Here is what Disney Parks Blog had to say:

And the new Cirque du Soleil show “Drawn to Life,” coming to Disney Springs, will be a collaboration between Cirque du Soleil, Walt Disney Animation Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering.

While the show was originally set to debut in April 2020, it was delayed due to the ongoing pandemic. As we previously reported 95% of the entire company for “Drawn to Life” was laid off as a result of the pandemic.

Cirque du Soleil did have to declare bankruptcy, however, it appears that the show “Drawn to Life” will be moving forward at its home in Disney Springs this year.
