Disney’s Biggest Movies Like Star Wars to Be Adapted as Immersive Experiences by Secret Cinema

Disney and London based Secret-Cinema are working to create a unique movie based experience from some of Disney’s biggest franchises. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, UK-based Secret Cinema and Disney have signed a deal that results in transforming many Disney titles by combing the film with elements like art, live music, dance, and theater. 

Secret Cinema has already done these experiences for Strangers Things, Shawshank Redemption, Blade Runner, Moulin Rouge!, and Alien. Star was too done by them under a previous deal. 

The titles are yet to be announced, but one can assume movies like Star Wars, Walt Disney Animation Studios movies, and some from the Marvel Cinematic Universe will make it to the list. 

The company converts huge spaces into movie worlds where actors play out storylines and hero moments each night of the production.

Audiences participate by becoming part of the show and story, from the moment they buy a ticket to when they are assigned a character and are transported into the preshow narrative.

Filmgoers step into the world of the movie, becoming their character, and uncover secret storylines and participate as if they were inside the film itself.

Secret Cinema is a London based studio and it plans to begin work in New York and Los Angeles soon.
