BREAKING: New “Finding Nemo” Musical Coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom in 2022

Disney has announced that a new, updated Finding Nemo: The Musical show is coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom in 2022.

The previous show has permanently closed and will be replaced by the new version next year. The original cast was notified their show was discontinued, so this will likely be a fresh casting. It will be a completely new show, as many of the props, puppets, and stage dressings were destroyed or are being used for parts for the new staging.

More information is upcoming, but the show will feature “new story material” and “fan-favorite songs such as ‘In the Big Blue World’ and ‘Go with the Flow.'” The Disney Live Entertainment team is still developing the new musical. No opening date has been announced.

Awesome! I believe they weren’t comfortable with the setup of the old show, mostly due to the isle use, not to mention the large cast in close proximity. I would imagine, just like Beauty and the Beast, this will be a more covid (and let’s not kid ourselves, budget, on Disney’s end) friendly show. I would guess that this will come online just in time to help relieve Animal Kingdom for Spring Break, while Everest is closed, we’ll see. Here’s hoping, DAK will need any help that it can get without Everest. Marketing a “new” show will help too. Wish… Read more »

Well I wrote it was sad that the old show was closing and am still concerned “new” means cheaper and less. I loved the old show, thought it was the best entertainment I saw at Disney besides the night time events. We will see if its “better”, though I would bet not. Still don’t plan to continue to support Disney after our “unrefunded” December trip.
