Walt Disney World is right in the middle of its Halloween and Food & Wine celebrations but there are more exciting things also on the horizon. One annual tradition that many look forward to is Epcot’s Candlelight Processional. Each year, the story of Christmas is told by a celebrity narrator with the help of a live orchestra and choir. While several narrators have been announced, more were revealed today.
The first new narrator is film and television actress, director and wildlife conservationist Isabella Rossellini. She will be the Candlelight storyteller Dec. 8-10. The second is actress, author, activist and Oscar winner Marlee Matlin. She will narrate Dec. 27-28.
This duo of narrators joins a stellar collection of narrators for this year’s Candlelight Procession. This year’s series of Candlelight Procession performances is kicked off by Ming-Na Wen, the voice of the animated Disney heroine Mulan, on November 29-December 1. They take place nightly at the America Gardens Theatre from November 29 through December 30th as part of the Epcot International Festival of the Holidayspresented by AdventHealth.
