VIDEO: Watch Many Sequences from the New “Harmonious” Nighttime Spectacular at EPCOT, Show Story Revealed
“Harmonious” will debut at EPCOT on October 1 for “The World’s Most Magical Celebration.” With just over two months to go before the premiere, Disney has revealed new details about the nighttime spectacular alongside a behind-the-scenes video.
“Harmonious” illuminates our shared humanity, bringing to life the vision of EPCOT through a celebration of our world and its promise. Over the years, cultures from around the world have provided inspiration for Disney films and music. In “Harmonious,” a global community of musical artists has come together and reinterpreted those familiar stories and songs in their own voice, honoring their respective cultures. Collectively, they contribute to a unique experience that could only happen at EPCOT, a place where the impossible becomes possible through the power of human imagination and the magic of Disney.
The show moves through three distinct chapters [gather, celebrate, and unite] , inviting us to gather on the shores of World Showcase Lagoon, celebrate the countries and cultures of the world, and ultimately unite to create a bright tomorrow. “Harmonious” begins with a sunrise, and as the world awakens around us, we set out on a journey that takes us across the globe. It’s a dazzling and diverse feast for the eyes and ears, from the South Pacific home of “Moana” and a Middle-Eastern interpretation of “Aladdin” to “The Jungle Book” in India, China’s legend of “Mulan,” the European nations that inspired “Brave” and “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” and so much more.
Take a look at some footage from “Harmonious” and more about the show from the Disney Live Entertainment and Walt Disney Imagineering teams below.
