Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia post! Along with my friends Jenn “The Social Media Icon” from Disney Babies Blog, Heidi “I live at the beach” from Heidi’s Head, and Jodi “The Author, NutriSystem blogger, Disney Contest Queen, and so much more” from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, I’m Mike “I can’t wait til Disneyland” from My Dreams of Disney, here to share another Disney trivia tidbit!
In today’s post, we are taking a look at the Disney movie Pocahontas.
Did You Know…about Pocahontas
In 1995, over 100,000 people attended a free outdoor premiere of Disney’s Pocahontas on the Great Lawn in New York City’s Central Park. Shown on four 80-foot high screens, it is the largest opening ever for an animated film. A majority of the tickets were given away in advance in a random lottery to those who responded to newspaper advertisements. Pocahontas will be released to select theaters in the U.S. June 16 and generally released June 23.
That is incredible! I never knew that. Special thanks, of course, to the Disney History site This Day in Disney History for that neat piece of Disney trivia!
