When Frozen was released in 2013, it became a smash hit on a scale that caught Walt Disney Animation by surprise. Part of the reason for its success was the movie’s soundtrack, which was full of catchy and memorable songs – chief among them being “Let It Go,” the movie’s most show-stopping musical number. It remains to be seen whether the upcoming Frozen 2 will produce a song that’s on that same level, but Olaf’s Frozen Adventure – Disney’s new holiday featurette that continues the Frozen story – certainly tries with “When We’re Together,” a new song that’s gunning for the top spot on your holiday playlists this season. Check out the official lyric video below.

While Frozen fans are patiently waiting for a sequel to the 2013 hit animated musical, they might take solace in a batch of new animated shorts coming to The Disney Channel next month. However, these versions of their favorite characters are a little different because their inspired by the LEGO versions of them found in the building block playsets.
LEGO Frozen Northern Lights is a new collection of animated shorts featuring the building block versions of Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff and Sven on an adventure to restore the glimmer of the Northern Lights, which are barely visible from the kingdom of Arendelle. Now the first LEGO Frozen Northern Lights trailer has arrived, and you can watch it below. Read More »
The animated musical Frozen was a massive runaway hit for Walt Disney Animation back in 2013, making a sequel to the movie a forgone conclusion. However, Disney dragged their feet a bit when it came to confirming plans for Frozen 2, and it wasn’t until just over a year ago that the project was officially announced. We still don’t have a release date for Frozen 2, but the good news is star Kristen Bell has revealed that production is slated to begin next month. Read More »

Disney has so far resisted the temptation to make a Frozen sequel — quite a feat, really, considering the icy adventure is the highest-grossing animated movie of all time. But it seems they may only be able to hold out for so long.
Idina Menzel, who voiced Elsa, has stated that a Frozen 2 is “in the works” and that she hopes to return. Read the Idina Menzel Frozen sequel comments after the jump.

Idina Menzel‘s Oscar performance of Let It Go was overshadowed by John Travolta’s “Adele Dazeem” mishap, but she hass quickly refocused attention on the song. The star of Frozen appeared on The Tonight Show to perform the popular ‘Let it Go’ with Jimmy Fallon. Better yet, they did it as one of Fallon’s signature bits. He occasionally adapts songs with his house band, The Roots, playing children’s instruments such as xylophones, triangles, tiny keyboards and more. That’s what happened last night.

Walt Disney Animation Studios has released character images for their upcoming 53rd animated feature film Frozen.
The story follows “fearless optimist Anna” (voiced by Kristen Bell) who teams up with a rugged mountain man named Kristoff (voiced by Jonathan Groff) and “his loyal reindeer Sven in an epic journey, encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf in a race to find Anna’s sister Elsa (Idina Menzel), “whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom.”
The movie is set to hit theaters this Thanksgiving, but we can meet the cast of characters now. After the jump you’ll find images of all the main characters, along with information about their roles.

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.

As Disney’s Frozen picks up steam, we’re getting some new details on the animated Snow Queen adaptation — which, the more we hear about it, sounds less and less like a Snow Queen adaptation. Not that that’s a bad thing.
We’ve known for a while that the movie would center around a female lead journeying across forbidding territory to end the Snow Queen’s spell, but a new synopsis fleshes out the plotline a bit more. For starters, the heroic Anna (Kristen Bell) and the Snow Queen (Idina Menzel) are now sisters; for another, Anna will be aided in her quest by a couple of sidekicks, including a reindeer and a sentient snowman. More after the jump.
