Disney's next animated adventure, Frozen, looks to be an icy blast

14 December 2012 8:30 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Disney has had a good string of non-Pixar animated since John Lasseter took over the team. From Tangled, Winnie The Pooh, Bolt, and Wreck-it Ralph can attest, Disney would not be completely lost without an annual contribution from Pixar. The latest film from Disney Animation will be next year's Frozen featuring the voices of Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel. Frozen will be directed by Chris Buck (Disney's Tarzan, Surf's Up) and Jennifer Lee. Lee will also write the screenplay, a job she most »

Disney Releases First Image Of New Animated Film Frozen

14 December 2012 5:27 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Like we told you back in June, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 53rd full-length animated feature, Frozen is slated to hit the big screen on November 27th, 2013.

With option to co-direct and help assist the film Disney brought Wreck-It Ralph‘s scribe Jennifer Lee. Now, the latest round of concept art by Jim Finn has made its way online, giving us our first glimpse at the snowy environment along with our first colored look at two main characters, kind-hearted Anna and her cliffhanging friend Kristoff.

In this variation on the classic children’s tale ‘The Snow Queen’, Anna (voiced by Kristen Bell) and Kristoff (whose voice actor hasn’t been revealed yet) venture into the mountains to find her older sister Elsa (Idina Menzel) — who has the power to control wind and ice.

Since the author of ‘The Snow Queen’ source material was Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen, there’s a »

First Look at Disney's Next Animated Movie 'Frozen' is, Well, Frozen

13 December 2012 1:22 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

You might have to grab a jacket for this first look. Disney Animation has unveiled a photo from Frozen, the new animation musical starring Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel in singing roles. This is the back-from-the-dead "comedy adventure" Snow Queen project, being directed by Chris Buck (Surf's Up, Tarzan) and Jennifer Lee. EW.com has debuted the first bit of artwork by Jim Finn featuring Anna (Bell) in the winter wasteland created by her Snow Queen sister Elsa. "The unnatural quality of the ice emphasizes this is not, you know, sky-made ice, but ice made by someone," says Lee. I really want to see more from this already. "This is her sister's magic. Elsa created this winter storm and ice formation," reveals director Chris Buck. "We love the power of it, and yet there's a magical quality to it also." "We wanted to push it to the extreme."

Oscar Screenplays: 'Hyde Park on Hudson', 'Promised Land' and Disney's 'Frankenweenie' and 'Wreck-It Ralph' Added to the List

6 December 2012 7:13 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Oscar screenplays are continuing to arrive and today I've added four more to the list as Focus offers up Hyde Park on Hudson and Promised Land and Walt Disney Pictures has made available the screenplays for Frankenweenie and Wreck-It Ralph. The screenplay for Hyde Park on Hudson was written by Richard Nelson and if you're interested you can scroll to Page 14 and find the one scene in the film that everyone will surely be talking about after seeing the film. As for Promised Land, I watched it a couple nights ago and it's a decent film, written by Matt Damon and John Krasinski. It's a message movie focused on fracking and while it quite clearly has an agenda, it doesn't beat you over the head to the point you're numb. Frankenweenie was written by John August based on Leonard Ripps screenplay for Tim Burton's 1984 animated short. Wreck-It Ralph »

Book Review: Tarzan: The Centennial Celebration

2 December 2012 10:42 PM, PST | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

I’ve never been much of an admirer of Tarzan, the savage apeman creation of writer Edgar Rice Burroughs. While I can’t say that I didn’t like the character, I was always more into science fiction and thus my interest lay with Burroughs’ other, lesser known creation, John Carter of Mars. That’s not to say that I didn’t hate Tarzan, it’s just that he (and his adventures) seemed one-dimensional and pretty tame. After all, what’s there to do in deepest darkest Africa except fight wild animals?

Thanks to the efforts of writer Scott Tracy Griffin, my knowledge of Tarzan and his world has expanded greatly. Tarzan: The Centennial Celebration is Griffin’s new hardcover tome, a 320-page coffee table book that lays out the history of the character, from the original stories written by Burroughs nearly a century ago to Tarzan’s transfer »

Jennifer Lee To Take On Disney’s ‘Frozen’

30 November 2012 7:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Jennifer Lee, one of the writers behind Wreck-it Ralph, has been confirmed to co-direct upcoming Disney project Frozen.

