Disney+ has announced the return of one show and three other new “non-fiction” series coming to the platform in the future, at the Realscreen Summit in New Orleans.
There were four series discussed in total. They are called: The Quest, The Maze, Meet the Chimps, and the final one has yet to receive a name. but we know it will follow Pixar’s SparkShorts program which offers some Pixar employees the chance at making an animated short film.
Let’s look at the three named shows:
This show will be returning. It’s a reality, competition show that will be filmed at a castle near Vienna, Austria.
Teen contestants will enter the fantasy world of Everealm. There they “will encounter mystical and magical beings that rival their favorite books, games, and movies as they are immersed in a 360-degree world through seamless technology, creature design, practical effects, and scripted characters who interact with them.”
The three new shows:
This one will also be a competition show where five teams of 2 (one adult and one teen relative) must “solve riddles and decipher clues that will guide them through European cities and fairytale villages. In each episode, characters will reveal information to participants as they move closer to their final destination — but only one team will solve the Maze.”
Meet the Chimps
In this show from National Geographic viewers will get to look “..into the secret life of Chimp Haven, a 200-acre refuge tucked in the heart of Louisiana, home to more than 300 chimpanzees. The six-part series will follow the ups and downs of a group of chimps who are given a second chance at life by the Chimp Haven staff.”
Then the third one is the unnamed Pixar show I mentioned above.
Keep watching for these shows to come to Disney+
As an aside, I think it’s good that they are trying to do more content for teens. With escape rooms and LARPing becoming increasingly popular, these shows could fare well with that demographic. I know my son would watch them.
