Fathom Events, Chelsea Road Productions and Tricord Media are teaming up to present a limited US theatrical release next month for Ice Dragon: Legend of the Blue Daisies — a new allegorical faith-based film from Canadian director-producer Bruce Stacey (God Rocks!, Journey to Christmas).
The film, the first of a planned trilogy, will screen nationwide on Saturday, March 24 at 12:55 p.m. and Monday, March 26 at 6:30 p.m. (local time). Audiences will also be treated to a live-action short film featuring kids’ reactions to the movie’s themes, as well as an exclusive music video. Tickets go on sale Friday, Feb. 9 at www.FathomEvents.com and participating theaters.
Ice Dragon: Legend of the Blue Daisies follows a gifted young dreamer named Melody (voiced by Rheal Rees) and her feisty friend Leif (Justin Debé), who 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. Bill Bray also stars as the voice of Nicholai.
“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,” said Stacey. “I am thrilled this family adventure is making it to the big screen for audiences nationwide to enjoy.”
