More details on the new 'UP' close encounters show coming to Disney's Animal Kingdom

Dec 29, 2017 in "Flights of Wonder"

A recent audition notice posted by Disney Parks Live Entertainment has offered a few more details on the upcoming replacement for Flights of Wonder at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

The casting call is for Anika, a young woman who lives in the Anandapur Indian village and spends her time as a caretaker of birds in the Caravan aviary. She is the descendent of a Maharani, a free-spirit, and the storyteller in her proud family. Her movement and language are colorful and expressive. She is personable, playful, and at home in nature.

Beginning just in time for the 20th anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom next year, the 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. There will be “UP” close encounters each day with amazing winged creatures.

Flights of Wonder has its final performance on December 31 2017.
