Sneak Peek at ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Attraction Coming to Tokyo Disneyland


(dramatic cinematic music) (trumpets blaring) – Today we’re going to be talking about an exciting new ride attraction that’s coming to Tokyo
Disneyland expansion, Enchanted Tale of Beauty and the Beast. As many of us know, Beauty and the Beast is a classic, timeless film that many people around the world continue to love and watch,
and especially here in Tokyo. Enchanted Tale of Beauty and the Beast is a unique ride attraction that really immerses guests in that story, and we’re going it in a brand new way that’s never been done before. So we’ve got a lot of exciting work done so far on this project. A lot of what you see here is some of that environmental work, some of the theme plaster
work, sculpting, and paint work that’s going to be done for the project that’s really gonna make
this story come to life in a very immersive way for our guests. – We’re very excited to be creating the first ride through attraction of Beauty and the Beast
anywhere in the world right here at Tokyo Disneyland. This is the first time we’ve
realized Belle or the Beast as an Audio-Animatronics figure anywhere. – So with our advanced technology now, we can actually bring
these characters to life, and bring them off the screen, and have people experience
them in the attraction. – We’ve got a lot of animated figures, lot of animated props. We have large-scale,
like our Beast figures, all the way down to
small-scale animated props. – One of the coolest things
about working on this project is we got to work with the
artists and the animators from Walt Disney Animation Studios, some of whom even worked on the original Beauty and
the Beast film from 1991. – We’re working with the
Walt Disney Animation Studios to get their model and get their animation and then our team here
engineers them, builds them, and then we program
them using the animation from the Animation Studios. – And every day I look
forward to coming out here, working on a new figure,
working with different teams, to see these figures come to life. – The ride vehicle itself gives
guests this feeling of dance and as you know, the music
of Beauty and the Beast is such a huge part of that experience, and this vehicle allows them to do that by giving them the sensation of actually dancing to this music. – To have them actually get that sensation of dancing, or ice skating, or interacting with the
figures as they go around, so the vehicle feels like it’s alive. – We’re going to integrate the
movement of our ride vehicle with our figures with
our amazing show sets all inside that phenomenal Beast castle. Everything will work together to seamlessly tell this amazing story. – [Tara] We get to be a part of the show, experience it as if we
were in enchanted objects. – [Jim] One of the aspirational
experiences for our guests is actually to be going
into that ballroom, that iconic ballroom that
they know from the film, and dancing through that
ballroom with our characters that they know and love. – Beauty and the Beast was
my favorite movie as a kid, and it’s just been such a blessing to be able to be here, bringing it to life with this team of really talented people. – I just can’t wait for guests to see it. I can’t wait for myself to experience it. (gentle strings and piano music)

  1. '' in a way never been done before'' .. looks literally like a mix between Ratatouille in Paris.. and Symbolica ( efteling, The netherlands ) but ok,.

  2. So it's gonna be like The Little Mermaid ride? Basically just riding through a show with cool animatronics but basically nothing happens in the ride.

  3. so excited for this! but i probably won't be able to go because going to Tokyo is expensive and far away from where i am. but once it's open, i'm sure people will love it!

  4. Ok Tokyo Disney or any thing Disney in Tokyo are getting the good stuff like Tokyo Disney sea literally got another 20,000 leags under the sea! know there getting a beauty and the beast ride!!!

  5. Wish we had one here at walt Disney world turned be our guest restaurant and enchanted tales of beauty and the beast

  6. Amazing!! I live in the US. I don't think I'll ever get to Tokyo Disneyland but I hope lots of people upload the full ride on Youtube so I can experience it second-hand. 🙂 Why didn't Orlando DisneyWorld think of this idea?!? Absolutely incredible!
