News: Host of Epcot’s Upcoming Awesome Planet Attraction Announced — and it’s a Family-iar Face

Epcot’s Awesome Planet, a film about our Mother Earth, opens on Friday, January 17, in the Land pavilion. And today during an Epcot International Festival of the Arts preview, Disney revealed the film’s host!

Awesome Planet in the Land

You know him as the lovable Phil Dunphy on ABC’s Modern Family: it’s Ty Burrell! That’s right: the patriarch of the Dunphy family and master realtor (on TV) will now be what Disney called the “planetary realtor” of Awesome Planet, selling our Earth as a living thing that changes and seeks balance.

This isn’t Burrell’s first Disney-fied work outside of Modern Family. He also provided the voice for Bailey in Finding Dory. We’re looking forward to viewing the film for the first time this week, and we’ll bring you all the details!
