I would adore seeing Anastasia on stage..

Ugh....Anastasia is NOT DISNEY!!!! It's just an expensive Disney knock off! I hate it when people do say its Disney.


Not Disney, but I do love Once Upon a December.

Personally, I love the Finding Nemo musical at Animal Kingdom, and I would love to see it expanded to a full-on show.

Apparently there's also a Toy Story musical on the Disney cruises, and the whole show is up on YouTube, but I haven't had time to watch it yet.

No votes for Pete's Dragon? It's practically ready-made for the stage as is. And the soundtrack even offers additional material that wasn't included in the film versions of the songs. Add those bits, retain the dance sequences, and it's got a decent enough book and score that nothing need be added. Indeed, the only thing it might need is some trimming.

It's probably highly unlikely, but I'd love to see a stage version of A Goofy Movie or Tangled. Both are great and have songs that are oozing with Broadway potential.

I'd also like to see Tangled expanded on in a stage version, but I can't how they'd recreate Maximus the Horse on stage. But I can see I've Got A Dream working well.

If it does happen, I'd like to see When Will My Life Begin reorchestrated into a proper Disney song rather than the random anachronistic guitar pop that it is. Also, the additional songs should include some medieval style songs like how the background score is written in places

I recall years ago when I saw the sequel to The Absent Minded Professor, which was called Son of Flubber, that I would like to see it staged. I don't remember any details.

My two favorite Disney movies are from the same era, even sharing some voice actors. One has been translated to stage, the other has not. And, while I think this wholesale export of movies to stage musicals simply to profit on name recognition should die a quick and painful death, I can't fault wanting to extend the reach of The Jungle Book and wouldn't be averse to a nice Robin Hood....

I'd be interested in seeing Brave as a stage musical. Maybe the music could be some sort of fusion between Broadway and Scottish trad. music. I can definitely imagine "Mhaighdean Bhan Uasal" having a big sweeping strings reprise in the score somewhere. Plus it could draw from the stuff that got cut earlier in production.
