Hello Palace Mortals! It is I, your host sofieremix, back with another magical Disney Halloween Fact! This week, we are going to be posting facts about your favorite Halloween movies, including the Disney classics Halloweentown, Hocus Pocus, Haunted Mansion, etcetera! Let us know what Halloween movies you want to see covered this week! Let’s start out with a little tribute to the late Debby Reynolds. Debbie Reynolds, aka Aggie Cromwell, used to introduce herself as "Princess Leia's mother" to people on set. If you didn't already know, Debbie Reynolds was the mother of Carrie Fisher, who famously played Princess Leia in the Star Wars films. She also tried to be as helpful as possible to everyone around her and used to try and move ladders around for the crew. For her safety, they would say, "No, no, Ms. Reynolds!" Kimberly, who played Marnie, said, "She just wanted everybody to shine as bright as they could and the movie to be the best thing possible." 


In fact, Aggie and Marnie's infamous broom flying scene was the very last scene that was shot before the film wrapped. The scene is about 52 seconds long in the film, but in reality took hours to shoot. It was shot by using a broom propped up on a stool-like pole, with a blue screen surrounding it. Both actors had to climb a ladder to reach the broom. When it came to spells, most of them spells were actually in Welsh and very difficult to memorize. The cast was given an audiotape of the spell to memorize it, but Debbie took it upon herself to write the spell down phonetically on her notepad and share that with the rest of the cast. The cast misses her dearly and many of us know her and Carrie have moved on to a better place. May they Rest In Peace.
