VIDEO: Disney Previews How Animation and Acrobatics Blend in Cirque du Soleil ‘Drawn to Life’ Coming to Disney Springs November 18

Cirque du Soleil returns to Walt Disney World November 18 with “Drawn to Life.” The new show is a collaboration among Cirque du Soleil, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and Walt Disney Imagineering.


A video released by Disney shows how animation and acrobatics blend to create the new show. All-new animation sequences have been created for “Drawn to Life.” “Drawn to Life” reinterprets classic Disney Animation through Cirque du Soleil’s innovative design, acrobatics, choreography, and creative costuming. The show also features a score inspired by Disney music.

The video features Eric Goldman, the show’s animation director. Goldman started with Disney in 1990. He supervised the animation of Genie in “Aladdin.”
