In a recent interview with LA Times Chief Executive Daniel Lamarre shared details on the opening of Cirque du Soleil’s “Drawn to Life” coming to Disney Springs.
Originally “Drawn to Life,” was set to open in Spring 2020 at Disney Springs but due to the COVID-19 shutdown at Disney World, the opening was pushed with no opening date in sight.
However yesterday Daniel shared some great news!
Cirque is also working on setting a new opening date for “Drawn to Life,” its collaboration with Disney that was set to open in Orlando, Fla., last year. “It’s a tribute to Disney animation, and we felt honored to have the opportunity to do a show with the IP [intellectual property] of Disney,” Lamarre said. “We should be able to open sometime in the fall.”
Drawn to life follows the story of Julie, a courageous and determined girl who discovers an unexpected gift left by her late father: an unfinished animation piece. Guided by a surprising pencil, she embarks on an inspiring quest sprinkled with her Disney childhood memories. Through this journey, she learns to imagine new possibilities and animate the story of her future.
“Drawn to Life” is the product of a collaboration between Cirque du Soleil, Walt Disney Animation Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering.
