VIDEO: Neil Patrick Harris Opens Candlelight Processional Narration With a Joke About Former Disney CEO Bob Chapek
Neil Patrick Harris is back to narrate the Candlelight Processional this year, and as a big fan of Disney Parks, he’s often a crowd favorite for his jokes and references. Tonight, he opened the narration with a joke about former Disney CEO Bob Chapek.
“Welcome to tonight’s performance of the Candlelight Processional at EPCOT. EPCOT, an acronym, and I’m pretty sure the C doesn’t stand for Chapek,” Harris quipped.
You can listen to the joke in the video clip below, captured by Twitter user @ropedroplife (Deanna Berry).
Candlelight Processional is a retelling of the Nativity story, narrated by a celebrity and featuring a Cast Member chorus. Performances take place on select evenings during the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays. While this is Neil Patrick Harris’ last performance of the year, you can see the narrator lineup in our full festival guide here.
