Now, it seems that Disney is preparing to do construction work on the Theater In the Wild, where Finding Nemo: The Musical is housed.

Although the construction permit doesn’t provide details about what is being done — it is for “General Construction” — it is likely that the work is related to the musical’s reimagining. Ocala, Florida-based builder Curington Contracting is listed as the contractor on the permit.

Finding Nemo: The Musical was a musical show based on Disney·Pixar’s 2003 animated film, Finding Nemo, located at the Theater in the Wild in DinoLand U.S.A. at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

On March 12, 2020, the show had its final performance before Walt Disney World Resort closed temporarily due to the COVID-19 outbreak’s impact on Florida. However, following Walt Disney World Resort’s reopening, it was announced that an updated version of the live show would return in 2022.
