On Monday, the the newly reimagined show “Finding Nemo The Big Blue.. and Beyond,” will officially open at Disney’s Animal Kingdom after a special preview today.
Based on Disney and Pixar’s film Finding Nemo, this exciting stage show is a reimagined retelling of “Finding Nemo: The Musical,” which debuted at the park in 2007 and ran for more than 13 years.
The show is filled with puppets, singers and other performers—set in the underwater world of the movie.
“We have some new storytelling elements. New scenic, wonderful lighting and the whole show is so vibrant,” said show director James Silson with Disney Live Entertainment. “We have also included a giant LED screen that also serves as a backdrop for our show. Let me tell you, it’s been absolutely magical working with the team, coming up with creative ways of putting content that really enhances our cast into the story of Finding Nemo.”
“The show is a little shorter. It actually runs 25 minutes. We think that’s the perfect length to tell this story and share with audiences, with young families and young children, so that’s great,” Silson said. “It allows guests to still go out in the park and experience the wonderful things at Animal Kingdom.”
