Fantasmic! to Return With New Show Features

| | |

Fantasmic! will return in 2022 to Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World with new show features and sequences!

This week at the D23 event, Destination D, Disney made many announcements about several entertainment offerings returning in 2022. One that we are most excited about is the news that Fantasmic! would be returning to both Walt Disney World and Disneyland in early 2022.

Today we have confirmation from Disney that there will be new features and sequences to the Fantasmic! show at Walt Disney World when it returns. While there have not been any confirmed details, the rumors are that the sequence will include live actors and replace the current Pocahontas scene. **Again, this has not been confirmed and we would never put any stock in anything until Disney states it directly. This rumor stems from the announcement back in early 2020 that Disney would be making changes in the show to steer away from stereotypes and encourage inclusion.

Back in 2019, Disney released this art of Moana joining Fantasmic in a Disney Doodle. We would love to see her join the show! **This is just speculation and hopeful wishes.

Work has been underway on refurbishing almost all areas of the Hollywood Hills Amphitheater, which includes a new lighting system, new fountains, and a rebuild of Steamboat Mickey.

While Fantasmic! is set to return in 2022 per Josh D’Amaro. However, we don’t know exactly what date that will be! Stay tuned for more details soon.
