Streaming All Episodes At Once, the 10-part Original Series is Executive Produced by Dwayne Johnson (“Jungle Cruise”) and Dany Garcia through their Seven Bucks Productions banner; Directed by Brian Volk-Weiss (“The Toys That Made Us”) from The Nacelle Company; and Narrated by Paget Brewster (“Criminal Minds”)
“BURBANK, Calif.– Disney attractions around the world have long been enchanting visitors in magical ways for generations. To celebrate the July 30 release of the Disney feature film “Jungle Cruise,” inspired by the Disney Parks attraction which debuted in 1955 with the opening of Disneyland® park, Disney+ will premiere all episodes of its newest original series “Behind the Attraction” on Friday, July 16. The 10-part series, narrated by Paget Brewster, gives viewers an exclusive peek ‘behind the curtain’ of the most beloved attractions and destinations at Disney Parks and Resorts around the world, from Jungle Cruise to “it’s a small world” to the Haunted Mansion to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Hear the unique story behind each Castle at the Parks and learn how Disney Imagineers designed and built them and discover the intricacies of the transportation systems at each park, and how the iconic Disneyland® Hotel came to be.”
“Behind the Attraction” delves into Disney Parks’ rich, amazing history using archival and never-before-seen footage and photographs to unveil how the attractions came to be and how they’ve been refined over the years as new ideas surface and technology evolves.”
In a statement last year posted on the Disney website The Rock was quoted as saying:
“Since 1955, when Disneyland first opened its doors, the rides and attractions have been impacting generations in such a fun and magical way around the world. This first-of-its-kind series will bring you behind the scenes to experience and celebrate how these beloved attractions creatively came to be. Hope to make Walt and the ‘mouse house’ proud with this one.”
The Rock recently engaged in a back and forth with AEW’s ‘Le Champion’ Chris Jericho, saying he still owes the first-ever Undisputed WWF Champion a receipt.
