DreamWorks brings the power of the hit movie How to Train Your Dragon to life as a live arena experience in the How to Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular. This stunning arena show started in March 2012 with the premier in Melbourne, Australia and was an immediate hit. After completing the first four stops of the tour in Australia and New Zealand, the dragons hopped across the ocean for a North American tour starting in the US, following in the footsteps of the highly successful Walking with Dinosaurs arena show. After touring Canada and the United States, the How to Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular will head to China next.
No formal dates beyond the January 2013 showing in Anaheim have been announced, but the show will be heading to China next. Previously, it was thought that a second leg of the US tour would be added to cover the midwest and southern states which were not yet on the tour schedule. However, in January 2013 it was announced that the remainder of the US tour had been postponed in favor of taking the show to China. Where the show will tour after China has not yet been announced, but a tour of Europe and the UK are highly likely. It is also expected that the show will return to the US to visit many of the cities that have been missed. And like Walking with Dinosaurs, it is anticipated the Dragons arena show will be so popular that it will return again to many of the same cities at some point for encore performances. In particular, the show will most likely return to Australia where it started in a couple of years.
