Anonymous asked: could you talk about the requirements for the face characters for cinderella's sisters? i know they're face characters, but can't seem to find any info on auditioning for them.
There isn’t a whole lot of information on the stepsisters, simply because like any face character, the decision made on whom to cast will be based on how the casting directors visualize the role. They’ll use photos or headshots of existing actors in those roles and compare the ladies auditioning to see if they match.
You cannot go in specifically requesting to be cast as a stepsister, or any specific role- the directors will put you where they think you fit best.
The average height range for the stepsisters is approximately 5’6” to 5’10”, I believe. A lot of the villain’s looks are achieved with makeup, but I would expect that unlike a role for a princess face character, they would actually look for a distinguishable feature such as Anastasia’s round nose or Drizella’s more pointed one to match the look of the role.

Surprise Announcement during “Undiscovered Disneyland”
The main event was undoubtedly Tony Baxter, as he is “semi-retiring” from Imagineering. In addition to a ride-through of Journey into Imagination (pieced together with Tony’s personal footage and various concept art/animation, which I will absolutely be posting)- we heard some incredible news today.
The Walt Disney company is honoring Tony Baxter by giving him his very own window on Main Street USA! Not to mention receiving the illustrious Legends award tomorrow afternoon.
Photos and video from Undiscovered Disneyland will be up in a few days.
