We have such sad news to report. It seems the Original Finding Nemo the Musical will not be returning to Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
The news was shared by Cast Members in the stage show on how the original show will not be returning.
Finding Nemo the musical never returned to to the Animal Kingdom when the theme parks reopened last year. Nemo replaced Tarzan Rocks back in 2006 and has been a fan favorite ever since.
Extraordinary live musical performances, delightful puppets, vibrant sets and wondrous underwater special effects immerse you in Nemo’s fin-tastic world. Join the overprotective clownfish Marlin and his forgetful friend Dory as they search for his son, Nemo.
The multiple Academy Award®-winning songwriting team behind Frozen and Coco, Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, created 14 original songs just for this show—the first time a non-musical Disney animated feature has been transformed into an original musical production.
Take your fins and family and dive right into this “big blue world!”
Instead, a New Updated Finding Nemo Musical Coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park in 2022.
Here are the details released today:
A reimagined show, based on the same beloved characters, will debut in 2022.
Although our Disney Live Entertainment team is still in the early stages of development for the show, the musical retelling of this underwater tale of family, friendship and kindness will feature new story material, as well as fan-favorite songs such as “In the Big Blue World” and “Go with the Flow.”
Our thoughts and prayers go out to those cast members who will not be returning to work. Hopefully, you will be called back for the updated Finding Nemo Musical.
