Disney just dropped some huge news about the nighttime events at Animal Kingdom. While the much anticipated Rivers of Light was expected to premiere, it will be put on hold. Instead, the success of the recent Jungle Book remake is turning heads, and Disney will bring an all new live musical experience to Animal Kingdom for a limited run!
The all new show will take place on Discovery River for the summer. “Jungle Book: Alive with Magic” is filled with music and special effects that celebrates the new film and the classic songs, now infused with an Indian influence.
The new film opened to rave reviews, and a huge opening weekend box office. With no other major films, the movie is expected to roll through the box office until Disney’s next Marvel film hits, Captain America: Civil War.
The new show, along with all the huge new nighttime offerings will start Memorial Day Weekend, and will run all summer long.
