Following the success and the grandeur of more recent Disney princess films, Frozen depicts the epic tale of two princesses finding themselves and each other, metaphorically and literally speaking. The adventure takes place amidst a frozen Norwegian kingdom called Andrendell, which is ruled by the two princesses, Anna and Elsa, sisters, with magic abilities. When Elsa disappears after a rather extreme mishap with her powers, the kingdom falls under a terrible ice and snow storm and Anna must set off to find her sister before it is too late.
Anna does not have to complete the dangerous journey alone, she brings along two daring sidekicks, a grisly mountain man, and Sven a trusty reindeer. Together they overcome obstacles of all shapes and sizes, including magical creatures, and the icy, blizzard ridden, winter engulfed lands to save her sister from her kingdom and her kingdom from the eternal storm.
With an all star cast that includes Kristin Bell and Idina Menzel, Disney's Frozen utilizes its writers, famous cast, original songs, and new animations to provide children of all ages with a princess tale from a new and colder corner of the world.
Just when you had finally gotten "Let It Go" out of your head, there's this news: Disney has greenlit "Frozen 2." There will officially be a sequel to 2013's hit animated film, as reported by Variety. The announcement was reportedly made during the Walt Disney Company's annual shareholders meeting early Thursday. According to reports, Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck will return to direct the film. We have to assume as well that songwriting duo Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez will also return to compose the music, considering their massive success the first time around.
Itâ€™s a no-brainer if you think about it, but Disney should still get credit for coming up with the idea of a â€śFrozenâ€ť-themed ice-skating show. The touring version of â€śDisney on Iceâ€ť featuring characters from the blockbuster movie will hit the road in the fall, and it will be just one prong of the many-pronged marketing attack taking advantage of â€śFrozenâ€ťâ€™s success. The New York Times reports that the show will be mostly based on â€śFrozen,â€ť as opposed to previous shows which drew from lots of different Disney properties.
If you've ever sat there and wondered which Disney princess you should marry in order to steal her inheritance, we may have an answer for you. Virgin Money used all their best guesstimates to determine which Disney princess had the biggest net worth, and E! Online summed it all up for us. So, who was the big winner? According to the highly scientific study, Princess Jasmine came in at #1 on the richest princess list, which isn't too surprising considering she's the daughter of a sultan.
"Do you wanna build a snowman?" has never sounded so creepy. YouTube user Bobby Burns has done the impossible (or at least the unlikely): He took clips from Disney's "Frozen" and edited them together to make it look like a horror movie. You'd be surprised at how much difference some filters and a change in soundtrack makes! The recut trailer has a very "Carrie"-like vibe to it, painting Elsa as an outcast who, rather than going off to live on her own so she doesn't endanger anyone, pretty much does the opposite and starts attacking people.
Disney's breakout hit "Frozen" will be coming to the Oscars! Idina Menzel ("Rent"), the voice behind the ice-cursed queen Elsa, will be performing the nominated original song "Let it Go" (written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez). The song is up against "Happy" ("Despicable Me 2"), "Ordinary Love" ("Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom") and "The Moon Song" ("Her"). Menzel is thrilled to be performing live.
We can't quite tell whether to file this one under "cool" or "creepy." A Japanese clothing company has come out with a brand-new line of movie-related lingerie for women, but the movies the products tie in with aren't what you might expect. The line includes four sets of lingerie based on Disney princesses. So, if you feel so inclined, you can now wear a bra and panties modeled after Rapunzel (from "Tangled"), Aurora ("Sleeping Beauty"), Belle (from "Beauty and the Beast") and Cinderella (from "Cinderella," duh).
There was no better movie to suit the state of the nation this weekend, and "Frozen" took advantage of the wintry vibe to take first place at the box office, ahead of the week's only new wide release. "Frozen" took in $20.7 million over the weekend, its sixth since debuting in wide release on Nov. 27. Although "Frozen" hasn't held the top spot since the weekend of Dec. 6, it's stayed with "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" near the top every week since.
The weekend after Christmas belongs to the youngsters. At least that's what the traffic at the box office this weekend suggests. The top movie for the weekend is going to be, according to early estimates, "Frozen." The animated movie is in its sixth weekend of release, but it's beating all of the week's new releases, as well as "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," which has held the top spot since its release on Dec. 13. "The Hobbit" is still holding on well, though, and it will likely take the second-place spot for the weekend.
