“Tarzan: Call of the Jungle” will be one of the major shows at Shanghai Disneyland. Located inside Adventure Isle the show although inspired by the storyline of Disney's animated classic, will pay tribute to Chinese circus acrobatics and probably will be part at SDL of the elements that Iger called "distinctly Chinese". Thanks to a video released at D23 and filmed by Mouse Steps we'll have a closer look with never seen before renderings as well as footage of the Chinese acrobats rehearsal. But first, here is the official description of the show:
At Adventure Isle Storyhouse Stage, “Tarzan: Call of the Jungle” will present a powerful theatrical re-telling of the classic Edgar Rice Burrough’s story about a boy who is raised by apes and finally becomes the King of the Jungle. This musical will feature the iconic score, by Phil Collins, from the animated Disney feature film Tarzan, as it fuses immersive theatricality and Chinese acrobatics with an imaginative spirit.
The rehearsals are happening currently in huge room as you'll see below.
Here is the full video from where these screen captures are coming, to see the whole thing in movement, and i'll see you soon for more about Shanghai Disneyland!
