The Jungle Book Jive
Source The Jungle Book Jive was a street show at Disneyland Park (Paris) that premiered on June 30, 2019, as part of a promotional event titled " The Lion King & Jungle Festival".
The park recycled the
"Dreams of Adventure" float from its former daytime parade, Disney Magic on Parade, which ran until early 2017, at which point it was replaced by Disney Stars on Parade.
2020, the show returned, but it will be located in Moteurs... Action! Stunt Show Spectacular stage at Walt Disney Studios Park and will be utilizing the Lineberty reservation system on the app, after being temporarily closed from March 15 until July 15 due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The show travels all across the park, inviting guests to swing along in front of
Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant with iconic Characters including Baloo and King Louie, plus lots of performers brought in especially from India, a parade of outsize animals, and Camille Mesnard as "GhôlDivah".
Behind the scene
There are nearly 70 characters and performers in the cast, including drummers coming especially from the state of Rajasthan, India.
Ten Disney characters are part of the show:
Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy, Chip and Dale, Clarice, Baloo and King Louie. Gigantic, colorful animals up to 5m high are used by artists as musical instruments.
A team from Disneyland Paris spent several weeks in India, including the state of Rajasthan, to get inspiration and create the most immersive experience possible.
Iconic songs from
The Jungle Book were specially orchestrated by American composer Roger Butterley, including The Bare Necessities, I Wan'na Be Like You and Trust in Me. He also composed an exclusive song just for this show. It took two years to fully develop this new show, including a full month of rehearsals in-studio and in the park at night.
