Disney and Cirque du Soleil reveal more details about their upcoming collaborative show, Drawn to Life.

Are you excited for the premiere of Cirque du Soleil and Disney’s first-ever creative collaboration, Drawn to Life? If you have your tickets ready and are counting down the days, Disney just released a teaser to give you a taste of what you can expect.

So far, we know it will be the story of a father and his daughter (Julie) taking a trip through a hundred years’ worth of Disney animations. And, as you would expect from a Cirque du Soleil performance, it’ll have a lot of mind-boggling acrobatic sequences (10 in total).

Now, Disney and Cirque du Soleil have released info about two of these amazing performances: “Garden of Lines” and “The Old Mill.”

“Garden of Lines” is a unicycle act featuring Julie, who discovers a magical land of animation. It includes a marionette and five unicyclists portraying the Blue Fairy from Pinocchio. The acrobats ride their unicycles across the stage in a synchronized pattern and also perform individual tricks.

Drawn to Life Details: “The Old Mill”

“The Old Mill” is a double wheel act that takes inspiration from its namesake 1937 animated Disney short, which plays behind the performers as they create a windmill with their double wheels. Owls dreamed up by Julie attempt to escape from a storm with high winds and rain that threatens their windmill home. As they try to find a path through the storm, the acrobats bring the windmill to life with gravity-defying stunts.

Premiering Nov. 18, 2021

Drawn to Life will debut on Nov. 18, 2021, at Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort. The show, which will feature 62 artists, is the 50th production by Cirque du Soleil, and it coincides with the 50th anniversary of WDW Resort.

WDW Magazine will be there for opening day. Check back in on our blog and follow us Instagram and Facebook for live details about Drawn to Life.
