Guests at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will get to experience an all-new “Up”-themed bird show in 2018.

As part of the “12 Days of Disney Parks Christmas,” the Disney Parks Blog announced this morning that an all-new bird show is coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom in 2018 to replace Flights of Wonder, and will feature Dug and Russell from Disney/Pixar’s “Up.”

Just in time for the park’s 20th anniversary, this new show will give guests the chance to see Senior Wilderness Explorer Russell and his canine companion Dug discover bird species from around the world in the Caravan Theater in Anandapur Village.

As part of the preparations for this new show, Flights of Wonder will hold its final performance in Animal Kingdom on Dec. 31, 2017. Guests will have until the end of the month to see the current bird show for the last time in the Caravan Theater. The new show is expected to open in spring 2018.
