Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind “Tangled” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” presents “Frozen,” a stunning big-screen comedy adventure. Fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey—teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven—to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf (voice of Josh Gad), Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom. The film is directed by Chris Buck (“Tarzan,” “Surf’s Up”) and Jennifer Lee (screenwriter, “Wreck-It Ralph”), who also wrote the screenplay. It is produced by Peter Del Vecho (“Winnie the Pooh,” “The Princess and the Frog”). Featuring original songs from Tony® winner Robert Lopez (“The Book of Mormon,” “Avenue Q”) and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (“In Transit,” “Winnie the Pooh”), and an original score by Christophe Beck (“The Muppets,” Oscar®-winning short “Paperman”), “Frozen” hits theaters in 3D on Nov. 27, 2013.
The ride will not feature any new Frozen songs, but there will be new lyrics to existing songs, written by composers Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez. The Malestrom ride, which had been open for 27 years, took visitors on a floating log tour through Norwegian mythology and history. The logs and path will remain intact, but everything around it will be different. Frozen Ever After will be set during a winter festival in the summer, where Arendelle residents celebrate their favorite season.
Visitors will get to see part of the ride while waiting in line, walking by the Wandering Oaken's Trading Post where the Oaken trader will be seen clearing steam from the windows and yelling, "Yoo-hoo," which Kathy Mangum considers "scene one" of the ride. After boarding the logs, fans will get to see Olaf and Sven setting up the winter festival premise, before moving on to Troll Valley, where "Grandpappy Troll" tells a group of children how Anna and Kristof first met. After going up a ramp, visitors will next see Olaf ice skating next to Anna, Kristof and Sven, who are all singing, before entering through a set of doors to find Elsa singing the classic "Let It Go" in the ice castle, which is considered the centerpiece of the ride.Read More
While it seems Frozen 2 isn't actually happening (not yet anyway), which mirrors previous word from Disney after the original came out, many speculate that this is a franchise Disney will not just sit on for too long. It's believed that Disney has begun to develop future Frozen adventures with the two directors, but they do not want to dilute the brand. It may be a decade before the sequel actually hits, with more shorts to come in the next few years.

Will The DUFF be another teen classic that is as fondly remembered 30 years from now as The Breakfast Club is today? While it's garnering great reviews, it's difficult to see that far into the future. One thing is for certain, though.

Another unconfirmed report from The Daily Mail speculated that the adaptation will debut on Broadway at some point in 2017. However, Disney has not confirmed that the musical will even debut on Broadway, referring to it simply as "a stage adaptation." While it's possible that it may end up on Broadway, that has yet to be confirmed, but since the stage play is certainly in the works, hopefully we'll have more concrete details soon. The Daily Mail's report also revealed that Alex Timbers, who directed the Mozart in the Jungle pilot for Amazon Studios, is attached to direct the stage play, but his involvement has yet to be confirmed by Disney.
Jennifer Lee will make her stage debut by writing the book for this musical, although Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez are no stranger to the stage. They have composed the music for Broadway hits such as Avenue Q and The Book of Mormon, just to name a few. Are you excited to learn more about Frozen's stage musical? Let us know what you think below.Read More
