Earlier this evening the Disney company officially announced that ‘Disney’s Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular’ at the Hyperion theater will be ending its run on January 10, 2016 and will be replaced by a new ‘Frozen’ musical. Millions of guests have enjoyed the 45 minute ‘Aladdin’ production since it’s official opening on January 16, 2003 and has since been a staple of the Hollywood Land area of California Adventure.
As part of the announcement, Dana Harrel, Portfolio Creative Entertainment Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering stated:
“Our stage production of ‘Frozen’ will stay true to the heart and soul of the film. Anna and Elsa will carry the audience on an emotional journey that includes show-stopping production numbers and a few unique theatrical twists. We can’t wait for everyone to see it!”
It is still unknown whether the Academy-award songwriting team, Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, will be returning to write music for this new show. The new musical is set to debut Summer 2016.
Keeping a classic won’t go out of style and people still love it no matter how many times theyve seen it or not. Aladdin holds a special place in my heart and it was this particular show that has inspired me in so many ways. This is my favorite attraction of DCA, let alone my favorite out of both WDW and DLR…and that’s saying a lot considering how many attractions and shows there are between both resorts. I could watch this show everyday and not get tired of it. The amount of magic this show continues shower every single guest that enters the Hyperion is incredible. I love Aladdin and would love to see it last for a long time. KEEP ALADDIN! Listen to the feedback Disney. KEEP. ALADDIN.
