Your eyes are not deceiving you. For the first time (*cue Frozen music*) Disney’s Moana will board her boat and sail across the sea for the new ice skating extravaganza here in South Africa.
So grab your Mickey Mouse ears and get ready as Disney On Ice celebrates Mickey and Friends skates into South Africa for the first time in 2020.
As Mickey looks back on unforgettable Disney moments, families will be taken on a high-seas adventure with Moana for the first time in South Africa as she displays courage to save her island, journey to the wintry world of Arendelle as royal sisters Anna and Elsa discover true love is the most powerful magic of all, and experience the mysterious magic of Fantasia as a Sorcerer’s Apprentice makes brooms come to life. The Emotions – Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust– from Disney and Pixar’s Inside Out make their Disney On Ice debut as the hosts of the show relive classic and contemporary Disney stories in an emotional rollercoaster with Mickey and the gang. Fans will find themselves under the sea with their favourite, forgetful blue tang, as Dory embarks on a life-changing journey to find her family. Audiences will also join the Disney Princesses as they use perseverance, determination and hard work to inspire Mickey and children around the world to celebrate their favourite Disney memories. As the show builds to the finale, fans will have the opportunity to vote and pick outfits for Mickey and Minnie to wear during the final celebration.
“We are delighted to announce that Moana and Inside Out are in Disney On Ice for the first time in South Africa and we welcome Toy Story back,” says Tony Feldman from Showtime Management.
Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy join Mickey Mouse in a high-energy performance that is a modern take on the film that started it all, Steamboat Willie. With some help from the audience, Mickey and pals venture through the various Disney worlds sharing meaningful moments from treasured tales spanning generations to determine what their favourite memory of all time is.
“In this new Disney On Ice production, we pay tribute to Walt Disney and the True Original icon, Mickey Mouse,” said Executive Vice President of Feld Entertainment and Producer Nicole Feld. “Each section of the show was carefully selected to immerse families in an array of beloved stories that they have grown to know and love. With live hosts and interactive segments, we hope our fans have an amazing experience that leaves them with memories that last a lifetime.”
