Disney World to debut new Finding Nemo show from Avenue Q composer

Finding Nemo - The Musical will be a live stage adaptation of the Academy Award-winning Pixar Animation Studios movie. The show will feature original songs by the Tony Award-winning composer of "Avenue Q," Robert Lopez. (I think it's safe to assume that we'll be hearing much cleaner lyrics in this show.)
This isn't, of course, the first time that Disney's turned to the composer of a rather ribald musical show to create a family-friendly production. Memory serves that Disney did pretty well there with "Little Shop of Horrors" composers Howard Ashman and Alan Menken....
