New Disney+ docuseries to share the stories ‘Behind the Attraction’
A new, 10-episode, hour-long series called “Behind the Attraction” is coming exclusively to Disney+.
The series will be produced by Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia’s Seven Bucks Productions and The Nacelle Company, and will give viewers a look behind the scenes of Disney’s most popular attractions by speaking directly with the Imagineers and creatives who brought them to life.
The episodes will offer a deep-dive into the history of how these Disney attractions came to life, and how they’ve been revamped as new technology and ideas are developed. “Behind the Attraction” will also include interactions with fans who obsess over every detail of the rides they love.
“Since 1955, when Disneyland first opened its doors, the rides and attractions have been impacting generations in such a fun and magical way around the world,” said Johnson, executive producer and co-founder of Seven Bucks Productions. “This first-of-its-kind series will bring you behind the scenes to experience and celebrate how these beloved attractions creatively came to be. Hope to make Walt and the ‘mouse house’ proud with this one.”
“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to lift the curtain and offer our global audience a captivating experience by bringing the stories behind these magical attractions to life, alongside our brilliant partners at Disney+ and The Nacelle Company,” said Garcia, also an executive producer and co-founder of Seven Bucks Productions.
The series will also be executive produced by Hiram Garcia, Brian Gewirtz, and Kevin Hill from Seven Bucks Productions, along with Brian Volk-Weiss, Robin Henry, and Cisco Henson from The Nacelle Company. Brian Volk-Weiss will serve as the director.
“I have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming that I’m in business with Seven Bucks AND Disney+ at the same time – and on such a fun and exciting show!” said Volk-Weiss, executive producer and founder of The Nacelle Company.
“Behind the Attraction” is just another part of Disney+’s unscripted and nonfiction slate, which includes launch titles like “The World According to Jeff Goldblum” from National Geographic and produced by Nutopia; “Encore!,” executive produced by Kristen Bell; and the upcoming unscripted short-form series “Muppets Now.”
Disney+ will launch in select geographic regions, including the U.S., Canada, and The Netherlands on Nov. 12. To learn more and sign up early, visit DisneyPlus.com.
