Disney announced at D23 in August 2019 that the new show, named “Drawn to Life”, will open to the public on April 17, 2020.
The show is a collaboration between Cirque du Soleil, Walt Disney Imagineering, and Walt Disney Animation Studios. According to Disney, the show will “celebrate the art of animation through the magic of storytelling in a way that only Cirque du Soleil can deliver while paying homage to the craftsmanship that makes Disney animation special and unique.”
Below is the description of the show’s story:
“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.”
