While the sign does have a removable “COMING SOON” note beneath it, it’s beautifully 3-D printed, with the bold letters coming out against silver-blue backing.
“Awesome Planet” will be an on-screen exploration of the realm we call home, showcasing the spectacular beauty, diversity, and dynamic story of Earth with all the grandeur guests have come to expect. With spectacular nature photography, immersive in-theater effects, and space sequences created by none other than Industrial Light & Magic (which provided the cinematic foundation for the Star Wars franchise), “Awesome Planet” will stir EPCOT guests and deliver an environmental message that will resonate far beyond its final scenes.
The letters themselves are printed with a photo of the Earth as seen from space.
The sign is illuminated with a flood light with kaleidoscope cut-out, giving the sign some added dimension.
As for the illuminated sign that showed up here back (to the left in the photo above) in April, it appears that it has since been removed, with just the clip that held the sign off to the side. The illuminated sign was still there throughout the Food & Wine Festival, so it must be getting switched out.
What do you think of the new sign for Awesome Planet? What new film are you most excited for during the EPCOT Festival of the Arts 2020?
