This is Backlot, where the imagination of the talented people behind the camera explodes onto the scene in an epic schedule of thrilling set pieces!


Follow the Rue Georges Méliès towards the pounding beats of rock music and epic action movie soundtracks at the Piazza Sergio Leone and you'll pass the incredible Armadillo prop, a fascinating introduction to the spectacular special effects of its blockbuster origins, which roar through Studio 7 at Armageddon - Les Effets Speciaux.

If you'd prefer to take a backseat on the action, head for Moteurs... Action! Stunt Show Spectacular and prepare to be blown away by a dazzling showcase of the most fearless car and motorbike stunts ever seen, all choreographed exclusively for the production by famed James Bond stunt designer Rémy Julienne. At Rock 'n' Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith, the red carpet has been rolled out for the legendary rock band, who are inviting their fans to test-drive an electrifying new way to experience their sounds, using a breathtaking launch, dazzling light-show and sensational music.

Backlot is also the place where the cameras start rolling for Disney Cinema Parade and the sounds of High School Musical go "On Tour" with an energetic, lightning-paced street musical.

From exhilarating music to jaw-dropping near-misses, Backlot guarantees an explosive mix of action, fun and pure cinematic emotion...
