Disney has today confirmed that “UP! A Great Bird Adventure,” featuring Russell and Dug from Disney•Pixar’s “UP” will be debuting at Disney's Animal Kingdom on Earth Day, April 22 2018.

In the new show, guests get 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 in Anandapur village. There will be “UP” close encounters each day with amazing winged creatures!

Along with today's confirmation of the opening date, the name also appears to have been trimmed down from the originally announced 'Adventurers Meet UP! A Great Bird Adventure' to ''UP! A Great Bird Adventure.'

'UP! A Great Bird Adventure'  replaces Flights of Wonder, which had its final performance on December 31 2017.
