Ahead of its debut on Disney+, Disney has released the trailer for Behind the Attraction. This original series for Disney+ will bring guests behind the scenes at some of the most beloved Disney attractions worldwide.
In the trailer, we cannot only see the US parks, but we also catch a glimpse of TRON at Shanghai Disneyland and Hollywood Tower Hotel with bellhop Cedric at Disneyland Paris. We even see Imagineer Joe Rhode, who retired from the Walt Disney Company earlier this year.
This original series will run for 10 episodes, of which the first 5 will be available on Disney+ on July 21. These are the first five episodes:
Jungle Cruise: Join a skipper for the story behind Jungle Cruise, and try to spot the backside of water! When Walt decided to create the original immersive attraction, he tasked Imagineers with building a river AND the mechanical animals to populate it.
Haunted Mansion: Welcome, foolish mortals, to the Haunted Mansion — enter if you dare! When Walt Disney developed the attraction, he didn’t specify if it should be funny or scary, and so it became a perfect blend of both.
Star Tours: Lightspeed to Endor! A long time ago…Disney created Star Tours, a thrilling simulator attraction that takes guests to a galaxy far, far away. It inspired Imagineers to build a whole new land — Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror: Discover the ups (and downs!) of creating this gravity-defying attraction set in the eerie world of Rod Serling’s renowned “Twilight Zone” television series. Then hold on tight as Imagineers reimagine the Disney California Adventure Park version as Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!
Space Mountain: You’re about to hear the story of Space Mountain in T-minus 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…launch! Walt’s vision of an attraction that simulates space travel was a design challenge Imagineer John Hench tackled head-on, creating a signature structure in Disney Parks around the world.
