    Disney welcomes the arrival of a new generation in this larger-than-life spot directed by MTh’s Mathew Cullen and Christopher Leone. Animated worlds collide as a new generation of Pixar and Disney characters leap out of the Dinoco helicopter, parachuting into Disneyland Paris. The grand finale brings the new Disney family together with Mickey as the ringleader in a historic welcome parade down the center of Disney’s famed Main Street.
