"The original story sat in my drawer for more than 20 years until I was encouraged by friends at Cartoon Conrad Productions (Kulipari-Netﬂix Original Series) to dust it off and adapt it for the screen," Director and Producer Bruce Stacey said. "I am thrilled this family adventure is making it to the big screen for audiences nationwide to enjoy."
Melody, a gifted young dreamer, and her feisty friend Leif must set aside their differences and use the power of magical Blue Daisies and an ancient Song to save their world from an evil Ice Dragon. When the blue flowers that once bloomed all around her village began to disappear, Melody and her eccentric grandfather recognize this as a sign of great danger... but no one believes them! Racing against time, Melody must convince Leif and the other villagers before it's too late.
Starring the voice talents of Rheal Rees (Melody), Justin Debe (Leif) and Bill Bray (Nicholai), "Ice Dragon: Legend of the Blue Daisies" features original songs and engaging characters that highlight this inspiring animated adventure for the whole family.
"The best part of the event cinema experience is being able to enjoy it with the whole family," Ray Nutt, CEO of Fathom Events said. "This inspirational feature offers a vibrant interactive experience for young and old fans alike. 'Ice Dragon: Legend of the Blue Daisies' will bring families together in faith, hope and fun, all at their local cinema."
