PHOTOS, VIDEO: New “Canada Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 360” Film Debuts in the Canada Pavilion at EPCOT

Canada, my Canada… you’re a lifetime journey for the traveler…

Welcome to WDWNT’s coverage of the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts 2020! As you may know, today marks a major milestone for the park as three new films debut throughout the park. Over in the Canada Pavilion, we’re celebrating the return of the pavilion’s iconic film, albeit slightly updated. The new “Canada Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 360” 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.

The new entrance marquee features the main show title in bold, red letters, plus some signage for Le Cellier Steakhouse, which is also debuting a new brunch offering just for the festival.

The theater’s exterior is now covered in faux moss to alleviate upkeep on the facade.

New directional signage leads guests down towards the cavernous entrance.

A digital wait times board was installed a few weeks ago. It appears to still be missing the hanging lanterns at each end.

Inside, one of everyone’s favorite features are this carpet that resembles wood flooring.

As we hinted at the beginning, the classic track “Canada (You’re a Lifetime Journey)” song performed by Canadian Idol winner Eva Avila does make a comeback, but with the original vocal track stripped of any autotune and set to new music.

You can catch the full Canada Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 360 in the video below!

I have been yesterday, and honestly: very disappointed with the changes so far! The movie alternate old scenes with new which I believe to be unnecessary, they could go with a brand new movie instead. The beauty and the beast was even more of a pain… we do expect much more and Disney should know better! It is not that difficult to go above this!

Join the discussion…I’m in total agreement with Juliana. What a disappointment. You had two great performers Catherine O’Hara and Eugene Levy and gave them nothing to work with. The just read an unfunny boring travel log. They are two really funny actors. They don’t even show their faces. Oh just forget about it! Bring back Martin Short.
