Disney's next big animated film. Frozen, is but a few months away. Here's the new trailer...
Earlier this week, Frozen's co-director Jennifer Lee revealed on her Twitter feed that the new movie from Walt Disney Animation Studios was now complete. We now just have to wait until December for its release.
Mind you, for those who have been following efforts by Disney to bring the story of The Snow Queen to the screen over the past decade or two, another month or so isn't going to hurt. Frozen is, finally, Disney's take on Hans Christian Andersen's story. We've seen about 10-15 minutes of footage from the film thus far, and whilst it's way too early to judge the movie based on that, it did make us want to buy a ticket for the biggest possible screen we could find.
For now, though, »
There's a Disney animated flick coming to theaters this holiday season, and this time around it's a princess vs. princess showdown. A teaser for Frozen was released this summer, and now a full-length trailer has arrived online. The movie is (loosely) based on Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen, and features Kristen Bell as the hero of the story, Anna, and Glee's Idina Menzel voices her Snow-Queen sister Elsa. It's an animated, based-on-a-fairy-tale Disney flick, so it's pretty much expected to be full of gorgeous images, catchy songs, and likable characters. From what we see in this trailer, this flick will likely deliver all three. The movie will open November 27th, just in time for Thanksgiving.

Walt Disney Pictures has just released online its latest, action-packed trailer for Frozen, featuring the voices of Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad, Santino Fontana and Alan Tudyk. Based loosely on Hans Christian Anderson’s ‘The Snow Queen’, the 53rd film in the Disney Animation Studios collection is a stunning big-screen comedy adventure directed by Chris Buck (Tarzan) and Jennifer Lee (Wreck-It Ralph), who also wrote the screenplay. Frozen centers around a young dreamer named Anna (voiced by Bell), ‘who sets off on a journey, teaming up with an extreme mountain man Kristoff (voice of Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven, to find her »

Disney kept it pretty cute and coy with its first little teaser for "Frozen," but now it's time for all the twisty darkness of the chilly tale upon which it's based to come through, right? 'Cause they say it's a play on Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen" which was not exactly your airy-fairiest fluff story.
Well, judging by this theatrical trailer for the 3D animated pic, nahhhh, it's still gonna be mostly just adorable talking snowmen and such (this is the Mickey Mouse studio we're talking about here). Andersen purists, steer clear!
For everyone else, meet Anna (Kristen Bell), a brave go-getter sort of girl who thinks she can go and talk her big evil sister Elsa the Snow Queen (Idina Menzel) out of keeping the kingdom under a spell of eternal winter if she traipses up to her icy lair with Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), the resident hunk »

First came Tangled. Then came Wreck-it-Ralph. Now, Frozen might just be the film to cement Disney’s return to the world of quality animated features. Because these things are decided in threes, apparently. The first theatrical trailer for Frozen has just been released, and it may just be the trailer, but the classic Disney vibe feels a little subdued. Were Frozen not a fairy tale – and it is, being loosely based off Hans Christian Anderson‘s “The Snow Queen” - the emphasis on humor might be a little overwhelming. The set up we’re given for the story is especially hokey, with some boilerplate narration and a whole lot of hokey puns. “Ice Guy” or “Nice Guy”? “Snow Man” or “No Man”? I thought society had already moved past this after the abomination that was Bee Movie. But while this trailer may be heavy on the gags and light on the Disney magic, the »

Walt Disney Animation Studios – the restructured Walt Disney Feature Animation – has, so far, provided audiences with a healthy diet that includes the sort of fairy tale movies that’ve long been the Mouse House’s bread and butter, along with quality original content like Bolt and Wreck-It Ralph. This year’s offering from the studio, titled Frozen, is a slight break from tradition; not so much in terms of source material (it’s loosely based on Hans Christian Anderson’s The Snow Queen), but because the female lead is neither a princess nor a princess-to-be…. well, as far as we know, anyway.
Frozen revolves around the awkward, yet plucky and spirited, young woman Anna (voiced by Kristen Bell), who goes on a dangerous journey in order to attempt and break the endless winter spell cast upon her home kingdom of Arendelle – inflicted by Anna’s ...

Disney has released a brand new trailer for forthcoming animation Frozen, in which the Mouse House presents a new take on the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale, The Snow Queen. The new film is set in a kingdom trapped in an eternal winter courtesy of a fiendish spell cast by the witchy Elsa, the Snow Queen in question. Fortunately, her sister Anna is a more kind-hearted soul, and she teams up with a mountain man and his talking reindeer to try and break the enchantment and rescue the kingdom. Take a look at the new trailer,...

"The land is covered in eternal snow." Following the first teaser trailer back in June, the full theatrical trailer for Disney's new computer animated fantasy Frozen has arrived. It doesn't feature any of the original music that will hopefully shine in theaters, but it does show off the stunning animation, adventure and silly comedy coming this fall. Kristen Bell seems to be a great new animated leading lady, and Josh Gad will be cracking people up as that little snowman. However, if the quest is to bring summer back, what's going to happen to him when all the snow goes away? That's going to be kind of sad. Just watch! Here's the new trailer for Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee's Frozen, originally from Yahoo: Frozen, loosely based on Hans Christian Anderson's story "The Snow Queen," stars Broadway legend Idina Menzel as Elsa, a magical queen in self-imposed exile, »

Disney may have been seen as trailing behind Pixar in recent years, but the creative and commercial success of Tangled put them firmly back on the map in 2011. Marrying the latest cutting-edge CG animation technology with traditional Disney storytelling, Tangled's formula looks like it will be repeated for Frozen.
Featuring the voice talents of Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel as Anna and Elsa, opposing sisters who are locked in an eternal winter in the kingdom of Arendelle, the film looks set to warm the hearts of cinemagoers when it arrives this winter. Digital Spy sat down with producer Peter Del Vecho to find out more about Disney's big Christmas release.
Frozen, loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen's story The Snow Queen, has been in the works for decades, originally being developed as a Walt Disney project while the studio chief was still alive...

