    Just saw this over at Screamscape. It's been announced that a Finding Nemo/Finding Dory ride will open in 2017.

    Based on the concept art, it looks to be a retheme of the current Stormriders attraction rather than a new ride using the space:

    The quoted figure seems to be extremely high for a retheme of an existing attraction though. 5 billion yen is around $40million or £27million.

    Stormrider always looked one of the least appetising rides at the park. My first reaction was about pulling off Finding Nemo/Dory/whatever in Port Discovery. I doubt it would be as tasteful as Turtle Talk, but a "special shrinking submarine" could fit in Port Discovery as a sort of sea life research base instead of the weather station. Although I don't want an IP takeover, I think it's a wise move.

    Goes to show even Disney Sea isn't immune to IP's taking over original ideas.

    Urgh, Stormrider was actually awesome. I understand their lack of space though and the need to renew things. I hope it's more than a retheme and as Gavin rightly points out, that's a lot of money for just a retheme. Then again, getting Pixar to do new animation will be costly and probably why Ratatouille in Paris was so expensive.
