Debuting as part of the Festival of the Arts at EPCOT, “Awesome Planet” in The Land pavilion will explore the spectacular beauty, diversity and dynamic story of Earth. Featuring an original musical score from Academy Award-winning composer Steven Price and in collaboration with the Disney Conservation Fund, the 10-minute film uses in-theater effects (including wind, scents, and water) to tell the story of life on this planet and why it’s vitally important to care for it.

Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along and Canada Far and Wide will also debut on January 17, 2020, bringing films back to many of the pavilions at EPCOT.
