From October 5th to 12th, Disney+ is hosting a Drive-In Festival at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

The screening series will bring guests together to enjoy Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic content under the stars in a safe setting.

The week will kick off with the world premiere of The Right Stuff before it starts streaming October 9th on Disney+. After six nights of fan-favourite screenings open to the public, the festival will wrap with the premiere of the Disney+ Original Movie Clouds, ahead of its October 16th debut on the service.

The festival will be filled with movie nights celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Walt Disney Animation Studios film Tangled and the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back alongside the Los Angeles return of The Sound Of Music Sing-A-Long for the 55th anniversary of the Rodgers & Hammerstein classic film. In honour of Hispanic Heritage Month, the festival will feature the Pixar Animation Studio film Coco on October 7th while Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel will screen on October 11th in celebration of International Day of the Girl. On October 9th, guests can join Disney+ for a Halloween-themed night featuring Hocus Pocus and more spooky surprises in store.

Each night will get started with a classic animated short, classic episodes of The Simpsons, or sneak peek trailers from Disney+ Originals on the big screen.

Capacity is limited and reservations will be required to attend. Disney+ adds that its Drive-In Festival will follow Covid-19 safety guidelines to protect all guests and staff.
