And standing up, looking up and turning around gets me dizzy (yes, I know I am already -- don't say it :lol: )

I have to agree. I love Canada but I wish there was a way we could sit. Too bad they couldn't section it off or something so people could ly down or at least sit.

i just watched the new Canada film with Martin Short on Inside the Magic podcast. Wow it was good. of course they kept most if not all of the original film but it was done so well i didn't get bored like i usually do when watching it. I'll actually take my family to see this next time we go. (they hated the first one.)

We'll have to check this out next month when we go, my dad loves Canada and he always makes us go through the movie! Sounds like it will be a little more interesting this time around. :)
