Somehow this trailer was just as awesome as the first for Frozen II, the highly anticipated sequel to one of the highest grossing pieces of animation ever. Along with it we get se teases of finding put how Elsa got her powers, as well as her transition from Queen to Superhero. As the trailer states they've always thought her powers were to much for the world to stand, but now they question if it'll be enough to save it. I'm so excited for this film as the last one was pretty centered in one place. As this one takes the story into new heights with a more action & adventure direction. These previews have brought me in with an amazing amount of anticipation for a film i thought i wasn't even gonna be to pumped about until I saw the first. In fact I kinda wish I could trade spots with Lion King on this one. I'm ready to build a snowman again! What about y'all? Am I the only one that dug this trailer as much as the first?

This Frozen The Broadway Musical trailer was great. I was a little worried after I had heard these two songs that were released previously. Not that they're bad, I just didn't really think they were Frozen quality. They sounded like "sequel" songs from the 90s. Good, yet not rememberable really. That's just what I think though, you could love them. I just wasn't really feelin them on a Frozen level. Comparing the songs, I like Anna's True Love more than Elsa's Monster . The trailer is where they really shine though. The stage effects look amazing. All the freezing elements that light up, as well as the spikes that come from the ground. The set pieces are crazy cool. That fall though bridge is great. The real surprise is how much I dug the Olaf & especially the Sven puppets. If I could swing the cost, I would totally go see this. What about y'all? This live up to Frozen for ya or would you take a pass? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
I don't know if this is still a thing, but when I was a kid there was one thing a cartoon did to prove it had "made it". A cartoon character's Oscar, or Star on Hollywood was getting a giant balloon in the 91st Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Ladies & gentlemen Olaf has made it. That's right not only will he star in Coco's opener Olaf's Frozen Adventure later this year, he will also be getting blown up & paraded through New York City Thanksgiving on NBC. Go Olaf! I'm going to tune into the parade now for the first time in awhile, & yes, it's just to see a giant Olaf. So is this a big deal anymore? I mean these balloons have always been the classics. If anyone new deserves that spot it's Olaf. Thoughts? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
I really want to see the special effects of Frozen: The Musical so bad. I've heard the puppet used for Olaf is amazing. The scene down bottom left on what looks like an ice bridge with Anna (Patti Murin) & Kristoff (Jelani Alladin) looks amazingly real. Elsa, top right looks friggin' regal as she's crowned. Hans (John Riddle) in the center with Anna somehow looks like the smug bastard that we know he becomes even while singing & dancing. Bottom right is the cast seemingly being "frozen". I would love to see that one in action just to see what effects go with it. Based on the picture alone the scene looks really funny playing out in my head without effects. I have to address the reindeer in the room though. Top left if you actually didn't notice that very scary reindeer. I don't know why it creeps me out so much as it looks like a pretty legit reindeer. For some reason though, from the time I first saw that thing it came off as creepy. Anyway, these pics came from Oh My Disney, & Frozen: The Musical will be playing in the Denver Center for the Performing Arts through October 1st, 2017 & hit Broadway February 22, 2018. I would love to see this, but it's a little too rich for my blood. Would love to know what y'all think of these pics though. Put it in the comments, like, & share.
Entertainment Weekly released these pictures of the cast in costume for Broadway's upcoming Frozen: The Musical & they are definitely more on point with what we'd expect. I was a little worried after the first concept pics of some of Anna's costumes came out. That coupled with the talk of the other "more realistic" changes scared me. These look amazing though. As if the characters jumped right off the screen. This is fantasy coming alive on stage to the fullest. That said though, I'm most curious to see how they pull of some of the more fantastical elements of this story. Not only Olaf the singing snowman, but the very animated reindeer Sven as well. We'll know for sure when Parri Murin, Caissie Levy, Jelani Alladin, & John Riddell come together for the try-out in Denver Aug 17 - Oct 1 & arrive in Broadway February 2018. Where there will be more story, more songs, & 362 costume based on 172 designs all inspired by the Oscar-winning animated film. Part of me wants to try to get a look at this while it's in Denver, but I'm starting to think I should've planned that idea a little better. Anyway, what do y'all think of these beautiful costumes?

