'Villains Unite the Night' is the new stage show coming to Disney Villains After Hours at the Magic Kingdom this summer

The official Disney Parks Blog has today released more information on the upcoming Disney Villains After Hours coming to the Magic Kingdom this summer.

The new 20 minute villains stage show will be called 'Villains Unite the Night,' and will take place three times each night.

In addition to the stage show, Maleficent from Festival of Fantasy Parade will be let loose into the park, and special overlays will be found at Space Mountain and Pirates of the Caribbean.

According to the Disney Parks Blog post, "A dark magic is taking over Magic Kingdom Park and inviting you to run amuck in the Villains’ scary world. The party DJ gets things lit, energizing the castle stage with sick beats and transforming the entire Central Plaza of the park into a killer club scene. As the party heats up, the DJ introduces your “Caretaker” for the evening, the Lord of the Dead, Hades, who arrives in a burst of blue flames for the all-new show, “Villains Unite the Night.”

With Meg by his side, Hades sits atop his dark throne awaiting the alignment of five planets, following a prophecy that states when the five come together he will be able to rule the universe. But this dastardly plan doesn’t go quite as expected, when an assemblage of Disney Villains interrupts his party. Jafar, The Queen, Dr. Facilier and Maleficent arrive with henchmen in tow, prepared to showcase their power with spine-tingling displays of skill. It seems these Villains have also heard the prophecy and believe they are the ones who will rule all."

“I think guests will really be impressed with ‘Villains Unite the Night!’” said Kate Pappas, managing producer with Disney Parks Live Entertainment. “This show is going to be more than 20 minutes long and run three times each night of the event, so everyone will have a chance to see all these great Villains on stage. Add in our amazing DJ, and the hub of the park will be pulsing with energy all night long!”
