“Fantasmic!” at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will make its much-anticipated return later in 2022 with a new show sequence featuring Disney characters – Mulan, Elsa, Aladdin, Pocahontas and Moana.
“New technical enhancements” are also on the books, though what that entails is as vague as the information on any sort of projected reopening. At a media event, it was confirmed that the Pocahontas scene in particular will get a big change with Frozen 2 characters when the show comes back.
Fantasmic has been closed at both domestic Disney parks since the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. The open-air nighttime musical boasts more than 50 live performers, massive sets, stunning effects, rousing music and dazzling pyrotechnics.
