Disney Shares Promo Footage Featuring New ‘Fantasmic!’ Scenes at Walt Disney World

Right after sharing photos of the updated “Fantasmic!”, Disney also shared new footage of these new scenes coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The new footage shows off the updated lighting, projection, and fountain systems. We also see footage of the updated “Pocahontas”, “Aladdin”, “Mulan”, “Moana”, and “Frozen 2” sequences.

The Disney Parks blog explained the entire updated sequence as such: “Through this entire sequence, we go on a journey with our heroes. We see them faced with a decision, and how hard that can be for them, then watch as they find that strength within themselves to push through in a truly spectacular way,” says Disney Live Entertainment Show Director, Matthew Hamel. 

And spectacular it is. The new heroes sequence features a high-energy Aladdin chase with stunts never before seen on the “Fantasmic!” stage, a powerful scene with Elsa set to the song “Show Yourself” that is sure to thaw the most frozen of hearts, and stirring moments with Pocahontas, Moana and Mulan. Fun fact: To help choreograph the authentic Chinese martial arts you’ll see in Mulan’s scene, the creative team brought in Mimi Chan – the original muse and model animators used when bringing the character of Mulan to life for the 1998 animated film.
