As part of Epcot’s ongoing transformation, a new attraction will be coming soon to The Land Pavilion. Awesome Planet in an incredible on-screen exploration of Earth that showcases the spectacular beauty, diversity and dynamic story of our home.
- The Disney Parks Blog has announced that a new attraction is coming to The Land Pavilion at Epcot.
- One of the central and incomparable strengths of Disney—cinematic excellence—is coming to The Land pavilion at Epcot, occupying the space that was last home to the Circle of Life attraction.
- Awesome Planet, an on-screen exploration of the realm we call home, showcases the spectacular beauty, diversity and dynamic story of our earth with all the grandeur guests have come to expect.
- The new films debuting throughout Epcot herald a bold new era for a theme park that is distinctly Disney in its view of the earth, its lands and its people.
- We’re aware, of course, that each time we touch Epcot, we are touching the setting for millions of precious family memories. So, we are very careful stewards of this park.
- With spectacular nature photography, immersive in-theater effects, and space sequences created by none other than Industrial Light & Magic (which provided the cinematic foundation for the Star Wars franchise), Awesome Planet will stir Epcot guests and deliver an environmental message that will resonate far beyond its final scenes.
