Walt Disney World has announced an all-new show coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Spring 2018 featuring Russell and Dug from Disney•Pixar’s “UP.”

Beginning just in time for the 20th anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom next year, this new experience will offer guests the chance to see Senior Wilderness Explorer Russell and his furry friend Dug as they discover species of birds from around the world in their newest adventure at the Caravan Theater in Anandapur village.

The show currently at the Caravan Theater, Flights of Wonder, will close December 31, 2017 to make room for this new show.

But it really sounds like the “UP” show will be similar to Flights of Wonder, just with the addition of the characters. No word if Guano Joe or Jane will be part of the new show, too.

What do you think of the new show news?
