New films coming to Epcot including a new Awesome Planet film

Disney announced today that they are updating all the films that are presented in Epcot.  The announcement includes a new film that will be known as Awesome Planet for the Land pavilion.  Here’s the details:

Disney – “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.

Awesome Planet

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.

“Beauty and the Beast” Sing-Along will rotate, for instance, with “Impressions de France,” which retains its place in Guinness World Records as the longest-running daily screened film in the world.

What do you think of these updates?

  1. The only thing I don’t want them to change at EPCOT is the German Music presentation. We always eat there & love the music.

  2. They are changing every single thing I loved.
    This is how I think their meetings go:

    Disney VIPs: “What do people love?”
    People: “We love Impressions of France.”
    Disney VIPs: “OK. Lets change Impressions of France.”

    Sad but so true!!

    1. Romo, I didn’t see any mention of updating Impressions of France. But let’s face it, it could use a little refresh too, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it happens. They can easily keep the fantastic music score and gorgeous vistas, but maybe get rid of the 70s wardrobe LOL!

  3. I just hope they don’t remove Marin Short from the Canada movie. My kids love him. Wonder if he ever got to use that Soarin fast pass?

  4. I love the French movie. I had always hoped they would update it. The music is fabulous. I hope they will update it too.

    1. Since it mentions it holding a record, I doubt they will touch it. That’s why they are alternating it with the Beauty and the Beast thing
