LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Tickets have gone on sale for the NEW Cirque du Soleil Drawn to Life, coming to Disney Springs, and they are already starting to sell out.
The highly anticipated, family friendly show coming to Disney Springs was written and directed by Michel Laprise and Fabrice Becker as Director of creation. This collaboration between Cirque du Soleil, Walt Disney Animation Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering opens for previews March 20, 2020, and the official premiere on April 17, 2020.
This new show 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.
The show is a result of years of research and extraordinary collaboration that included extensive visits to Disney theme parks, Walt Disney Archives, Walt Disney Imagineering, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, The Walt Disney Family Museum, as well as hands-on work between Disney animators and Cirque du Soleil. In fact, the Cirque du Soleil teams collaborated extensively with legacy animators to create the show.
