Re: Disney's Frozen - Grading and Discussion

^^True, but let's face it...her big sister's a pretty blond who brings snowmen to life and makes ice castles by gesturing and stomping her feet. No amount of niceness and pluckiness is competing with that.

At this point somebody should start organizing "The Church of Elsa." We'd give Scientology a run for its money.
I think it has become more of a cult now.
But "church" sounds nicer, and it would be tax exempt!

Frozen passed Transformers 3 and Return of the King to become the sixth biggest movie worldwide

Big thanks to Japan!

The 400 million domestic milestone should be reached by next weekend. Captain America is doing great too!

Anna really deserves more attention than she gets though, she was a great character as well.
All the Anna dolls have been sold out in all the stores around me for weeks now. To be fair, many girls probably settled for her since Elsa has always been nearly impossible to find.

Re: Disney's Frozen - Grading and Discussion

Frozen has crossed $400 million at the domestic box office

As you look at that top-grossers list, you don’t find very many female-centric pictures. You’ve got the Leonardio DiCaprio/Kate Winslet-starring Titanic, the action-centric The Hunger Games, and male-skewing films that played well to both genders (pretty much anything that goes that high needs gender-neutral appeal). Frozen is the only unapologetic “chick flick” on the $400m list that had no male heartthrob, mass destruction, or hard action to sell. It is a film not just about a lone woman in a (stereotypically) male-centric genre (war, action, etc.), but about women and with little to entice the male gender beyond its quality.

So yes, Frozen should be celebrated as a box office milestone, both in terms of its final gross, in terms of how it made its money (slowly, fueled by word of mouth), and how it bucked conventional wisdom (it’s an unapologetically female-centric fairy tale). It’s proven yet again that a female-centric film can reach just as high on the blockbuster scale as a conventionally male-centric one.
Frozen has done it!

Awesome I double dipped and got the full Bluray version not long ago. Still hasn't beat Brave in that respect (got the DVD/BR/iTunes although the DVD was a birthday present).

I found an amazing interview with director/screenwriter Jennifer Lee about the making of Frozen! Every fan should give it a listen/read.

Re: Disney's Frozen - Grading and Discussion

So...Elsa's gonna be on Once Upon A Time:





Okay...Am I the only one who thinks this is kinda like Disney spiking the ball? It's like someone in Corporate HQ said, "Okay, not only do we have the number one animated film in history, not only do we have a character so popular soccer moms are fighting police actions over her dolls, let's put that character on the hit TV fairly tale show...on the network we own! "

Me, I love Elsa to death, but I've never seen more than one or two eps of OUAT all the way through, and I don't think even her presence is gonna make me watch it regularly in the fall.

But, I could be wrong...

I don't watch OUAT at all, but I will this next season solely because of adding Elsa.

It might get some OUAT fans to go see the movie as well.

I so wished I like OUAT better, I love the idea but find the show too soapy for my tastes.

Re: Disney's Frozen - Grading and Discussion

While they will call her Elsa and allude to Frozen, I think if they are looking for an antagonist that she will be more like the Snow Queen in the original H.C. Anderson tale.

I was wondering how long it would take for someone to post that OUAT clip of Elsa.

This is most likely. They introduced the Wicked Witch of the West this way last season and i think she was a villain...


oops...okay, missed this interview:

http://www.eonline.com/news/540908/o...-elsa-and-more

Elsa was locked away in Rumple's dark chamber of horrors, does this mean that our Ice Queen is next year's new villain?
AH: I would say with Elsa that one of the great things about that character and that we loved so much is that she was misunderstood and that is something that we definitely want to carry over into our interpretation.
How true are you going to stay to Elsa's character in the movie? Could we see that classic Once Upon a Time twist with her as well?
AH: Well, it's funny, we're not going to redo the movie, because we just don't feel like it's in anyone's interest for us to redo it. But what we are going to do, we're not ready to tell you. But what we can say is we're very aware of what we think makes this character from Frozen so special and we want to honor that and make sure that what we do is in the universe of everyone fell in love with this past year.

Re: Disney's Frozen - Grading and Discussion

I wonder if the OUAT showrunners themselves are fans of Elsa and want her there, or if this is just a mandate to have her on the show from the higher up Disney executives? When the new season starts, Frozen will have been out for almost a year so this doesn't seem like much of a cross promotion, but the movie is not old enough to be grouped with the more classic Disney films. Not new enough, but also not old enough to be a classic. Frozen finds itself in a funny situation as a film.

I heard the OUAT writers really wasted Rapunzel, they didn't give her much to do, so fans shouldn't get their hopes too high for Elsa.
