Three costumed characters stand on a stage in front of a large screen displaying the text "July 17." Audience members capture the moment with their phones.

Country Bear Musical Jamboree will debut on July 17, 2024.

A theatrical performance featuring the Country Bears dressed in colorful costumes, singing and playing instruments on a stage decorated with curtains and lights.

The new show replaces the original Country Bear Jamboree at Magic Kingdom with the same bears performing new spins on Disney songs. The Country Bear Musical Jamboree was announced at Destination D23 in 2023 and the Country Bear Jamboree closed in January 2024.

The Country Bear Musical Jamboree setlist includes “A Whole New World” from “Aladdin,” “Try Everything” from “Zootopia,” and “Bear Necessities” from “The Jungle Book.” The second episode of “We Call It Imagineering” included footage of Emily Ann Roberts recording “Try Everything” as the voice of Trixie. Roberts performed the song live at Monday’s media event:

Allison Russell and Christopher Scott Thile recorded “A Whole New World.”

The old bears will wear new costumes as we saw with a behind-the-scenes look at the Sun Bonnets. Liver Lips McGrowl is the only bear getting a name change, as “Liver Lips” is a racial slur. He will now be known as Romeo McGrowl.
