More than two years after the last Cirque du Soleil performance at Disney Springs, its replacement show now has a name.
The show will be called “Drawn to Life.” Developed by Cirque in collaboration with Disney animators and Walt Disney Imagineering, the new performance will follow a character named Julie as she “embarks on an inspiring quest sprinkled with her Disney childhood memories,” according to a Cirque press release.
“We had the chance to work with some of the animators that have worked on iconic Disney movies,” says Fabrice Becker, creation director at Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group, said in a prepared statement. “You’ll get to meet some of your favourite characters, but maybe in a very different way.”
“Drawn to Life” is the 50th production created by Cirque.
The last Cirque show at its Disney Springs theater, “La Nouba,” closed on Dec. 31, 2017 after a 19-year run. The first preview for “Drawn to Life” is scheduled for March 20, 2020, with the official premiere taking place on April 17.
Tickets have been on sale since August. Prices start at $67 per person for the previews and $79 after the premiere.
