SPECTACULAR SCENES SURROUND EPCOT AUDIENCES IN CANADIAN FILM

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla.—Walt Disney World guests get a glimpse of today's Canada in a newly enhanced 14-minute motion picture, scored by award-winning composer Bruce Broughton, and presented in Circle-Vision 360° as a major feature, of the Canada pavilion in Epcot World Showcase.

Titled "O Canada!," the film includes spectacular scenes that highlight Canada's natural beauty, cosmopolitan cities and diverse people who call Canada home. In addition to new, updated scenes, the film is hosted by Canadian actor Martin Short.

Walt Disney Imagineers collaborated with the Canadian Tourism Commission to update the film, including new orchestration and images. "Our goal was to strike the right balance between the vibrant cosmopolitan cities and the natural beauty that characterize Canada," according to Imagineer David Katzman. "We look forward to showcasing all its beauty and splendor to guests visiting the Canada pavilion at Epcot".

Circle-Vision 360° is a film technique that uses nine cameras for projection onto nine large screens arranged in a circle, usually above head level. By using an odd number of screens, and a small space between them, a projector may be placed in each gap, projecting across the space to a screen.

The motion picture takes guests from the far eastern shores of New Brunswick's Bay of Fundy by railroad to the western beauty and tranquility of Butchart Gardens in British Columbia. Canada's natural beauty is majestically displayed throughout the film, including new and classic scenes from the 800-year-old redwood trees of Cathedral Grove to the astounding splendor of Horseshoe Falls to the snowy Mountains of Kananaskis Valley.
