New Finale Act for Drawn to Life at Disney Springs

Drawn to Life, presented by Cirque du Soleil and Disney, celebrates two years of captivating audiences in Disney Springs at Walt Disney World with acrobatics, animation, and more by introducing an emotional and breathtaking new finale honoring the relationship at the heart of its story between a father and his daughter.

The new ending features a swing-to-swing act with artists who soar across the stage between two swings, performing new awe-inspiring stunts, acrobatics, and choreography. The act is the culmination of the show’s story of its heroine, Julie, and her father, who was a Disney animator. The artists, representative of Julie and her father, perform in costumes inspired by the art of drawing and animation created by noted costume designer Philippe Guillotel.

The new finale Swing to Swing act celebrates the completion of the triumphant journey of Julie as she finishes the lines started in an animation left to her by her father to forever link them to one another. The daring acrobats in the number are kaleidoscopic animated renditions of Julie and her father soaring, flying, and swinging through the air in a touching and thrilling display of amplitude, connection and skill.
