New "Awesome Planet" Film 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, and its subject is as wide as the great, big, wonderful world around us.


“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. 

This new film – together with the new Circle-Vision film previously announced for the China pavilion, updates to the film at the Canada pavilion, and the “Beauty and the Beast” Sing-Along that is coming to France – hints at the scope of the coming transformation of this amazing park. The new films herald a bold new era for a theme park that is distinctly Disney in its view of the earth, its lands and its people.


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.

  1. PLEASE tell me this is replacing that Lion King film. That thing was so underwhelming and outdated that it was almost worse than nothing. It felt like you had been transported back to fourth grade, when the teacher would play those 30-year-old educational videos that were dumbed down with irrelevant animated characters and were so old that the watered-down facts weren't even accurate anymore. A modern video about nature and environmental issues--WITHOUT animated Disney characters-- would be a major improvement.
