When a show closes, another must open — and that is exactly the plan for two of the world’s biggest entertainment giants.

Cirque du Soleil and the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, announced on Dec. 18 that they have a new show in the works. The long-awaited production will take the place of La Nouba, which has graced Walt Disney World Orlando stadium since 1998.

Better news still, Fox 35 reported, fans could expect a thoroughly “Disneyfied” version of a great Cirque performance.

The still limited production “we will celebrate Disney’s legacy of storytelling at Cirque du Soleil, the signature of the way, with a tribute to the one-of-a-kind craftsmanship that makes Disney so special,” the companies announced in a joint statement, a tribute to Disney’s animation heritage.

“We are incredibly inspired by Disney’s huge creative universe. We are convinced that bringing the Disney magic to life on stage will touch the audience and bring them back to their childhood,” said President and CEO of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group, Daniel Lamarre.

Although a reopening date is not yet known for the new show, TravelPulse reports will be hosted by Orlando Disney Springs. The Orlando Sentinel says that executives at both companies have kept quiet about the project since La Nouba the closure was announced in the spring.
