ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — A popular Pixar film is being incorporated into a classic Disney attraction.
Mickey’s PhilharMagic in Magic Kingdom will soon include a new animated scene based on the film “Coco,” Disney announced this week.
The scene will use the musical number “Un Poco Loco” to anchor the new scene, Disney said in a blog post.
“The film’s fun, upbeat music and characters combined with the humor of Donald Duck marks the first time Disney and Pixar animators have worked on a creative endeavor where characters from both animation studios will be seen together on screen,” Disney said.
The park said it tapped one of the film’s original composers, world-renowned Germaine Franco, to produce a “Coco” score unique to Mickey’s PhilharMagic.
The new scenes will debut at Magic Kingdom later this year during the Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th anniversary celebration but will premiere in Disney California Adventure and Disneyland Paris on July 17.
