Disneyland's fire-breathing dragon snuffed

We reported in June of last year that the debut of Maleficent, the 40-foot-tall, 10,000 pound mechanical automated fire-breathing dragon from Sleeping Beauty, in Summer Nightastic, Disneyland's big summer update of its spectacular Fantasmic light, water and fireworks show, would be delayed for weeks because its head fell off and its neck snapped during rehearsals.

Today Disneyland officials confirmed Maleficent is now out of the show indefinitely, after it collapsed during Saturday night's show (as seen in top photo).
