'How To Train Your Dragon' to appear live on stage

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (5 votes)

 ArenaHow To Train Your Dragon - the story of a young Viking who defies generations of tradition by befriending a dragon - was a hit for DreamWorks in 2010.

Loosely based on a children's book series by Cressida Cowell, the movie grossed nearly $500 million worldwide, and won the 2010 Ursa Major Award for Best Anthropomorphic Motion Picture.

Now the story is being adapted for the stage.

Between March 2–11, 2012, the Hisense Arena in Melbourne, Australia will host the premiere of How To Train Your Dragon: Arena Spectacular, a live-action show featuring over twenty dragons. Built by local animatronics workshop Global Creatures, the biggest will be fifteen metres long and operated by three people.

After its Melbourne premiere, the show will tour Sydney and Brisbane before going abroad to New Zealand and the United States.

I used to own the book -- if you can find it, it's a great read!

FML. I need a website, but I have not a domain.

The play seems a bit strange. If they made it like a realistic movie to begin with, maybe not.
