ITV1 is to screen a one off entertainment special called ‘Ultimate Movie Toons’ which will air on the channel early in 2010. The X Factor’s Dannii Minogue has been signed up to present the show, which looks at the most popular animated movie music.
“The show brings together the nation’s best loved and most magical animated movie ‘toons’ of all time, the most popular songs will be performed live by original artists and special guest stars during the show, including Katherine Jenkins, Mika, Michael Ball, Pixie Lott, the cast of Lion King, Denise Van Outen and many more.” said ITV.
Live music will be mixed with dance performances and movie footage. ITV suggest that it’ll be family entertainment at its best.
“I am so excited to be hosting this amazing show for ITV. I have been a huge fan of animated films since I was a child. These movies are timeless and have entertained the world for generations. Just like The X Factor only the public can decide the winner“ says Dannii Minogue.
Everything from the early classics like Snow White and Pinocchio, right through to the modern day masterpieces such as Madagascar and Happy Feet will feature in the show.
But it will be left to the public to decide the Ultimate Movie Toon, choosing between hits like The Lion King’s ‘Circle of Life’, ‘The Bare Necessities’ from The Jungle Book, Toy Story’s ‘You’ve Got A Friend In Me’. You can vote at www.itv.com/movietoons
