On May 1 Prop Culture will debut on Disney+.
You’ll see some of Disney’s most well-loved feature films represented in the first season, including: Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Mary Poppins, Tron, Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Muppet Movie, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.
Disney opened their “vault” to Dan Lanigan and the Prop Culture crew for the program. Disney regularly exhibits these special pieces in museums and at special events, but when they are not on view these iconic treasures are carefully preserved and safeguarded deep inside the Archives. Being able to pull out these props, costumes, and works of art to share with Dan and the designers, directors, producers and actors who first created and used them was an opportunity that was not to be missed. Dan is a passionate collector who knows a great deal about the history of his favorite film props and costumes.
The audience will hear the firsthand stories of the filmmakers who created these objects and their history. They will witness the joy of the designers and actors as they are reunited with these objects.
