Disney Is Having “UP! A Great Bird Adventure” Rewritten Due to Poor Guest Response to New Animal Kingdom Show

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

UP! A Great Bird Adventure has been almost universally panned since it debuted back in April in Asia at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. Many a guest has cringed from the painful dialogue between live actors and costumed characters as the talented winged cast members performed their various acts.

Disney has noted this and is now having the show rewritten to be funnier and more entertaining. Reportedly, a comedian from outside of the company is being brought in to fix the show. It is unclear when a revamped version of the show might debut, but work has begun to correct the issues and as well produce a nighttime version (as it will start getting darker earlier in the day soon enough).

Disney has yet to make any statement on the changes.
