Frozen 2

Walt Disney Animation Studios has released the first teaser for Frozen 2, the sequel to the wildly popular and successful Frozen.

Though we don’t know much about it now, it looks like Arendelle princesses Anna (Kristen Bell) and Elsa (Idina Menzel), along with the gruff mountaineer Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), his loyal reindeer steed Sven, and that adorable sentient snowman Olaf (Josh Gad) are back in an all-new adventure that takes them out of their kingdom and across the ocean to a new wondrous land. Check out the newest trailer and another image below.

Disney character Elsa of "Frozen" shapes snow and ice

With Frozen being the massive hit that it is today, there is no way that Disney will ever “let it go” (Yes I went there). Frozen Fever, an animated short, was released last year and attached to showings of Cinderella. And now we are getting a sequel.

But it doesn’t stop with just the films. In fact, the film was such a huge success that Disney announced that there would be a Broadway adaptation. Now it appears that they have ironed out the kinks, and have set an early engagement, which will then be followed by an official release. More on the story below.

Gigantic First-Look

At D23 Expo 2015 yesterday, as the presentations continued to roll out, John Lasseter excitedly talked about Disney Animation Studios’ next project, a retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk. To put a twist on the fairy tale classic, Lasseter revealed that the film wouldn’t be set in a fairy tale land, but rather it would take place in Spain during the early “Age of Exploration,” a seemingly fitting setting for a film about exploring areas unknown/unexplored. Like the recent Disney fairy tale films, this one wouldn’t be called Jack and the Beanstalk, instead it would be called Gigantic. It was also confirmed that Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the music team that brought us the Academy Award Winning Frozen, would also write new songs for the film.

More on the story below.

You’ll never want to “let it go” after taking a listen, as the soundtrack for Frozen, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ latest film, freezes your mind (and ears) in captivation. The tunes by Avenue Q songwriters Kristen-Anderson Lopez and Robert Lopez, as well as the strong score by Christophe Beck, swirl together in perfect rhythm. The combination of songs – worthy of being on your iPod playlist – and powerful tracks make Frozen not only one of Disney’s best soundtracks in recent years, but also one of the best film soundtracks you can purchase this year or any year.

Here are some thoughts on the individual songs and tracks from the Frozen soundtrack, which is available now on CD, Deluxe Edition CD, and MP3 Download. I’ve also notate my five favorite pieces.

Disney In Depth: ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ and the State Of Disney Animation

Wreck-It Ralph smashed box office records for a Disney animated film in its opening weekend, and won over critics and audiences no less. With its creativity, heart and passionate storytelling, Wreck-It Ralph signals Walt Disney Animation Studios is back in the game, so to speak. This edition of Disney In Depth will explore what has led up to this new hit for the studio, as well as what awaits.

Many individuals say the Disney Renaissance began with 1989’s The Little Mermaid, with following entries Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King reaching even greater heights – everyone seems to leave out the forgotten The Rescuers Down Under. Regardless, this represented a period of unparalleled imagination and inspiration within the studio, continuing for several years to follow. Then came the slump. Audiences were no longer interested in musicals, so it seemed, and Disney animation switched gears into the sci-fi realm with productions like Atlantis: The Lost Empire and Treasure Planet. Computer animation emerged, and with that advent Disney entered the new arena with misses like Chicken Little and the awkward-yet-smart Meet the Robinsons. None of these performed all that wonderfully. It had appeared as though Disney lost its touch. But the studio had some exciting developments up their sleeve.

At the bi-annual Destination D event at Anaheim’s Disneyland Hotel last week, the Disney D23 Official Disney Fan Club hosted a series of events that focused on the legendary history of Disney animated features. Hundreds of Disney fans gathered inside the resort’s convention center to obtain exclusive access to lectures, concerts and footage. Over the coming weeks inside Disney In Depth, I will cover some of those topics featured in the fascinating presentations held at Destination D. As for now, this edition will focus on the exciting future of the division we know as Disney animation.

Walt Disney Animation Studios appears like it is entering that third renaissance we have all been waiting for. With the beautiful The Princess and the Frog and delightful Tangled leading the way, the studio that suffered from creative missteps like Home on the Range is now producing hit films that resonate with audiences and appeal to critics to boot. During “Inside Walt Disney Animation Studios Today,” animator Darrin Butters hosted an appealing round-up of the studio’s newest projects.

Warning: This edition contains some spoilers of details mentioned at the event.
