Walt Disney Imagineering Docs

"What if you could dream the impossible…" If you're as much of a die-hard Pixar fan as I, you've most likely already seen The Pixar Story documentary by Leslie Iwerks (if not, watch it on iTunes tonight). Iwerks, whose grandfather was an early Disney animator and father was a former Imagineer, is back at it working on another Disney documentary about Imagineering, and the Imagineers team that built the first Disneyland & Disney World theme parks, rides and animatronics that became a key part of the Mouse House's legacy. An early teaser trailer shown at D23 has arrived online and it's a must watch for anyone who loves Disney.

Here's the first trailer for Leslie Iwerks' Disney Imagineering doc, from Disney Parks (via SlashFilm):

During a gathering of Disney fans at the D23 Expo, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs premiered this trailer from a documentary that explores the past, present and future of Walt Disney Imagineering by noted documentary filmmaker Leslie Iwerks. Ms. Iwerks comes from a family with deep Disney history — her grandfather was an early Disney animator and her father is a former Imagineer — and her previous work includes profiles of Pixar Animation Studios and visual effects house Industrial Light & Magic. Walt Disney Parks and Resorts is partnering with Leslie on this latest project that will explore in unprecedented depth the facts, faces and fantastic stories behind the magic of Disney Parks. Arriving 2016.

This looks like it's going to be such a good doc. I love looking behind the curtain of themeparks.

2016?? Why are they releasing a trailer now? Are they waiting for the Shanghai Park to be completed? That's really weird...
