"Finding Nemo" to Become Stage Musical
The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Pixar’s Finding Nemo will be the next Disney film to be turned into a stage musical (registration required). The new stage show will be written by Robert Lopez (Avenue Q) and his wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez (Along the Way) and is scheduled to debut at Walt Disney World in late 2006. Peter Brosius is scheduled to direct. While several animated Disney films have been converted into successful musicals, Finding Nemo will be the first one which did not originally include musical numbers.
