Turtle Talk with Crush

Turtle Talk with Crush is inspired by the Walt Disney Pictures presentation of a Pixar Animation Studios film "Finding Nemo."

The live, real-time computer-animated show gives Guests the chance to engage in live, unrehearsed conversations with the animated sea turtle. From his digital world under the sea, Crush chats, plays, jokes and reacts to Guests in a unique, personalized way. The 152-year-old turtle recognizes guests and asks them questions about themselves and the human world.

Imagine Crush stopping in mid-stream, noticing someone in the audience, and saying in real-time, "Hey you -- dude in the righteous Hawaiian shirt -- what's that on your head?" Walt Disney Imagineers have created precisely this kind of incredible interaction in the new attraction.  

The magic is created with an innovative combination of digital projection and sophisticated, voice-activated computer animation.

Tips & Fun Facts

The initial version of the attraction opened in 2004 as part of “The Living Seas Pavilion” at Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and has been immensely popular with park Guests.
The image of Crush is rendered by voice-activated 3-D animation, projected at 30-frames-per-second so that the turtle's mouth moves in synchronization with the words of a hidden actor portraying the character.
