Creative Portfolio Executive of Walt Disney Imagineering recently took to Instagram to share the latest details of this upcoming EPCOT attraction. Riddley shared the above photo that allows Guests to preview the graphic style and content of the attraction.

Along with the latest image update for Journey of Water, Riddley writes:

This image is a preview of the graphic style that will be used throughout the attraction, inspired by the design and visual language of the Walt Disney Animation Studios film “Moana.” Our team created many original pieces that focus on the dynamic movement of water as it travels around the experience. Graphics like these will guide guests through the cycle of water in fun and engaging ways to tell our story of the vital link we share with water across our planet, and inspire the important role we all share in preserving this life-giving and life-sustaining precious resource.
