Earlier this year, during the D23 Expo, details on new film experiences coming to Epcot® were unveiled including a new Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along, Awesome Planet, & Canada Far and Wide. These new shows will immerse you and your family in new scenes, picturesque journeys and allow you to enjoy a tale as old as time.
We now know that the three new films will debut as the Epcot International Festival of the Arts begins kicks off on January 17, 2020.
“Awesome Planet” in The Land pavilion showcases the Earth’s beauty and diversity in a 10-minute film featuring spectacular imagery, in-theater effects and an original musical score from Academy Award-winning® composer Steven Price.
“Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along” in the France pavilion is directed and produced by Don Hahn, producer of the animated and live-action “Beauty and the Beast” films, and invites guests to participate in a twist on a tale as old as time. It also features narration from Angela Lansbury, who played Mrs. Potts in the original film. The new sing-along will run in rotation with “Impressions de France,” which will receive an upgrade to 4K projection.
“Canada Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 360” in the Canada pavilion is an update to the previous “O Canada!” film with new scenes, a new musical score by Canadian composer Andrew Lockington and new narration by award-winning actors Catherine O’Hara and Eugene Levy.
