Music is a universal language and, as an art form, has the power to unite people of all generations. A characteristic that it has in common with Disney titles that have always made us dream, creating new memories and shared emotions. Music is not just accompaniment but a fundamental element of the Disney magic, in the parks but especially in every animated film with those characters we love so much and that have become iconic.
To celebrate the power of the stories and characters that have entered our hearts, is there a better way than a beautiful musical that brings them all together? No, there isn’t and if you’re at Disneyland Paris there is, among the many must-see activities, a brand new production: it’s TOGETHER. Disneyland Paris will pay tribute each day to some of the best-loved Pixar characters on the stage of the Studio Theater located in the Walt Disney Studio Park accompanied by a live orchestra. Guests will thus embark on an incredible and poetic journey through the worlds of Toy Story, Coco, Up, Monsters Co and Finding Nemo.
Over the past few days, actresses Valentina Romani and Natalie Portman, digital entrepreneur Chiara Ferragni, French actor Omar Sy and many other international stars have had the opportunity to experience this new Pixar gem in antemprima. “TOGETHER a Pixar Musical Adventure” is driven by an artistic direction that combines traditional and cutting-edge technologies with creative lighting, multi-sensory effects and modern choreography, all accompanied by iconic music and original songs.
