This just in from Ted Thomas:
["Walt & El Grupo" will come to the screen in September!
Yes, it is a special little gem of a film, but it still requires enthusiastic audiences on the opening weekend to get a crack at staying in those theaters for another week and, one prays, another and another. So, put it on your calendar, tell your friends, and let's all go to the movies! Our movie.
Walt Disney Pictures is helping out with a limited release, and the first cities to open will be on
Friday, September 11
New York - The Quad
Los Angeles - The Landmark Regent (Westwood)
Anaheim - AMC Downtown Disney 12
Friday, September 25, the film opens in
Seattle - The SIFF Cinema
Other cities will follow, including
San Francisco (probably late October)
We have a poster designed by the Walt Disney Pictures Creative Print folks, (above); a trailer, which will be in selected theaters in the coming week (and on the web soon after);
a Facebook page

and a generous quote from Leonard Maltin: "A revelation for Disney fans everywhere. The past comes alive in this vivid film about a once-in-a-lifetime adventure."
If the film is not currently headed to a theater near you, our understanding is that the best way to change that is to contact the manager of said nearby theater and ask for it. Let them know how to find out more about the film, and that there is a local audience for it.]
