The all-new live entertainment experience, “The Jungle Book: Alive with Magic” nighttime show, begins its limited engagement run this weekend at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
From vibrant costumes and props to the unmistakable sound of the sitar and tabla drums, “The Jungle Book: Alive with Magic” brings India to Disney’s Animal Kingdom in a spectacular celebration of the epic tale from Disney’s blockbuster live-action film “The Jungle Book.” The show springs to life on the Discovery River, with dozens of performers filling five immense floating stages and spilling out into the audience with colorful production numbers that combine the most memorable story moments and songs from the film with an incredibly authentic Indian cultural influence.
We recently had a chance to peek behind the scenes and talk to a few members of the Creative Entertainment team, working hard to prepare “The Jungle Book: Alive with Magic” for its grand debut.
“The Jungle Book: Alive with Magic” will be performed nightly at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, starting May 28.
