Join us this Christmas for a glittering, seasonal spectacle packed with epic adventure, spell-binding magic, action-packed excitement and heart-warming friendship.
Gerda and her brother Kai are inseparable but when the shard of enchanted mirror falls into Kai’s eye, he becomes cold and cruel. As the heartless Snow Queen steals him away, only Gerda believes that he can be saved.
Armed with just her wits and buffeted between blizzards and the Snow Queen’s sorcery, Gerda joins with the mischievous Jack Frost to embark on a magical and compelling journey to reach the Ice Palace in the heart of the frozen north. Meeting beautiful princesses, ferocious robbers, dastardly wizards and mysterious old women who may not be what they seem, they must race through the four seasons to rescue her brother and prevent the Snow Queen’s terrifying plan to plunge the world into eternal winter.
All with the help of a friendly, talking Yeti!
