Check out the new digital wait time board in the Canada pavilion! This will let you know when the new show’s about to start!
Details on Canada Far & Wide
The new Canada Far and Wide movie features two incredible actors — Eugene Levy and Katherine O’Hara! They are such an awesome duo on Schitt’s Creek and we’re thrilled they’re a part of THIS project! Although they don’t appear on the Circle-Vision screen, they provide an awesome narration to the scenic film showcasing Canada’s splendor!
Sorry, folks. We’re sad to report Martin Short, the host of O’Canada doesn’t make a cameo in the new film. We were hoping they’d find a way to squeeze him back in, but his comedic stylings didn’t make the cut this time!
But we did love the new footage of Canada Far and Wide which displays Canada’s bustling metroplexes as well as its natural beauty including its gorgeous coastlines, tranquil lakes, and serene forests. Watching the movie on the 360° screens made us feel like we were magically transported there!
While we’re still a little bummed to see Martin Short go, we thought the old movie was in need of some updates and the new version is a welcome addition to Epcot’s World Showcase! The new scenes are stunning and now we totally feel like we need to book a trip to Canada! 😉 See the film for yourself when it opens this Friday!
