New Show Replacing ‘Finding Nemo: The Musical’ at Disney’s Animal Kingdom To Be Announced Tomorrow at Destination D23

As we reported earlier this year, Finding Nemo: The Musical will no longer be performed at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Instead, a new musical based on “Finding Nemo” will debut next year at the Theater in the Wild, with more information to be revealed tomorrow during Destination D23.

The Disney Parks Blog announced that the new show was under development, but tomorrow’s “Connections: A Look at the Future of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products” panel at Destination D23 is expected to reveal more details.

We will bring live coverage from Destination D23, so stay tuned to WDWNT for more updates.

They probably want to do it without actors so Bob Cheapskate can save money, or they are shortening the show (45 minutes is too long).

I don’t believe they ever said they were “replacing” the show. If I recall correctly, they were “modifying” the staging of the show in some capacity. You have a very bad habit of jumping the gun when it comes to your articles. This is why your “Chapek not attending Destination D for fear of being booed” article got a lot flack.
