Tonight @Disneylandberry on twitter announced that Animagique will close its curtain for the final time in 2015. Although not officially confirmed, they do seem to be quite in the know and previous rumours they have announced have shown fruitful signs of truth!

With Jedi training academy rumoured to come to Videopolis in the near future, what would you like to see fill the massive space currently occupied by Animagique?

With its proximity to the flying carpets and lack of production style theatre shows in the parks, I would love to see Aladdin the Musical come to Paris.

Would love to hear your ideas or suggestions for the Animagique theatre!

Martin

My guess would be something Pixar related or it will get knocked down for something else Pixar. Toon Studios is really heavily focused on Pixar these days and I think it would be better to rename it Pixar Place or something along those lines.

Exciting to see that something is happening though and to be honest I've never been a huge fan of Animagique. What I definitely don't want though is Animagique to close and nothing to replace it, just keeping the theatre to sit empty for years (shudders).

If it's Aladdin they'd have to knock down the building too, as much as I like that idea. That stage won't work out at all.

I'm expecting something Pixar related too. Wasn't there a Toy Story musical on one of the cruise ships?

Ok, first of all I love Animagique and will be sad to see it go... especially since I think the show is really unique... the storyline is similar to other things... but the whole thing together makes it special; however, it has been there a long time and as long as it is replaced with something of similar caliber I can accept this change.

One thing that was long rumored for this spot was Philharmagic; however, like everyone else I would expect something Pixar... if they take out Animagique and move the flying carpets (spinners are pretty easy to relocate) then that whole area could be completely Pixar and finally have a cohesive theme.

Another rumour being banded about is Mickey's Magical Map like at Disneyland California. Wasn't there some suggestions that Phillipe Gas had a private viewing of this show with some other DLP executives when it first opened. It would certainly make a lot of sense and wouldn't require much work to the stage and theatre.
Hopefully they add a few more characters and change the story line slightly if they do pursue that option.

I fully expect it to be Pixar (or maybe a frozen show)

It'll be sad to see it go, if Philarmagic goes in, does that mean we have no stage shows in the whole resort?

Good.

I'd personally go for Frozen just to cash in, although the Pixar idea is good, I'd have an Incredibles show, or maybe a Pixar version of it, so similar storyline, just having Bugs Life, Incredibles, Up and Nemo?

Or I have been working on a project similar to Animagique if Disney want it :p

Hmmmm....


The ever cryptic insidedlparis said they knew of no planned permanent closure of Animagique. Also on this day there was confirmation that 10 attractions will be upgraded/renewed before the 25th Anniversary including Phantom Manor and Star Tours to Star Tours 2. Maybe Animagique is getting an update and it may not close after all?

All speculation for now, but will be interesting to see how things develop!
