Finding Nemo: The Big Blue… and Beyond! will open this summer at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and it’s time to take a deep dive into the creation of the freshly reimagined show.
Stepping inside the Theater in the Wild, we’ll catch up with the group of fish from Dr. P. Sherman’s office in “Finding Nemo,” who have made their way across the ocean to the Marine Life Institute.
The fish tell Nemo’s story in this fully updated, 25-minute show, incorporating live performers and puppets, along with many of the beloved songs and production numbers from the original “Finding Nemo: The Musical.”
In addition to a new script, the show will feature new scenic set pieces and a new LED video wall designed to visually extend the world created by the physical sets on stage.
The stage will be filled with eye-catching sets including a 32-foot-long sunken submarine and a fish tank volcano standing nearly 15 feet tall!
Working in close collaboration with Pixar Animation Studios, artists and designers at Disney Live Entertainment also developed a new aesthetic for “Finding Nemo: The Big Blue… and Beyond!” inspired by layered, cut paper sculptures.
The resulting look is fresh and unique to the show while staying true to the designs in the original film.
“Finding Nemo: The Big Blue… and Beyond!” is just one of the many additions coming to the Walt Disney World Resort as they continue to celebrate its 50th Anniversary.
I’m excited to share more details about the show!!!Follow us for more updates:
