Disney Filming in Lakeland: Day 2

Filming continues in Lakeland, Florida, for the Disney movie The One and Only Ivan. We visited the local sets where filming is taking place to catch a glimpse of the Disney Magic.

The Movie:
“Based on the true story of a uniquely talented gorilla and the other animals who share a communal habitat at a suburban shopping mall, The One and Only Ivan is an unforgettable tale about the beauty of friendship, the power of visualization, and the significance of the place we call home. Katherine Applegate’s book, a #1 New York Times’ bestseller, has won numerous awards, including the Newberry Medal for the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children in 2013.”

Lakeland filming locations include the iconic South Gate Shopping Center, Dobbins Park, Silver Moon Drive-In, and Palm Drive.
