The show is the first-ever collaboration between Cirque du Soleil, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and Walt Disney Imagineering. It follows the story of a young woman, Julie, who comes across an unfinished drawing left to her by her Disney Animator father. She then embarks on an exciting adventure guided by Mr. Pencil, who is—you guessed it—a pencil.

The Drawn to Life music score promises to bring even more energy to what will no doubt be a thrilling show filled with the types of unbelievable acrobatics Cirque du Soleil is known for.
