    Exclamation Spaceship Earth Reimagining: Closure Date & First Concept Art

    Quote Originally Posted by Disney Parks & Resorts

    Spaceship Earth is more than just the physical icon of EPCOT – it’s a symbol of how the park continues to evolve. The attraction is a crucial piece of the historic transformation already underway at EPCOT, and our team here at Walt Disney Imagineering is excited to start implementing our new vision for Spaceship Earth beginning May 26.

    The next iteration of Spaceship Earth will focus on the story of humanity, following our long journey from prehistoric humans to today brought to life with magic and depth that only Disney can deliver. Many of the moments you know and love will be updated in amazing ways, blended with brand-new scenes to tell a story about our human experience.

    {In the reimagined attraction} you’ll visit Egypt, which is part of the current version of the attraction, but it will be an Egypt like you’ve never seen before, transformed through the power of light.

    Throughout the attraction, you’ll hear new narration and see how light plays a central role in our shared human journey, coming to life in dynamic ways in a celebration of the magic that’s possible when we all come together.

    Walt Disney once said EPCOT “would always be in a state of becoming,” and Spaceship Earth has lived up to that vision for generations. This will be the attraction’s fourth – and most ambitious – update since the park’s grand opening on Oct. 1, 1982.
    A re-opening date has not yet been announced, although a Late 2021/Early 2022 opening date would coincidence with the Walt Disney World resort 50th anniversary celebration.

    Doesn’t look too different to me other than the lighting effect. My only hope is that Morgan Freeman narrates the new journey
    Too many trips to keep track of now! Vacation WDW twice a year so any questions ask freely ☺️

    For sure, that rendering leaves a lot to be desired.

    A new narrator will be a welcome change for me.

    It could be very good, or it could end up very badly. Fingers crossed this is a positive change.
