A live stage show based on the 2014 animated movie The Nut Job is on the way.
Content creator Redrover and performing arts firm Monlove (the firm behind Ice Age Live) have teamed up to develop The Nut Job Live, with Cirque du Soleil co-founder Guy Caron on board as director.
The show will tour for four years, heading to over 100 countries, with DVD sales, t-shirts, character plushes and other additional merchandise to be sold on-site.
“We are excited that The Nut Job will be coming out of the screen and into arenas to meet with fans all over the world," said a Redrover representative.
“This is a bold new step for Redrover, and with the ‘The Nut Job Live!’ being created together with the production team behind some of the greatest Cirque du Soleil productions, we feel that the quality and success of the show are already ensured. We believe Monlove will outdo even the already stellar performance of ‘Ice Age Live!’”
The Nut Job 2 is set to be released in the US on May 19th, 2017.
