Finding Nemo - The Musical

Finding Nemo – The Musical was a live puppet and musical stage show based on Disney/Pixar's 2003 film Finding Nemo, located at the Theater in the Wild in DinoLand U.S.A at Disney's Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The 40-minute show (performed 5–6 times daily) started holding previews on November 5, 2006, officially opening on January 24, 2007. The music, composed by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and her husband, Robert Lopez, the writers behind the scores of Avenue Q, The Book of Mormon, In Transit and Frozen, used direct lines from the film, bringing the film characters to life on stage. On March 15, 2020, the show had its final performance before Walt Disney World Resort closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak's impact on Florida. However, following Walt Disney World Resort's reopening, it was announced that a new reimagined version of the show entitled Finding Nemo: The Big Blue… and Beyond! will premiere in Summer 2022, as part of Walt Disney World Resort's 50th anniversary celebration.
