I love Disney movies, and I love Broadway musicals. Love or hate Disney Theatrical Productions, they can be a lot of fun (The Lion King will always mean a great deal to me, and I can’t wait for Frozen). So without further, here are just a few of the Disney movies I’d like to see turned into stage musicals.
- Mulan – They’re making this into a live-action movie, which I’m excited about but am also DEVASTATED about because it’s not a musical! I need a production number version of “I’ll Make a Man Out Of You.” So I’ll just wait until they bring it to the stage.
- Cinderella – There have been a LOT of Cinderella stage adaptations. That’s okay with me, because I love Cinderella stories. Disney has proven they know Cinderella (who else ADORED the 2015 live action Cinderella). Add a few more songs, and I think it would make a happy little musical that would leave me with a smile on my face (though I’d miss “In My Own Little Corner”).
- Tangled – Show me my money onstage, Disney! I want an amazing, long Rapunzel wig! The music in this movie is so catchy, not to mention, it features my animated boyfriend, Flynn Rider. This would be such a wild, fun romp for young boys and girls. And can we please bring back the voice cast?
- Hercules – I like this one because the music is so different than other Disney movies (seriously, I am rocking out to “Zero to Hero” right now). Hercules offers a lot of opportunities for special effects and a GREAT chorus. Please bring it on!
