Back in 2019, Disney announced an original docuseries coming to Disney+ called Behind The Attraction. Now, almost two years later, the series is finally set to debut on July 16, 2021.
Disney Plus News announced on Twitter today that this “first of its kind” series will finally debut next month. Behind The Attraction will take viewers into the history of how popular Disney attractions and destinations were created, the many changes over the years, and how fans’ obsessions continue to grow.
Disney+ has ordered 10 one-hour episodes of this in-depth series which features interviews with people behind the scenes, including Disney Imagineers and fans as well.
Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia, Brian Gewirtz, and Kevin Hill from Seven Bucks Productions will share executive producer credits with Brian Volk-Weiss, Robin Henry, and Cisco Henson from The Nacelle Company. Volk-Weiss will also direct the series.
The Nacelle Company previously found success with the Netflix docuseries “The Toys That Made Us,” exploring the history of popular toys.
“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,” said Johnson, executive producer and co-founder of Seven Bucks Productions.
