Did anyone else hear about the Salvador Dali designed animated short "Destino" playing in front of "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" ?

Is this actually the case ? I'd hate to buy a ticket to "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" just to see "Destino" and find that it's not actually playing . (no way I want to sit through "Beverly Hills Chihuahua".
I'll watch Destino and then I'm out of there)

What an odd film to dump "Destino" on . I saw Destino screened at the studio when I used to work at Disney , but I'd like to see it again .

"Another interesting fact about Beverly Hills Chihuahua is that all prints of the movie will feature the short film Destino, which was created in 2003, appended to the beginning. The short film is unique because its production actually began 58 years prior to its release. Artist Salvador Dali storyboarded the film along with Disney studio artist John Hench, but the project went dormant because of financial concerns. In 1999, the project was unearthed, and work began again on Destino the following year. It is a fascinating bit of history both because of its connection to acclaimed artist Salvador Dali and the fact that it was only released so many years after work began on it, something which does not happen often in the film industry. Beverly Hills Chihuahua may not be an attractive prospect for adults that pride themselves on their film tastes, but the short film Destino is certainly something that should be interesting to see."

wow i forgot that this short even existed. i remember seeing a trailer for it some time ago. i just read a post over at imdb that it was playing in front of BHC. i also just read that it was slated to appear on a "disney treasures" box set that was supposed to hit shelves this november, but apparently it's been canceled?

i think i found it in its entirety on youtube, but the video quality was so poor i chose not to watch it.

I think that was a wise choice. It's really quite beautiful as I recall it and would be worth seeing on a big screen.

Sorry to hear that it won't be on one of the new Disney Treasures DVD's .

I guess I'm buying a ticket for BHC ...

It played with the Triplets De Belleville years ago. That was a more fitting pairing.
Ah well. Perhaps Disney wanted to inspire live action goers to watch it's animated productions?

I dunno.

This is a really magnificent piece of animation that brings together the work of Disney and Dali that has sat collecting dust in the Disney vaults these past few decades. About 5 years ago Roy Disney, when he was still on the Disney board, brought it over to Annecy. It was a personal project of his that I'm glad saw the light of day.

I've seen "Destino," and it really is a wonderful piece of film making. Thanks to Roy Disney for making this happen.

We screened the film on the Disney Wonder while cruising the Caribbean a few months ago. Really nice watching good stuff while sailing the high seas.

Destino has had quite a bit of exposure recently. It screened regularly at Tate Modern's Dali exhibition last year in London & I caught it in Paris at the art of Disney expo 'Il etait une fois'.
It's a shame that touted dvd release sank without trace when Roy Disney left the studio. I'd love to see it released with other 'unseen' shorts such as 'John Henry' and 'Lorenzo'. Along with Hendel Butoy's African short & 'The Little Matchstick Girl' Disney have enough material for another Fantasia!
