And you thought the Captain Jack AA was realistic. This new Audio-Animatronic rendition of the classic President Lincoln figure is about as real as you can get. The movement of Mr. Lincolns facial “muscles” is incredibly lifelike.
When Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln opened in 1965, Lincoln’s head and face had a total of seven functions. Now, that has been upped to 20. With more functions comes more realism, and this allows Lincoln to purse his lips, smile, and more. The upgrades are definitely noticeable, as I think you’ll see when you check out the video.
The updated show is scheduled to open in December. If you get a chance to see the new AA, remember to let me know what you think. Until then, enjoy this Disney Parks Blog exclusive video!
