For those who have dreamed of being a part of their favorite Disney movies will soon get that chance.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Walt Disney Studios and Secret Cinema, the company behind unique, immersive movie-based experiences, have signed a multi-title agreement for the London-based outfit to tackle some of Disney’s most iconic films.
It is very likely that films with popular unique worlds from franchises such as The Pirates of the Caribbean, Tron, Avengers and Star Wars will be tackled as they are both popular ongoing franchises with worlds that are popular to the average movie-goer. However, Details for which titles will be adapted into secret worlds are still being discussed, but Secret Cinema will work with Disney’s StudioLAB, the studio’s tech-focused storytelling laboratory hub, to find the best way to adapt the movies into event worlds.
The first show is due to premiere in London later this year. However, the deal also calls for Secret Cinema to expand overseas, with experiences being planned for Los Angeles and New York. Additional locations globally could also happen.
Here is how the trade describes Secret Cinema and how are our favorite movies become a part of our moviegoing experience:
Secret Cinema is a unique and immersive movie-screening series that, as the company touts, revolutionizes the way people experience a film. Fusing film with live music, art, theater and dance, Secret Cinema creates elaborate authentic worlds where the movie’s story lives and breathes, placing the audience at the heart of the action and bringing the story to life.
The company converts huge spaces into movie worlds where actors play out storylines and hero moments each night of the production. Audiences participate by becoming part of the show and story, from the moment they buy a ticket to when they are assigned a character and are transported into the preshow narrative. Filmgoers step into the world of the movie, becoming their character, and uncover secret storylines and participate as if they were inside the film itself.
“Working with The Walt Disney Studios is much more than access to a treasure trove of titles, it’s about bringing together a unique combination of skills and expertise to build ever more authentic and amazing experiences, raising the bar again for what we mean by ‘immersive cinema,’” said Secret Cinema CEO Max Alexander.