Frozen is loosely based on Hans Christian Anderson’s The Snow Queen and will star Idina Menzel (star of Broadway show Wicked) and Kristen Bell (Get Him To The Greek) as sisters Elsa and Anna. However, this isn’t a normal type of sisterly relationship – Elsa is a queen who exiles herself into a frozen forest, leaving Anna behind. Who should Anna call on to help her rescue her beloved relative? Why, a lumberjack mountain man called Kristoff and Sven, his reindeer…

Reports suggest that Frozen is harking back to the days of Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs and will be based around some cracking musical numbers. Lee will co-direct alongside Tarzan captain Chris Buck.

Frozen will hit Us cinemas from 27th November 2013, with a UK release date of 20th December »

Pixar Hires 'Safety Not Guaranteed' Writer and Steinfeld Joins Costner in McG Actioner

30 November 2012 7:00 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

1.) While recent news confirmed the Safety Not Guaranteed creative team of Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly to be working on a remake of Flight of the Navigator for Disney, Connolly has also been working on a project for Pixar for almost a year. While we know nothing of a plot or even a title, we do know the director is Teddy Newton, who directed Day and Night, the short that played before Toy Story 3. Pixar projects take longer to see the light of day than most movies, so we probably won't see this mystery project for another 5 years. Still, it's reassuring to know that despite that whole Brave fiasco, the Pixar higher-ups have told Connolly "not to dumb it down or treat animation like it's for kids." Variety 2.)

'Wreck-It Ralph' Writer Jennifer Lee is Co-Directing Disney's 'Frozen'

29 November 2012 9:55 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Wreck-It Ralph was a big hit for Walt Disney Pictures this year, so it makes sense that the Mouse House would want to retain some of the talent that worked on that picture to help bring a future project to life. A press release reveals that Disney has hired Jennifer Lee, who co-wrote Wreck-It Ralph with Phil Johnston, to co-direct their upcoming animated fantasy comedy Frozen alongside Tarzan helmer Chris Buck. Lee got the job because of the work she did rewriting Frozen, but this will be her first time directing a feature. The movie is already in production and is slated to open on November 27th, 2013.

Frozen, loosely based on Hans Christian Anderson's "The Snow Queen," stars Broadway legend Idina Menzel as Elsa, a queen in self-imposed exile, and Kristen Bell as her sister Anna, who, along with a mountain man named Kristoff and his reindeer Sven, »

Wreck-it Ralph Scribe Jennifer Lee to Co-Direct Disney’s Frozen

29 November 2012 9:41 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Disney’s upcoming animated feature Frozen just landed an additional director.  The Mouse House announced today that Jennifer Lee will be joining Chris Buck (Tarzan) as co-director on the princess movie.  Kristen Bell voices a young dreamer named Anna who teams up with “a daring mountain man” to find the Snow Queen (Idina Menzel) and put an end to a spell that has trapped their kingdom in eternal winter.  The film harkens back to some of Disney’s earlier, more music-centered films as it will feature original songs from Robert Lopez (The Book of Mormon) and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (In Transit). Lee has already contributed to the screenplay for Frozen, so it appears she’s been involved with the project for a while.  She most recently was credited as one of the screenwriters for Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph, so hopefully she can bring some of the humor and heart of that film over to Frozen. »

Disney Name Jennifer Lee as Co-Director of Frozen

29 November 2012 9:12 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Disney have just announced that Jennifer Lee will be co-directing their 53′d animation feature movie, Frozen alongside previously announced director Chris Buck. The movie features the voices from Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, “Frozen” and tell us that Frozen will be the ‘coolest comedy-adventure ever to hit the big screen’.

Jennifer Lee has writing credits which include the recently released (if you’re in the Us) / upcoming release (if you’re here in the UK) Wreck-It Ralph and has obviously impressed the Mouse House as she’s been given the promotion to co-director. Questions have to be asked though. I wonder is why a second director needed to be brought onto the project. Could Frozen be melting in hot water? I guess time will tell as it’s due out in the UK 20th December 2013.
