A new Cirque Du Soleil production made its debut on November 18, 2021 in Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs!
Drawn to Life Presented by Cirque du Soleil® & Disney combines Disney animation with the truly unique and stunning acrobatic performance of Cirque du Soleil. The production is a collaboration between Cirque du Soleil, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and Walt Disney Imagineering.
Drawn to Life finds its home on the West Side of Disney Springs in the same iconic “tent” theater in which La Nouba — the previous Cirque du Soleil production in Disney World — ran for 19 years. Disney has called Drawn to Life “a love letter to the art of Disney animation.”
The story of Drawn to Life follows Julie, who, according to Cirque Du Soliel, is, “a courageous and determined girl who discovers an unexpected gift left by her late father: an unfinished animation piece.”
Guided by a surprising pencil, she embarks on an inspiring quest sprinkled with her Disney childhood memories. Through this journey, she learns to imagine new possibilities and animate the story of her future.
