Awesome Planet

‘Awesome Planet’ Film and More are Coming to Epcot!

Through the magic of Disney, Epcot inspires guests to see the real world in more fantastic ways.  One of the ways is the cinematic excellence that Disney brings to the big screen.  Coming to The Land pavilion at Epcot is a new film – Awesome Planet!

Awesome Planet is an on-screen exploration of the realm we call home.  It showcases the spectacular beauty, diversity, and dynamic story of our planet.  The new film was created by Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) and brings spectacular nature photography, immersive in-theater effects, and space sequences.  Industrial Light & Magic provided the cinematic foundation for the Star Wars franchise!  Awesome Planet will deliver an environmental message that will resonate with its guests long after the final scenes.

The new film will be shown at the Harvest Theater (2nd floor) inside The Land pavilion.  ‘Circle of Life: An Environmental Fable’ was previously shown at the Harvest Theater before it closed on February 2018 after 23 years.

Disney has yet to announce an opening date for Awesome Planet.  But the new film will go great with the theme of The Land pavilion which already includes Living With The Land and Soarin’.

In addition, O Canada! at the Canada pavilion will be getting an update to the film.  O Canada! was filmed in 1981 and made its debut in 1982.  It received an update in 2007, but has been in need of an update ever since.  No date has been announced for the new film.

A new Circle-Vision film is heading to the China pavilion.  Reflections of China is the current Circle-Vision film that debuted in 2003, replacing The Wonders of China which ran from 1982 to 2003.  Disney has yet to announce a date for the new film.

Finally, a new guest offering, Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along, is coming to the France pavilion.  This is in addition to Impressions de France.  In case you didn’t know, France pavilion is getting a new attraction, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, opening in time for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World in 2021!