Frozen is Disney's newest addition to Broadway, scheduled to debut Spring of next year. Chip & Co. had some details as well as some costume reveals. They mentioned those wouldn't be the only changes as the Broadway version will be 20 minutes longer, with some changes to the score. All the original songs will be there, in addition to 12 new songs just for Broadway. Wondering at what point does this become something too different to resonate with fans. That being said back to these costumes. What the hell are those? They look like someone went to the Alaskan Salvation Army & decided to play dress-up. You've got the Queen of green trash bags & her cold weather carriage driver. It's like they're going for a realistic approach in a story with a talking snowman. I'm totally not feeling these, not that I frequent Broadway anyway. This hasn't got me wanting to change that so far. What do y'all think? What's your feelings on these costumes? Let me know in the comments, like, & share.
(UPDATE) Apparently a couple of sites are floating these pics around with pics of both sisters. Thanks to Stitch Kingdom, & some further digging to make sure, originating in the NY Post it appears both of these costumes belong to Anna. Doesn't really change my views on them, but nonetheless, they are only Anna's. She is both the Princess of green trash bags & the cold carriage driver.
The featurette for Coco has released a trailer. Why is this featurette so important as to get a trailer? Beacause it's Olaf's Frozen Adventure. That's right, everyone's favorite summer lovin snowman is gettin a solo. A short solo, but a solo nonetheless. Featuring four new songs, this will reunite Josh Gad, Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, & Jonathan Groff from the original. It's to be directed by Kevin Deters and Steve Wermers-Skelton and produced by Roy Conli, with the original songs being by Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson. This trailer's really good, with the featurette coming off looking hilarious. It actually made me laugh out loud more than a couple times. Now I'll say something that's going to be really unpopular though. The first time I saw Frozen, I didn't really care for it. It's grown on me a lot since, but even though I didn't care for it, I loved Olaf. He quickly became one if my favorite animated characters. So needless to say, this just gave me another reason to be counting down the days until November 22. Tell us what you thought of this trailer down below, & don't forget to please like & share.
If you can't wait to be king or have an itchin to build a magical snowman bad news is you're going to have to wait until 2019. Good news is we now know when in 2019. Disney has announced the dates for Frozen 2 as well as the live action retelling of The Lion King. In regards to the return of Elsa & Anna in Frozen 2, they will let it go on November 27, 2019. On the other hand be prepared for the live action Lion King on July 19th of 2019 with the unreplaceable James Earl Jones reprising Mufasa, Childish Gambino Donald Glover as Simba, & Jungle Book director, Jon Favreau. If I could by tickets now I probably already would have them. I can't wait for Lion King as it's one of my all time favorites & honestly Frozen grows on me a little more as a whole every time I watch it.
The Wrap reported that Disney has found the leads for the upcoming Broadway musical version of Frozen. Caissie Levy (Ghost; Wicked) has been picked to play the Ice Queen Elsa. While Patti Murin (Lysistrata Jones; Xanadu) will play Anna. They will be joining cast members Jelani Alladin (Kristoff), Greg Hildreth (Olaf), John Riddle (Hans), & Robert Creighton as Duke of Weselton. Frozen will open next spring at the St. James Theater as well as play at the Buell Theater in the Denver Center for Performing Arts Aug. 17 to Oct. 1, 2017. I'm probably not the best to speak on this as I've never seen a play in my life, much less a Broadway play. Not ruling it out, just never really had the chance to go to anything that piqued my interests. Sorry to the cast of RENT. It seems like the ones I really want to see take a long trip & then drop an amount of money on top of that, that I don't want to drop just to see a show. I would love to hear anyone else's Broadway stories though. Especially if they involve seeing the Lion King. Get in the comments & let's see if we can twist my arm a little to getting out there.
