Following its Broadway success, the stage-adaptation of Frozen is finally coming to the West End next year.
Producers confirmed Frozen: The Musical will reopen Drury Lane Theatre, London, in Autumn 2020 following the theatre's refurbishment, with the production transforming it into an icy wonderland fit for Elsa and Anna.
The stage version is based on the beloved Disney movie - which is soon getting a sequel - and is entertainment company's most successful animated flick ever, raking in £1.25bn at the box office.
It follows almost the same storyline as Frozen but includes a handful of extra songs written just for the musical.
Those appearing in the Broadway show will not follow the all-singing, all-dancing production to London as a whole new British cast will be chosen for the West End version to take on the roles of Elsa, Anna and co.
Meanwhile, Olaf the snowman and Sven the reindeer will be portrayed and brought to life through the use of puppets.
The Broadway original was nominated for a Tony award, and is also written by the same team behind the movie.
The website says: "Escape into the wonder-filled world of Arendelle to experience stories of love, hope and self-discovery, delivered with groundbreaking set design and special effects, exquisite costumes and sensational stagecraft from the producers of The Lion King and Aladdin.
"The uplifting story of love and sisterhood is beautifully retold for the stage in this spectacular new musical, bringing together the two sisters who melted hearts across the world to cast a whole new spell over the West End. It's moving, it's breathtaking; it's pure joy."
