As the unfathomable success of Frozen continues to sustain, Disney is being very careful with how they exploit the title. They’re slowly but surely rolling the film and its characters into theme parks. There are no immediate plans for a sequel, but a short film will be out in March. And there have been talks of a stage adaptation too, which just took a major step forward.
The Frozen stage show just officially announced its writers, songwriters and director. Good news, Frozen fans, they’re familiar. The writer and director will be Jennifer Lee, the co-director of the film. Then Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, the Oscar-winning duo behind the songs in the original film, are doing the songs for the show. So basically, the Frozen musical is in capable, familiar hands. Read more on the Frozen Broadway musical below. Read More »

After all the talk about Disney’s Frozen as an eye-popping fairy tale epic about the bonds of sisterhood, it was a bit surprising to find that the first teaser was… a 90-second short about an anthropomorphic snowman and a weirdly dog-like reindeer. Cute as the video was, it didn’t offer much of an idea as to what the film would really be like.
Fortunately, a new trailer does a much better job of showing off the movie’s grand, gorgeous sweep. The only catch is that it’s dubbed over in Japanese. Oh well. At least we can still enjoy the frightening snow monsters and dazzling snowy landscapes. Check it out after the jump.

Frozen started off as a pretty straight-up adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson’s story The Snow Queen. But, as we detailed earlier today, it mutated to become something rather different. Now it is a story of “two sisters torn apart by a big family secret,” with Queen Elsa (Idina Menzel) as the elder sibling, who cursed her kingdom to be permanently on ice, and Anna (Kristen Bell) as the younger, who tries to find Elsa after she flees the kingdom.
Based on some of the concept art we’ve seen, I expected one thing from the film — something rather grand and pretty. But this first teaser trailer doesn’t deal with family or curses, and it isn’t “grand,” exactly. It has a much smaller conflict in mind. Take a look for yourself below. Read More »

We’re fast approaching the part of summer when it becomes so hot and humid outside that ducking into a Smurfs sequel just for the air-conditioning seems like a reasonable life decision. But for the characters of Disney’s Frozen, that’s not ever a problem.
The studio has released several new pics from the icy animated feature, set in a land where it’s always cold. Queen Elsa (Idina Menzel), whose accidental curse sparked the permanent chill, has fled the kingdom, leaving her younger sister Anna (Kristen Bell) to track her down and set things right.
Also caught up in the adventure are mountain man Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and his trusty reindeer Sven, charming prince Hans (Santino Fontana), and chatty snowman Olaf (Josh Gad). See images of all of them and get new plot details after the jump. Read More »

We’ve had an eye on Disney’s adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen‘s The Snow Queen for years now, as it stopped and started and stopped again and got reworked into the CG adventure Frozen. So it’s exciting to realize that its release date is finally just under a year away. Today, the studio unveiled our best look yet at the upcoming film, in the form of a colorful bit of concept art.
The new image shows heroine Anna (voiced by Kristen Bell) and her pal Kristoff strolling through an icy landscape created by her sister Edna (voiced by Idina Menzel). While we’ve seen a few sketches and drawings from the project before, this gives us a much better idea of what the finished product will ultimately look like. Check it out after the jump.
