Bolt and Buzz Balloons head to Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Bolt the dog and Buzz Lightyear the toy Balloons will be floating around as part of this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The two entries and a float will help the Walt Disney Company promote two upcoming animated films. Bolt will premier on November 21st and Toy Story 3 (in 3D) will open next June with parts one and two opening before hand in remastered 3-D versions.

“The Macy’s Parade has been the launching pad for many new beautifully animated characters just waiting to leap into the hearts of fans everywhere, and this year is no exception,” says Amy Kule, producer of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. “The addition of Bolt and Buzz Lightyear to an already stellar line-up is sure to be a highlight of the annual procession and make Bolt and Buzz Lightyear instant Parade classics.”

Bolt and his unlikely traveling companions, Mittens the jaded cat and Rhino the TV-obsessed hamster, showcase their cross-country journey from New York to Hollywood aboard the Parade float. Miley Cyrus, who provides the voice of Bolt’s beloved owner Penny in the movie, will be aboard the float performing “I Thought I Lost You,” an original song she recorded for the movie with co-star John Travolta.

Buzz Lightyear goes to Herald Square and Beyond! The larger-than-life character helium balloon measures 67 feet long, 39 feet wide and 34 feet tall and replicates the fearless space ranger from his green and purple space boots all the way up to his helmet, which is 17 feet in diameter. In fact, Macy’s Parade Studio designers used a special fabric never before used on a Parade balloon to create the clear space helmet.
