Disney recently confirmed that the RIVERS OF LIGHT show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be debuting officially on April 22.

The show, set on Discovery River in the Asia section of the park, will depict an ancient lantern festival guided by two storytellers who call forth four animal Spirit Guides: an Asian Tiger, Tropical Turtle, African Elephant and Great Horned Owl. These Spirit Guides return at different points during the show to lead the audience through their journey through the Rivers of Light.

The spectacle will include illuminated lanterns, water screens, moving fountains, light projections and other special effect elements.

Imagineer Joe Rhode also shared a few details on the upcoming RIVERS OF LIGHT show.
