The Academy Award-winning tale will be told live for the first time in this production, 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. Audiences will get to sing along songs like "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."
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."
To create a completely immersive experience for the audience, the set design will encompass the space from the ice surface up through the air, drawing everyone into the story and closer to the characters. Families will feel that they are trekking up to the North Mountains with Anna, Kristoff and Sven, and they will tangibly experience the storm inside Elsa. Elsa's magic will be enhanced by state-of-the art special effects while her emotions will be conveyed through powerful skating.
