Back in September, it was announced that a reimagined version of Finding Nemo: The Musical would be heading to Disney’s Animal Kingdom next year. Today at Destination D23, more information on this updated show was unveiled.

What’s Happening:

  • Set in the timeline of Finding Dory, the updated show will be called Finding Nemo: The Big Blue… and Beyond!
  • When you take a seat in the theater, you’ll find yourself at the Marine Life Institute. As the show begins, we catch up with the fish from Dr. P. Sherman’s office in Finding Nemo, who have made their way across the ocean to California. They tell the story of Nemo and how they all got there, incorporating many of the beloved songs and production numbers from the original show.
  • The team is hard at work getting Finding Nemo: The Big Blue… and Beyond! ready to open in 2022.
  • Finding Nemo: The Musical, which originally debuted in 2007, has been dark since Disney’s Animal Kingdom reopened from the pandemic related closure in July 2020.

Stay tuned to Laughing Place as there’s more announcements and excitement to come from Destination D23 this weekend!
