FROM THE TOP: “We feel as though we are reinventing the Disney pipeline,” Dindal said of the Mouse House’s first non-Pixar CGI venture and debut of the studio’s 3-D technology.
SHARING THE PAIN: The adult crowd relived their childhood fears as they watched their offspring play dodgeball — inspired by a particularly humiliating scene for the title character. “We wanted to bring universal references to the movie,” Fullmer said.
