BURBANK, Calif., Feb. 3 -- Walt Disney Pictures has announced plans to promote its summer animated feature 'Hercules' with a 20-city road show titled 'Disney's Hercules Mega Mall Tour.' Disney said today (Monday) that the production is free to the public under Chevrolet's sponsorship, and will open Thursday in Atlanta and conclude June 8 in a city to be announced.
Other cities on the schedule include Miami, Houston, Dallas, Chicago, Kansas City, Indianapolis, Philadelphia, Boston, Denver and Las Vegas, Nev. The attraction includes a 'Hercules'-themed live stage show, a miniature carousel based on Baby Pegasus (a character from the movie), game booths and an art workshop. There also is a 'Baby Pegasus Playland' aimed at toddlers. One visitor in each city will win a Chevy Venture minivan. The movie, opening June 27, is a comedy from the same team that created Disney's 'The Little Mermaid' and 'Aladdin.' Disney calls it 'an extremely irreverent and hilarious approach' to the adventures of the mythological superhero. ---
