“The film is both a prequel and a sequel, so you travel through time,” says Greg Mason, vice-president of marketing at Walt Disney Studios, Canada. “That was the inspiration for this pop-up. It’s great for the whole family, kids and adults. You can become whatever character you want, you can take your picture with Time. It’s fun to bring a slice (sorry for the cake pun) of Hollywood to Toronto, to bring that excitement.”
