If you dig Pixar, you might find yourself sticking around the theme park after dark.
One of the new night-time shows at Disney's Hollywood Studios is “The Music of Pixar Live! A Symphony of Characters." Now through August 27, characters and soundtracks from Pixar Animation Studios’ films take center stage inside the Theater of the Stars.
As you can see in the image above, the multi-media show includes a full orchestra. The 45-minute experience is a celebration of the music, animation and characters of Pixar films, incorporating large video screens. Fand will recognize music from films like “Toy Story,” “Up,” “Finding Nemo,” “Finding Dory,” “The Incredibles” and “Cars.”
Before a film's featured segment, characters add moments of comedy on stage. In a press release, Disney sent us these examples:
Mike and Sulley take the stage to collect laughs as Mike tries stand-up before the “Monsters, Inc.” segment comes on-screen. Woody, Jessie and Buzz Lightyear unwrap the “Toy Story” segment and “Up” is fronted by a special appearance of Carl Fredricksen and Dug. Can’t forget Dory (though she might!) – appearing before the “Finding Nemo” and “Finding Dory” segment.
We've learned that guests are greeted by Green Army Men. The closing finale is "You’ve Got a Friend in Me."
Showtimes will vary for “The Music of Pixar Live! – A Symphony of Characters.”
A 2nd new night-time show at Disney's Hollywood Studios is "Disney Movie Magic." The 10-minute experience bathes the park’s Chinese Theater in projection mapping technology that brings to life scores of classic movie moments.
“Mary Poppins," Tron :Legacy," "Pirates of the Caribbean," and "Beauty and the Beast" are among the films featured.
While "The Music of Pixar" goes through Aug. 27, we don't know yet how long "Disney Movie Magic" will be running.
