From Cartoon Brew: “Check out this impressive preview of one of the “cast members” from the upcoming $20 million-plus How to Train Your Dragon arena show that opens next March in Melbourne and Sydney. After striking out with the Shrek musical (which is performing better in London than New York), DreamWorks appears to be on the right track with its second stage effort. They’ve outsourced the show’s creative direction to the Sydney, Australia firm Creature Technology Company, the animatronics arm of Global Creatures, which previously created a successful arena show based on the BBC series ‘Walking with Dinosaurs.'”
Dragons in the theater? Yes. Please. This preview alone trumps the majesties of The Lion King stage show, which was pretty incredible.
