Disney has released a new behind the scenes video with a look at the new "Wonderful World of Animation."

The new projection show will debut May 1 2019 as part of the 30 year anniversary celebration of Disney's Hollywood Studios.

According to Disney, "Wonderful World of Animation" begins with Mickey Mouse, as the park’s iconic Chinese Theater transforms into the black-and-white world of the classic short film, “Mickey’s Gala Premiere.” From there, the show bursts forth in full color, celebrating Mickey’s starring role in “Fantasia” as it launches into sequences filled with magic, family, adventure, romance, villainy and friendship. Each theme is brought to life through unforgettable moments from Disney and Pixar animated films, from “Coco” and “The Incredibles” to “Sleeping Beauty” and “Ralph Breaks the Internet.”

Check out the video below for a look at the show in testing and to hear from Show Director Tony Giordano and other members of the Disney parks Live Entertainment team.
