The final preparations for Mickey and the Magical Map stage show are underway. This show is set to open on May 25th, 2013 inside the Fantasyland Theatre.
From the Disney Parks Blog:
There’s still a lot of work to be done to get ready for “Mickey and the Magical Map” to open May 25, but we wanted to give you a sneak peek at the newly refurbished stage inside the Fantasyland Theatre at Disneyland park. The theatre will be the setting for this all-new show, featuring a cast of live performers along with some of your favorite Disney friends – all interacting with the huge magical map which takes center stage throughout the performance. This first photo shows the opening title for the show, which is revealed during the first sequence.
This amazing, living map is created with an enormous, multi-tiered LED screen, which helps tell the story and allows for the inclusion of fantastic animation and visual effects, taking Mickey Mouse into the lands of his imagination. This wondrous map spans the entire length of the stage, covering 35,000+ square inches with nearly 1 million pixels. The second sneak-peek photo we have for you features the wise sorcerer Yen Sid, whose magical map is the centerpiece of the show.
Disney also provided some videos to our friends at Inside the Magic. Take a look at the video screens that are on stage and some rehearsal footage of the Jungle Book sequence.
Based on these images and footage I’m really starting to look forward to seeing this show. What do you think? Comment below and let us know!
