Tony here: For everyone that were too young to have seen it or just didn’t make it out to the Disney Florida Animation studio tour while it was going running, here is a (not great) copy of the Robin Williams and Walter Cronkite film that took the guests through the animation process and the tour of our work environment. Tom and I heard this all day long over and over and over…and over. Yet we still loved it.
The scene in the train station where a young boy smiles at Cyclops and he smiles back was unplanned. The boy was a huge X-Men fan, and Cyclops was his favorite. The scene originally called for Cyclops to look at the train schedule, but according to Bryan Singer the boy could not stop smiling at James Marsden. Finally, during one shot, Marsden just looked back at him and smiled, much to the boy’s delight. Bryan Singer liked the idea so much, he kept it in the film
