We announced several months ago about all of the changes that were coming to Epcot during the D23 presentation. There were a lot of announcements made that were going to span several years for all the projects. Now we’re are quickly approaching the release of the updates coming to Walt Disney World with the new films coming to Epcot.  Three Epcot pavilions will be getting updated films and will include updated graphics.

Films coming to Epcot 2020

Awesome Planet

Awesome planet will be making its debut at the land Pavilion in Epcot. This will show off the incredible world around us. The new show is expected to explore the many environments and include “the dynamic story of our Earth”.  Although a lot is not known at this time, it is expected to be about a 15-minute film. Furthermore, It is expected that the film will likely provide an environmental message towards conservation.

Beauty and the Beast Singalong

This is probably one of the most anticipated of the new films coming to Epcot. Staying true to the original, this has been produced by Don Hahn. If you don’t know who that is, he is the producer of the Beauty and the Beast films bot live-action and animated.  One of the best parts of this film is that it will be narrated by none other than Angela Lansbury, who voiced Mrs. Potts in the animated Beauty and the Beast film. However, it is important to note that this will also be in rotation with the original film France,” Impressions de France”.  Similarly, the hope is that it will be similar to the Frozen sing-along at Hollywood Studios as this has been wildly popular.

Canada Far and Wide

Whether you like “O Canada!” or not, there will be a new film taking its place in the Canada Pavilion. Canada Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 360 will be an update to the old film. Moreover, the film is narrated by two new actors, Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara. The film will bring in Canadian composer Andrew Lockington to provide a new musical score.

If you have a Disney trip planned in late January 2020, then you should be able to see these three new shows.  All of the films will debut on January 17th, 2020. This is also the start date of Epcot International Festival of the Arts.
