ORLANDO, Fla. — Epcot is adding an exhibit about jazz, featuring a character from Disney-Pixar’s “Soul” film, inside the American Adventure attraction next month.
“The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure” includes Joe Gardner, the lead character of “Soul,” voiced in the film by Jamie Foxx.
“Jazz is the story of America. It unites people from every walk of life. It’s a living, breathing art form that’s always evolving and always changing,” Carmen Smith, creative executive vice president for creative development and inclusive strategies at Walt Disney Imagineering, said in a video posted Tuesday on the official Disney Parks Blog.
The exhibit will be a “musical tour across America,” Smith said, including New Orleans, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and San Juan, Puerto Rico. Multiple jazz museums are participating in the project, she said.
Neither an exact opening date nor the length of the exhibit’s stay at Epcot were announced. The attraction has had a series of exhibits off the main hallway of the attraction’s ground floor.
“Soul,” released late last year, is streaming on Disney+.
