Three new films make their debut at Epcot

by Brittani Tuttle

As part of the ongoing transformation of Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort, three new films have made their debut at the park.

  • “Awesome Planet,” showing in The Land pavilion, explores the spectacular beauty, diversity and dynamic story of Earth. In collaboration with the Disney Conservation Fund, this 10-minute film uses in-theater effects like wind, scents, and water to tell the story of life on our planet, and why it’s important to take care of it. “Awesome Planet” is narrated by Ty Burrell of ABC’s “Modern Family.”
  • “Canada Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 360” in the Canada pavilion is an update to the previous “O Canada!” film. This update includes new scenes, a new musical score by Canadian composer Andrew Lockington, and new narration by Catherine O’Hara and Eugene Levy.
  • “Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along” in the France pavilion’s Palais du Cinémas is directed and produced by Don Hahn, producer of both the animated and live-action versions of the story. This new experience invites guests to take part in a twist on a tale as old as time, and features narration from Angela Lansbury, who played Mrs. Potts in the original film. This new sing-along will run in rotation with “Impressions de France,” which received an upgrade to 4K projection.
