olaf's frozen adventure abc

Looks like Disney doesn’t intend to put Olaf’s Frozen Adventure on ice.

The polarizing Frozen short received a cold reception when it aired in front of screenings of Pixar’s sumptuous new film Coco, with many complaining of the short’s 20-plus minute length and the lack of warning to audiences concerning its placement. Thankfully, two weeks after the short’s run and the frustrated outcry surrounding it, Olaf’s Frozen Adventure was pulled from theaters. But hell would freeze over before Disney lets go of anything related to their animated juggernaut Frozen. Annoyed parents can now be treated to all 21 minutes of the holiday special in the place where it was meant to premiere all along: TV.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 The Last Jedi

Fans of Star Wars Battlefront II were up in arms when they realized it would take 40 hours of game play (and a heck of a lot of in-game credits) to be able to unlock the ability to play as Darth Vader, and EA ultimately relented to the overwhelming pressure and made that character (and others) far more easily accessible to all.

Now a slick new trailer for the game shows off highlights of its upcoming first “season” of free downloadable content, which incorporates characters like Finn and Captain Phasma and locations like Crait from Rian Johnson‘s upcoming sequel Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Take a look.

the nutcracker and the four realms first look

Just in time for the holiday season — when your family will drag you to another local performance of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker —we get our first look at Disney’s upcoming The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.

The first look at the House of Mouse’s adaptation of the classic ballet is like if The Chronicles of Narnia met Alice in Wonderland, an epic fantasy. In other words, a visually opulent fairy tale with a lot of snow. And Keira Knightley is wearing a giant pink wig.

incredibles 2 trailer

The Incredibles came out in 2004, but in a new image from the upcoming sequel, Pixar’s superhero family hasn’t aged a day. Despite the 14-year gap between movies, The Incredibles 2 picks up right where the first movie left off, with Bob, Helen, Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack suited up and looking like their old selves. To tweak a certain movie quote: we get older, these animated superheroes stay the same age.

Taika Waititi Star Wars

Taika Waititi has gone from indie filmmaker to blockbuster super-director with the success of Thor: Ragnarok, which means it’s only a matter of time before he moves on to even bigger things. Like Star Wars, for example. Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy recently confirmed that she’d be thrilled to have Waititi direct a Star Wars film, and Waititi has expressed a vague interest in the past. So don’t be surprised if this becomes a done deal at some point.

X-Men in the MCU

As rumors abound about Disney buying Fox, there’s one question on everyone’s mind: how many people are going to get laid off due to this deal?

Also: does this mean that Fox’s Marvel properties will find their way into the MCU? Fox owns the rights to the X-Men, a fact that no doubt sticks in the craw of many a MCU purist. If this deal happens, would the X-Men be able to be part of the MCU? Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige certainly hopes so. Below, Feige reveals how eager he is to have the X-Men in the MCU.
