New Show Featuring Russel

Disney has a new announcement for today’s “12 Days of Disney Parks Christmas” event. We now know an all-new show featuring Russell and Dug from Pixar’s “UP” is coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom this Spring 2018.

The new show coincides with the park’s 20th anniversary next year and will give guests the chance to see Senior Wilderness Explorer Russell and his furry friend Dug as they discover species of birds from around the world in their newest adventure at the Caravan Theater in Anandapur village. This will give new meaning to “UP” close encounters of the feathered kind!

This means that we will be saying goodbye to Flights of Wonder who currently has their shows at the Caravan Theater. The final show for Flights of Wonder will be on December 31, 2017.

Will you be sad to see Flights of Wonder go?
