“Through this entire sequence, we go on a journey with our heroes. We see them faced with a decision, and how hard that can be for them, then watch as they find that strength within themselves to push through in a truly spectacular way,” Disney Live Entertainment Show Director Matthew Hamel said in a Disney Blog post.

Disney said the sequence will include stunts never before seen on the “Fantasmic!” stage featuring Aladdin, a scene set to the song “Show Yourself” starring Elsa, and more featuring Pocahontas, Moana and Mulan.

“We know this show means so much to people, and we’ve kept that in mind every step of this journey.” Disney Live Entertainment Producer Laurice Marier said in the blog post. “Even beyond the new scene, we’ve taken this time to upgrade the lasers, the lighting, the sound, all to bring this show back even more beautiful than it’s ever been. We’re all really just so excited for guests to see it.”
