Frozen is headed to Broadway, and we already have a wishlist.

Earlier this week Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that the very cool animated musical would be headed for Broadway. While we might not be seeing Frozen on Broadway for some time (Iger says, “We’re not demanding speed, we’re demanding excellence.”), we can still dream.

Frozen has been whirling up a storm since its release. It recently crossed the $300 million mark at the U.S. box office, and picked up the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature.

‘Frozen’ on Broadway: A wishlist

Include songs from the ‘Frozen’ deluxe soundtrack

We are still tapping our feet to “Fixer Upper” and annoying our friends with karaoke renditions of “Let It Go,” but there is no question that a Broadway adaptation of Frozen is going to need more songs. A lot more. And luckily for the creative team, the Frozen deluxe soundtrack has a range of songs composed for the film that went ultimately unused.

A lot of these songs have great potential but did not fit into the final script. Our personal favourites are the “Reindeer(s) Remix” and “Life’s Too Short,” but the seven extra songs by composers Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez certainly give the production team something to start with. And aside from these songs – the very first thing we want is a real song for Kristoff.

Magical special effects

“Let It Go” showed that while there was danger in Elsa’s magic, there was also great beauty – and we want to see this play out on stage. Frozen includes a lot of elements that might make the transition from screen to stage more difficult than a straightforward story. Unfortunately, that is the cost of magical and fantastical stories.

The other obstacle is that the solution for magic on stage is often a smoke machine, a wind machine, or flashing lights. The visual manifestation of Elsa’s magic is so beautiful that we hope the production team finds a way to incorporate it into the show. Other problem areas? The entire “Let It Go” sequence and Elsa’s ice palace, and Olaf. Which brings us to…

Don’t cut the side characters

Don’t take away Olaf and Sven. Olaf (Josh Gad) had one of the sweetest songs in Frozen with “In Summer,” and we would hate to lose this in the Frozen Broadway musical. And Sven made us all want to go home and get a pet reindeer, so we would be sad to see him go (and what would happen to the hilarious and adorable “Reindeer(s) are Better Than People”?

It is difficult to include non-human characters in a production without it seeming cartoonish. Frozen might have started as a cartoon, but the Broadway-style songs mean that Disney has a chance for this to be a classic Broadway production. The animals worked in The Lion King because they were all animals – in Shrek they were funny, but like we said, cartoon-y. Still, we have faith that Disney will find a way.

Keep some of the ‘Frozen’ cast

Frozen did well when it came to casting, and we really hope to see some of that translate into the Broadway show. Of course, when it comes to live on stage, the actors have to look the part as well as sound it. While we would happily buy Kristen Bell (Anna) and Idina Menzel (Elsa) as much younger characters if it meant seeing them together on stage, it is likely that the producers decide to go with a younger cast.

But one cast member who could stay on without question is Jonathan Groff (Kristoff). Okay, you caught us. Really, we mean “Keep Jonathan Groff.” Groff earned a Tony nomination for his work in Spring Awakening, and he certainly looks the part. That said, Menzel is one of the queens of the Broadway world, and would essentially guarantee sold out audiences every night – so maybe she is more likely to be asked that he first thought.

Forget seeing Luke Cage and Daisy Johnson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to Jeph Loeb, it’s simply too hard to plan.

Although the Marvel movies and TV series ostensibly exist in the same universe, and although Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. does its best to include Avengers references whenever possible, TV show characters are unlikely to ever show up in the movies.

This despite Chloe Bennet’s continued efforts to remind people that she is, in fact, Marvel’s first on-screen female Asian superhero, and the awesome crossover possibilities the Marvel Netflix series have opened up.

Marvel fans have long been aware of the difficulties of bringing TV characters into the movie ‘verse, but at the 2016 TCAs, Jeph Loeb provided a few more reasons for why it’s practically impossible to coordinate.

“Part of the challenge of doing this sort of thing is that the movies are planned out years in advance of what it is that we are doing,” Loeb says, as quoted by SlashFilm. “Television moves at an incredible speed. The other part of the problem is that when you stop and think about it, if I’m shooting a television series and that’s going to go on over a six-month or eight-month period, how am I going to get Mike [Colter] to be able to go be in a movie? I need Mike to be in a television show.”

In terms of planning out the character arcs, this makes a lot of sense. A Marvel movie might be mapped out years in advance of production, for not to mention release, which means any character scheduled to appear would need to have their stories planned for many seasons in advance. The continuity would certainly be hard to keep track of.

Of course they could still throw in cameos, which fans would probably really appreciate — and crossovers from movies-TV are much more doable, as evidenced by Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander)’s multiple appearances on AoS.

But Marvel is wary of doing that too much, too, because “we never want to be known as an Easter egg farm. It has to work within the story. We never want to do Luke Cage gets into a cab as Foggy Nelson and Matt Murdock are getting out of the cab,” Loeb says, referencing The Man From U.N.C.L.E..

However, don’t lose hope yet. “Anything is possible,” says Loeb. “As I often get reported by you folks for saying #ItsAllConnected, our feeling is that the connection isn’t just whether or not somebody is walking into a movie or walking out of a television show. It’s connected in the way that the shows come from the same place, that they are real, that they are grounded.”

If Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda weren’t enough to get you excited about Mary Poppins Returns, maybe Meryl Streep’s name on the roster will do the trick.

Mary Poppins Returns is not a remake of the original 1964 classic but rather a sequel to the Julie Andrews-led musical. As such, it stands to reason that we’ll be getting some new characters this time around. One of those characters will be Miranda’s Jack, who will be a street lamplighter.

And, according to Variety, another one of those new characters will also be portrayed by none other than Meryl Streep, who will be taking on the role of Mary Poppins’ cousin, Topsy. And, yes, the legendary actress will be taking on a singing role for the film.

This will also reunite Streep with her Into the Woods co-star Blunt, as well as Director Rob Marshall and Producer Marc Platt. Streep played the Witch in Into the Woods, while Blunt portrayed the Baker’s Wife opposite James Corden.

Disney’s official synopsis for Mary Poppins Returns reads:

Blunt has been cast as Mary Poppins and Miranda will play a new character, a street lamplighter named Jack. Drawing from the wealth of material in P.L. Travers’ seven additional novels, the story will take place in Depression-era London (when the books were originally written) and follows a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, who, along with Michael’s three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.

Mary Poppins Returns and will hit theaters December 25, 2018.

Are you on board with ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ now that Meryl Streep has joined the cast?

Uh oh — fans of Nick and Jess aren’t going to like this news! Megan Fox is returning to New Girl in season 6 for a major arc.

Last season, Megan Fox stepped in to fill in Jess’ place while Zooey Deschanel was on maternity leave. During that time, Fox’s character Regan grew quite close to Nick! They even ended up going to Cece and Schmidt’s wedding together and made plans for the summer. With awful timing too, since it seemed like Jess was just about ready to admit her feelings for Nick.

Now TV Line is reporting that Fox will be returning for a huge story arc in New Girl season 6. It’s believed that Nick will return home from his summer with Regan alone, but she will appear around the middle of the season. The timing of her appearance is due to Fox’s own pregnancy with her third child.

If we had to guess, we’d say that the writers will definitely be throwing some angst into the script. It always seems like either Jess or Nick is pining for the other while they’re in a relationship. Will Jess try to get over her feelings for Nick with someone else? Or will she just try to show him why they should be together? Fans will have to wait and see when the show returns!

New Girl season 6 returns to Fox on September 20 at 8:30 p.m. ET!
