New Rivers of Light: We Are One Show Coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom This Summer
In celebration of Earth Day and the 21st anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney announced that the park’s nighttime show Rivers of Light, is getting a make-over. After two years, Disney has finally caved and will be adding in characters from Disney animation and Disneynature films to the Rivers of Light nighttime show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. But that’s not all – An updated soundtrack will feature the show’s original musical score with newly integrated yet familiar Disney themes.
Since its introduction more than two years ago, “Rivers of Light” has enchanted Disney’s Animal Kingdom guests with a nighttime pageant of beautifully illuminated lantern floats, grand theatrical imagery, a soaring musical score and innovative special effects. This summer, the next chapter of this spectacle will unfold with the debut of “Rivers of Light: We Are One.”
“Rivers of Light: We Are One” introduces additional, stunning imagery and familiar animal characters from Disneynature films, along with a colorful tapestry of classic moments from Disney animation, to express our connection with animals and the emotions and milestones we all share in our journey through the great circle of life. Concept art for the show includes images from The Lion King and Africans Cats.
The music of “Rivers of Light: We Are One” weaves together the original musical score and familiar Disney themes to create a powerful arrangement that inspires and carries us through moments of discovery, fun, friendship, fear, love and family.
“Rivers of Light: We Are One” will debut at the Discovery River Amphitheater at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, beginning Memorial Day Weekend 2019. The new Tree of Life Awakenings featuring scenes from the animated The Lion King are also set to premiere the same weekend.
