A first look preview trailer has been released for Beetlejuice: The Musical. That’s right, Beetlejuice has made his way to Broadway. It sounds crazy, absolutely. Downright absurd. But hey, is it as crazy as Beetlej…err, him going to Hawaii?

With Frozen being the massive hit that it is today, there is no way that Disney will ever “let it go” (Yes I went there). Frozen Fever, an animated short, was released last year and attached to showings of Cinderella. And now we are getting a sequel.
But it doesn’t stop with just the films. In fact, the film was such a huge success that Disney announced that there would be a Broadway adaptation. Now it appears that they have ironed out the kinks, and have set an early engagement, which will then be followed by an official release. More on the story below.

A southpaw underdog wants to make it as a big time fighter, but he just can’t catch a break. He gets kicked out of his locker at the local gym, run by Mickey. He’s just a little too soft for his job as a loan shark’s muscle (won’t break bones). And the girl he’s crushing on won’t give him the time of day. That is, until Apollo Creed unexpectedly needs a new opponent when his original opponent for the world heavyweight title drops out because of an injury.
Ever the businessman, he wants to fight one of Philly’s own, a nobody that gets a shot at the title. He chooses “The Italian Stallion,” Rocky Balboa. Rocky wins over shy pet shop girl Adrian with a little help from her brother Paulie, gains Mickey as a trainer, has a training montage complete with running up those famous steps, and wows everyone in the climactic fight.
