The reimagined ‘Finding Nemo’ show is returning to Disney World.

Some old favorites will return for fans of the original program.

This summer, Disney World will reintroduce a modified version of its iconic Finding Nemo musical performance, marking yet another significant milestone in the epidemic recovery.

“Finding Nemo: The Big Blue… and Beyond!” opens this summer, according to Disney, however the theme park business did not provide a specific date.

It’s a reimagined and updated version of “Finding Nemo — The Musical,” which initially wowed audiences in 2007. “Finding Nemo — The Musical” was a lavish 40-minute production at Disney World that mixed human actors with puppets and intricate underwater settings. The theme park show, adapted on the famous film, ran for a long time until the epidemic struck in March 2020, shutting the parks. The reopening of Disney World has been delayed, and certain live entertainment performances are among the latest to return to the theme parks.

It’s unknown how many Equity actors will be invited back, but the return of the program is excellent news for the Actors’ Equity Association, according to a representative on Monday.

In a statement, Russell Lehrer, Equity’s associate Eastern regional director, said “Finding Nemo is a beloved destination at Animal Kingdom, a high-energy show where the Equity performers get to share their love for these characters with guests. The new version allows everyone to refresh that vision, and welcome back performers and guests to rediscover the joy with old friends,”

According to data provided on the Disney parks blog, the show will appear different when it returns this summer.

The plot will pick up “with the group of fish from Dr. P. Sherman’s office in ‘Finding Nemo,’ who have made their journey across the ocean to the Marine Life Institute,” according to the Disney parks blog.

On stage, audiences will see new set elements. “We’re not talking about modest set pieces here,” Disney noted on the site, “but rather a 32-foot-long sunken submarine and a fish tank volcano about 15 feet tall.”

Another significant aesthetic modification will be the replacement of an LED video wall, which Disney describes as “designed to visually extend the world created by the physical sets on stage.”

Many of the songs and production pieces from “Finding Nemo — The Musical” will be incorporated into the revamped show, according to Disney. Disney also intends to continue utilizing live performers and puppets, as it has in the past.

The musical play based on Finding Nemo isn’t the only fan-favorite returning this summer following the epidemic. The Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue returned to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground on June 23.
