Finding Nemo: the Musical to get an all-new revamp for 2022

This may be the best news all day! But have we been duped?

Yesterday, we learned from Cast Member performers of Finding Nemo: The Musical that it would not be returning, against Guests’ hopes. Here’s the second part of that story:

Finding Nemo: The Musical will not be returning to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, but a completely revamped version of the popular Broadway-style show will be unveiled next year, and we couldn’t be happier!

Per Disney Parks Blog several minutes ago, the new musical is still in the very early stages of development. But we do know that it will include new story material about the clownfish, his overprotective papa and the friendships that bloom among our underwater pals.

The new musical will include some of Guests’ most favorite songs from the original version of Finding Nemo: The Musical, such as “Big Blue World” and “Go with the Flow.”

Pixar’s Finding Nemo hit theaters in 2003 and was an instant hit with kids and kids at heart. The story was soon made into a musical at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and in 2016, Pixar’s newest underwater tale of a lost friend trying to find her way home–Finding Dory–was released.

Fans of Nemo can also find him and his pals at the attraction inside The Seas with Nemo and Friends pavilion at EPCOT and even meet some of his friends in the aquariums at Sea Base inside the pavilion as well.

We are excited about the new take on an old favorite, and we can’t wait to see what Disney World’s Live Entertainment Team comes up with for the remake of Nemo’s story that we usually catch at Theater in the Wild at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Are you excited about a revamp of Nemo’s musical? Let us know what you think!



About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
