New details have been released of Tokyo DisneySea's version of the Fantasmic show, which will debut at the park in April 2011.
As previously announced, Fantasmic will replace the existing BraviSEAmo show. The current show will close on November 13, 2010 to allow construction of show elements for Fantasmic, which will be an updated version of the popular night-time spectacular from Disneyland and Disney's Hollywood Studios.
Tokyo DisneySea's Fantasmic will take place on the waters of Mediterranean Harbor, and will feature scenes from Disney movies including Aladdin, Cinderella and Finding Nemo. Like the U.S. versions, it will star Mickey Mouse and will use a combination of water, laser and pyrotechnic effects. Disney's press release mentions a fight between Mickey and a "gigantic dragon", suggesting that the fire-breathing animatronic dragon of the Disneyland version will make it across the Pacific. A video of the dragon in action is embedded below.
Tokyo DisneySea will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2011, and the park has seemingly brought forward the original 2012 opening date of Fantasmic by a year in order to open it in time for the celebrations. The park will spend around ¥3 billion Yen on the new show, which equates to around $33.1 million.
