Disney Rivers of Light We Are One Concept Art

Happy Earth Day everyone. Today in celebration of the holiday Disney made a surprise announcement of a new replacement for Rivers of Light. It appears they will take an approach similar to IllumiNations at Epcot where they will keep the same Rivers of Light theme while still changing the show. IllumiNations had been multiple different shows before its current Reflections of Earth version and now Rivers of Light will do the same thing with the new show Rivers of Light We Are One.

The new show will feature the original soundtrack along with Disney music. What songs or films will be featured was not specified but I believe it is a safe bet animal based films like the Jungle Book will be included and The Lion King is seen above in the concept art

The new show will open Memorial Day weekend only about a month away.

The original show was long expected to be replaced ever since the live actors were removed, but not this soon. If you like the original version and will be unable to see it one last time be sure to watch it below.

What do you think? Will you miss Rivers of Light? Is this the right replacement? Let us know in the comments!