Nationwide the weather is beginning to turn colder as fall approaches, but Disney is already teasing winter wonderlands with their latest poster for their Thanksgiving release Frozen. The image above was released to USA Today along with some new details on its frosty premise. From left to right, we have Hans (voiced by Santino Fontana), Anna (Kristen Bell), Olaf the living snowman (Josh Gad), Elsa (Idina Menzel), and Kristoff (Jonathan Groff). While the snowy poster certainly sells the icy climate of this family-friendly feature, it does little else to interest us. It.s nowhere near as eye-catching as the movie.s previously released series of vibrant character posters. Penned by Shane Morris and Wreck-It Ralph co-writer Jennifer Lee, Frozen offers a new take on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale The Snow Queen. As a nod to the Danish author.s own heritage and influences, the film.s directors, Lee »
Disney's Frozen animation directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, starring Kristen Bell, Josh Gad and Idina Menzel, has added a sixth movie poster. This looks like another winner and is actually based on Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen fairy tale. Jennifer Lee also scripts alongside Shane Morris. Jonathan Groff, Tom Kane, Santino Fontana, Livvy Stubenrauch and Eva Bell also star. In Frozen, fearless optimist Anna (voice of Bell ) teams up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven in an epic journey, encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf »
Sure, summer has become the go-to season for family fare and animated epics, but fall always comes with its fair share of movies for kids of all ages.
So, what titles can you (and your family) look forward to this fall? Sure to be a hit with younger kids, "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2," the sequel to the 2009 surprise hit, charms its way into theaters in late September. Perfect for the teens and tweens,"Catching Fire," the highly-anticipated follow-up to last year's Ya novel-turned-blockbuster "The Hunger Games," gets a mid-November release. And just in time for the holidays, Disney aims to entertain the entire family in late November with "Frozen" (photo above), an animated, musical adventure loosely based on the Hans Christian Andersen tale, "The Snow Queen."
Even if none of the movies we just mentioned strike your (or your family's) fancy, there's bound to be something coming out this fall that will. »

Disney is in the process of developing another CG animated adventure that has yet to be announced, called Giants. Thanks to Bleeding Cool, we have some details on the new film that all you Disney fans might be interested in hearing.
First of all, the film will be an adaptation of Jack in the Beanstalk, kind of likeTangled is to Rapunzel and Frozen is to The Snow Queen. The movie is being directed by Nathan Greno (Tangled), and as you might expect, it's going to be in the same style and tone as Tangled and Frozen.
For one thing, they both have a hero called Jack, and Giants named for the Fee Fi Fo Fum rhymes. »

A couple of clips for upcoming movies hit over the weekend, at polar opposites from each other, one for a big animated movie that's still a few months away, the other a red-band featurette for an imminent R-rated comic book blockbuster. The latter is from this Friday's "Kick Ass 2," with a featurette that sets up a final confrontation between Chloe Moretz's Hit Girl and a new adversary that might prove her match: the gigantic Mother Russia, played by newcomer Olga Kurkulina. It's a little odd to be hyping up something that's clearly part of the film's climax, but the fight choreography seems to be fairly impressive, which makes this the first thing we've seen from the film that doesn't make us want to walk into traffic in order to avoid seeing it. The other clip is from something much more family friendly: Disney's holiday-season hopeful "Frozen." A "Tangled"-ification »

Apparently Walt Disney himself was forever keen on bringing the renowned Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale The Snow Queen to the big screen – and with various failed attempts, at long last Disney have finally adapted the story – and HeyUGuys were fortunate attendees at a preview footage screening of Frozen, where we were given a fascinating insight into the development of such a big children’s animation.
Directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee and hitting our screens this winter, tying in conveniently with Christmas, Frozen is a CG production, featuring a voice cast consisting of Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel and Josh Gad – and producer Peter Del Vecho (who was in London to oversee this special presentation) spoke of the decision to cast various stage actors in the feature – deviating away from the huge Hollywood A-listers we so often seen in films such as this.

John Lasseter has one rule: Walt Disney Animation Studio films have to be amazing. They bear Walt’s name, after all.
In celebration of a slew of announcements at Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, Calif., on Friday, audiences were treated to never-before-seen clips and concept art behind two of their most anticipated properties — Frozen, with appearances by voice actors Kristen Bell and Josh Gad, and Big Hero 6. Lasseter also announced the development of Zootopia, a brand-new concept for 2016 that puts the animals back in clothes.

Every week of 2013, Thn brings you a retrospective of a Walt Disney Animated Classic. From Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs to Frozen, from the Disney Renaissance of the 1990s, to the wilderness years of the 1970s, each will be looked at with a loving, if critical eye.
This week, we dive under the sea to be part of the world of The Little Mermaid.
1989/ 82 minutes
And so began the Disney Renaissance; after almost two decades of misfires and failures, the duumvirate of Clements and Musker brought forth a string of some of Disney’s greatest and best-loved animated films.
The genesis of Disney’s The Little Mermaid began back in the 1930s, as part of a package film of short tales based on the work of Hans Christian Andersen. The idea was dropped for a number of reasons, but was given a »
