The show will take place with the Tree of Life setting the backdrop along Discovery River between Expedition Everest and Discovery Island. “Rivers of Light” will feature mystical hosts that arrive with gifts of light. They perform elaborate dances of water and light to summon animal spirits.
As the enchanting story continues to build magical fireflies transform the Tree of Life by awakening the animal spirits and bringing them to “light”, all ending in an explosion of Animal life.
Master Puppet Designer, Michael Curry, composer Mark Mancina, and Disneynature filmmakers collaborated with Disney Imagineers and Creative Entertainment to bring this nighttime spectacular to life. This show will give Animal Kingdom an awe inspiring end of day experience for guests.
Enjoy your sneak peek and follow along with Chip and Company in the following months as details continue to be unveiled.
