Disney’s got talent!

Mickey, Minnie and other Disney favorites will christen the ice at the Barclays Center in an upcoming spectacle that takes a new twist on Disney’s best-known classics.

The skate show “Rockin’ Ever After” remixes the stories of Disney’s most adventurous heroines with talent search TV shows so popular these days, with classic characters Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and Donald scouring the globe in search of Disney favorites to compete to be the next superstar. The comical segments revolve around the now familiar tales of famed Disney princesses like Ariel from “The Little Mermaid,” Rapunzel from “Tangled,” Belle from “Beauty and the Beast,” and Merida from Disney Pixar’s “Brave” in her ice debut.

“Our challenge in developing ‘Rockin’ Ever After’ was figuring out how to highlight moments from these beloved stories in a way that reflects the type of entertainment that families value today,” said producer Juliette Feld.

“By pulling elements from the talent show trend on contemporary television, we developed a truly unique way to lead into each fairy tale.”

As the Disney posse journeys to find the most talented performers in the land they will come across special routines by Sebastian and the daughters of King Triton in “The Little Mermaid,” the stepsisters from “Cinderella,” and Pinocchio.

A moment not to miss in the show, which took nearly a year to craft, is when Ariel magically gets her legs and performs a dazzling ballet in the air above the ice.

Disney On Ice’s “Rockin’ Ever After” Barclays Center [620 Atlantic Ave. at Flatbush Avenue, (212) 359–6387, www.disneyonice.com]. Nov. 27–Dec. 2, starting at $23.95.
