If it’s wrong to be going around the FTN offices singing ‘Let it Goooooooooooooooooooo!’ then we don’t want to be right…

Walt Disney has announced plans for a live show called Frozen On Ice which, according to The Hollywood Reporter, “will be the skating equivalent of a touring Broadway musical, requiring a cast of 39 performers and nine tractor-trailers to move from city to city. Feld Entertainment, which holds the license for Disney on Ice, said patrons could expect a blizzard created by 20 snow machines, a stage inspired by a six-sided snowflake and towering video projection panels that, among other things, would simulate the movie’s jagged North Mountains. The tour will start in Orlando, Florida.”

Disney chief executive Bob Iger said earlier this month that Frozen “is definitely up there in terms of our top, probably, five franchises, so you can expect us to take full advantage of that over the next five years, I would guess.”

While most Disney on Ice shows usually consists of pieces of numerous Disney movies, Disney say this time out it will be 98% Frozen as the movie lends itself perfectly to a show like this.

Rehearsals begin in July and tickets go on sale this Tuesday for the 2014/2015 season.

More and and when we get it, folks…

“Let it go! Let it gooooooooooooooooooooo!”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
