'Meet the Robinsons' on Disney Digital 3-D
Successful Revolutionary 3-D Experience Extended to Next Disney Animated Feature in Select Theaters Nationwide Decemeber 2006
Walt Disney Pictures will present its newest
all CG animated film "Meet the Robinsons" in Disney Digital 3-D™, opening in
theaters nationwide December 2006. Disney Digital 3-D™, a brand new state-of-the-art
technology providing the first true three-dimensional digital experience, was a
tremendous success with the recent release of Walt Disney Pictures "Chicken Little."
On opening weekend the film brought in a screen average of $26,000 in 79 3-D theaters
compared to the overall screen average of $10,961 in over 3600 theaters. To date,
"Chicken Little" has garnered over $83 million at the domestic box-office.
"Following up on the historic debut and success of 'Chicken Little' in Disney Digital
3-D, we anticipate that 'Meet the Robinsons' will be shown on between 750 to 1000
screens with Real D capabilities," said Chuck Viane, president, Buena Vista Pictures
Distribution. "Certainly 'Chicken Little,' with its witty story and amazing animation,
is a fantastic movie-going experience in any format. However, the box office performance
level of the 3-D theaters proves that the public is not only embracing the story
but the newest in innovative technology as well. The folks at Dolby Digital, ILM
and Real D certainly deserve kudos for their collaboration with us in this revolutionary
and highly successful venture."
"Based on a bestselling book by William Joyce, "Meet the Robinsons" leaps into the
future in December 2006. When Lewis, a 12 year-old genius inventor, meets a mysterious
boy from the future named Wilbur Robinson, the two travel forward in time and spend
a day with Wilbur's eccentric family -- a day that will change Lewis' life forever.
"Meet the Robinsons" is directed by Steve Anderson and produced by Dorothy McKim."
