9 most influential women in Hollywood: Kathleen Kennedy to Angelina Jolie

6 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A recent Forbes list named Sandra Bullock as the highest-paid actress in Hollywood, but when it comes to shaping the films coming out of the industry pipeline, you have to look behind the camera for the biggest movers and shakers.

Digital Spy takes a look at 9 of Hollywood's most influential women below...

1. Kathleen Kennedy

When George Lucas handed over the keys to his Lucasfilm kingdom he turned to Kathleen Kennedy, who began her Hollywood career as Steven Spielberg's secretary and swiftly rose through the ranks to produce hits such as Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park and The Sixth Sense.

Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm signaled an aggressive intent to relaunch Star Wars for a new generation – following on from Episode VII, we'll get to see big-screen sequels and spinoffs, an animated TV show, fresh Star Wars comics, novels and video games in a huge cross-media tapestry weaving together George Lucas's universe. »

3 September 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the runaway success of Frozen, Walt Disney Pictures has announced that a new short film entitled Frozen Fever will debut next Spring.

Set around Anna’s birthday and the complications that ensue when Elsa’s icy powers get in the way of throwing a celebration, Frozen Fever will reunite Frozen directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, along witrh songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.

Unlike Feast (which is attached to Big Hero 6) and Lava (attached to Inside Out), there’s no word on which film Frozen Fever will accompany, although with no animated Disney releases set for Spring 2015, my money is on Avengers: Age of Ultron

Elsa And Anna Set To Return In Early 2015 With Animated Short Frozen Fever

3 September 2014 7:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just as we’ve all stopped humming (or, alternatively, been subjected to) Frozen’s addicting jingle Let it Go, Disney has announced that the loveable animated cast from last year’s smash hit — including Elsa, Anna and yes, even Olaf — will return in spring 2015 for the animated short, Frozen Fever.

Set shortly after the events of the first film, Frozen Fever will centre around Kristoff and Elsa as they try to stage a lavish celebration for Anna’s birthday. Of course, with Elsa still struggling to harness and control her mystical ice powers, things don’t exactly go as planned in the kingdom of Arendelle.

Early reports have also suggested that this animated sequel-cum-spin-off will be screened in cinemas alongside Kenneth Brannagh’s live-action rendition of Disney’s Cinderella, though the company is yet to openly confirm if this is accurate.

Either way, Frozen Fever will indeed feature a new »

The Characters Of Frozen To Return With Short Frozen Fever Next Year

3 September 2014 1:05 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Considering it has brought in a cool (sorry) billion dollars in the global box office, people can't get enough of Disney's Frozen. Well, good news. The characters we all know and love are returning in a new animated short, Frozen Fever. The original's directors, Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, are back on board, as are all the cast for a story that sees Anna's (Kristen Bell) birthday party put at risk by Elsa's (Idina Menzel) icy powers. It will also feature a new song from the original's song smiths, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, though we'll have to wait and see if its as catchy as Let It Go. The short is slated for Spring 2015, meaning it will most likely run before Disney's new version of Cinderella. »

Disney confirms new Frozen adventure

2 September 2014 10:45 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A new Frozen short film, with new songs, is arriving in spring of 2015...

Since Frozen went on to become the biggest animated film of all time, there have been consistent rumours about a Broadway show (which, in truth, remains likely to happen) and a possible sequel (which hasn't been ruled out, but also won't be happening quickly). However, directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck have been back in the world of Frozen, and have put together a new animated short by the name of Frozen Fever.

Set around Anna's birthday, Frozen Fever will feature fresh songs from Robert Lopez and Kristin Anderson-Lopez, and will bring back together the main characters from the film.

The short is set to be released in Spring 2015. We suspect it'll be attached, then, to Kenneth Branagh's live action film of Cinderella, which Disney is releasing in cinemas around the same time.

More as we hear it. »
