Disney+ has released a trailer for a new 10-part series which debuts next week.
Behind the Attraction tells the stories behind some of the most iconic rides and attractions in Disney’s Parks and Resorts around the world.
The series uses archival and never-before-seen footage and photographs to show how the attractions came to be and how they have evolved over the years, including the Jungle Cruise, It’s a Small World and Haunted Mansion to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
Disney+ will drop five episodes on Wednesday, July 21, and five more later this year.
Here’s the official blurbs from each and the trailer!
