Feld Entertainment has announced that their 34th annual Disney On Ice show will be based on Frozen, the Academy Award-winning, highest-grossing animated film of all time.
The production will retell the story of Frozen live for the first time, capturing the dynamic between two royal sisters, Anna and Elsa. Anna, a girl with an extraordinary heart, embarks on an epic journey to find her sister, the magical Elsa, who is determined to remain secluded as she finally feels free to test the limits of her powers. Rugged mountain man Kristoff, his loyal reindeer Sven, the lovable and hilarious snowman Olaf and the mystical trolls help Anna along the way in this story about love conquering fear. The production will feature songs from the movie, including the Academy Award-winning "Let it Go," "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" and "Fixer Upper."
"In our more than 30 years of producing Disney On Ice shows, Feld Entertainment has been waiting for a film like this," says producer Nicole Feld. "While it might seem obvious that Frozen is well suited for the ice, this Disney On Ice production will touch audiences emotionally through innovative show elements and world-class skating."
Frozen directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee add, "Seeing audiences around the world embrace Frozen has been the experience of a lifetime. And to now have the chance to consult with the talented team at Feld Entertainment and watch their creation come to life on ice, is thrilling."
In Disney On Ice presents Frozen, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse take the audience through the magical story based in Arendelle, with special appearances by beloved Disney princesses and favorite characters from Disney∙Pixar's Toy Story and Finding Nemo and Disney's The Lion King, who come together to prove that true love is the greatest power of all. Director Patty Vincent says, "Our goal is to showcase these heartwarming characters in a way that allows the audience to cheer and sing along throughout this emotional journey."
The production's set design will rise up from the ice into the air in order to draw the audience closer to the characters. Elsa’s magic will be portrayed with special effects, while her emotions are conveyed through ice-skating.
Disney On Ice presents Frozen will begin touring September 2014.
