THE action-packed Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Fantasy skates in to Echo Arena Liverpool from April 2-6.
The Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Fantasy show whisks audiences on a captivating adventure to four magical locations, including the auto-racing terrain of Cars and a visit to Andy’s bedroom for some fun with the stars of Toy Story 3.
The production delights audiences with a journey under the sea to Ariel’s world from The Little Mermaid and then into the mystical land of Pixie Hollow for a presentation of Tinker Bell.
Producer Nicole Feld said: “To be the first to introduce the Tinker Bell story live on ice and to be entrusted with the beloved Toy Story characters is incredible, and we are thrilled to bring these heartwarming tales to families across the UK.”
The on-ice excitement begins when an adventurous Mickey Mouse embarks on a journey with Minnie Mouse to uncover each world of fantasy, but the plan goes awry when their cherry red roadster unexpectedly breaks down. Although Donald Duck and Goofy try, it takes the assistance of the coolest cars on the ice to get the pistons firing again. Direct from Radiator Springs, Mater, Lightning McQueen and Sally speed into action, zipping and zooming around the frozen highway in an effort to re-energise the roadster.
The life-sized Cars characters were developed by the innovative minds of the prop team with each car taking 2,000 man hours to build and is outfitted with custom animatronics including blinking eyes and hydraulic lifts that bounce to the beat of the music. Mater and McQueen even come complete with moving mouths, enabling their dynamic personalities to shine through each time they speak.
As Mickey and Minnie’s “road trip” continues, production designer Jeremy Railton’s whimsical scenery transforms the arena into an environment that captures the essence of each unique world to follow.
The second act of Worlds of Fantasy brings together all the fun, humour and warmth of the beloved Disney/Pixar film Toy Story 3. Woody, Jessie, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the familiar gang hit the ice for the ultimate Toy Story experience.
Worlds of Fantasy offers the perfect combination of elements for fans of Disney On Ice, with producer Ken Feld adding: “From the contemporary feel of Cars and Toy Story 3 to the timeless quality of The Little Mermaid and Tinker Bell, audiences will see four completely different Disney worlds brought to life.”
