When my twin boys were little, “Nemo” was one of their first words. They loved the movie, and seeing it come to life at Disney’s Animal Kingdom would always put grins on their faces and a tear in my eye. “Finding Nemo — The Musical” has been delighting our guests since 2007, and I’m excited to tell you a reimagined show, based on the same beloved characters, will debut in 2022. 

“Finding Nemo — The Musical”

Although our Disney Live Entertainment team is still in the early stages of development for the show, the musical retelling of this underwater tale of family, friendship and kindness will feature new story material, as well as fan favorite songs such as “In the Big Blue World” and “Go with the Flow.”

Stay tuned to Disney Parks Blog for updates on this new show as we get closer to its debut next year.


  • The show that was there before was amazing. But”re-imagining” doesn’t mean things will be not as good. It’s hard to imagine an improvement to such an amazing show, but Disney does some amazing things, so who knows?

  • They fired the entire cast and they will all have to re-audition if they want their jobs back.

  • All my wife has waited for was the announcement of when this would return. Yesterday, I had to share the sad news that they were removing it permanently. I honestly worried that she may cancel our next trip. Today…the sun is shining!!! I’m so happy about this announcement. It is such an amazing musical with excellent unique songs. This was a no brainer!!!

  • I was so bummed yesterday when their was a report this was all done. What a difference a day makes. WOOOOHOOOO
