Alongside the return date, Disney also shared some more details about the new heroes sequence that will debut with the show.
This new segment, which replaces the former Pocahontas scene, will feature Mulan, Elsa, Aladdin, Pocahontas, and Moana in heroic moments. There will also be new technical enhancements.
Per Disney, “The new heroes sequence features a high-energy Aladdin chase with stunts never before seen on the ‘Fantasmic!’ stage, a powerful scene with Elsa set to the song ‘Show Yourself’ that is sure to thaw the most frozen of hearts, and stirring moments with Pocahontas, Moana and Mulan.”
It remains unclear if Fantasmic, like Festival of Fantasy and other select entertainment at Disney World, will be a Genie+ selection.
