Elsa's love of cold climates will serve her well when the hit animated movie "Frozen" becomes a live touring show for Disney on Ice.

Feld Entertainment, which produces live touring family spectaculars, including shows under the Disney on Ice banner, announced this week that the touring version of "Frozen" is scheduled to launch in September in Orlando, Fla., at the Amway Center.

"Frozen" will mark the company's 34th Disney on Ice show. The production will feature ice-skating versions of the characters from the animated movie, as well as appearances by Mickey and Minnie Mouse and other popular Disney characters.

The production will also include sing-along performances of the Oscar-winning song "Let It Go," plus "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" and "Fixer Upper."


Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, who directed the movie, said in a statement that they would be consulting with the creators of the ice-skating version.

"Frozen," which won this year's Oscar for animated feature, has grossed more than $1.2 billion worldwide, making it one of Disney's most successful animated movies. The soundtrack has been a top-selling album, with songs written by Ropert Lopez, a Broadway veteran, and his wife, Kristen Anderson-Lopez.

After opening in Orlando, the "Frozen" tour will travel to cities including Tampa, Fla.; Atlanta; Baltimore; Newark, N.J.; and Minneapolis. The show will have several performances in New York at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn in November. 

No dates for Southern California stops have been announced so far.
