'Frozen' Trailer: She's as Cold as Ice

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! Get More »

Disney on Ice: First 'Frozen' Teaser is Here

Even unto its 53rd animated feature film, Disney's not changing the formula — that is, oh-so-loosely basing its cartoon film fare upon the eldest and grimmest of fairy tales and then putting a slappy-happy spin on what might otherwise be considered a pretty dark story.

Such is the case with "Frozen," as this first teaser trailer for the film makes clear.

The movie features Anna (voiced by Kristen Bell), a "fearless optimist" setting off to find her cold-hearted sister Elsa (Idina Menzel) and put an end to the cursed endless winter of the kingdom of Arendelle with the help of a mountain fellow named Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and his little reindeer pal, Sven. Sound familiar?

Well, it's a sorta-kinda redux of Han Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen," but you wouldn't know it from this first-glimpse, which is totally centered around a goofy little snowman named Olaf (Josh Gad)... you know, sort of like how the squirrel always got the nut in the similarly snowy "Ice Age" teasers. The scene is cute, though, and that's probably just the point.

Meanwhile, the studio has also released a few teaser images from the film which thankfully show a bit more substance.




"Frozen," co-directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, hits theaters in 3D just before winter, on Nov. 27.

Kristen Bell: 'Some Girls' Have All The Luck

Since Kristen Bell burst onto the scene in 2004 with "Veronica Mars," we've been waiting for her to become a superstar. Despite being totally awesome, she hasn't quite gotten the recognition — or roles — that she deserves.

She had a memorable part in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" and several TV shows like "Heroes" and "Gossip Girl," but her breakout big screen role has eluded her.

Well, that's hopefully about to come to an end, because The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Bell has just signed on to not one but two upcoming features. Get More »

'The Avengers' Will Slam Evil in Three Dimensions

The Avengers

Prepare for breathtaking feats of superheroic derring-do to just come flying out at you.

In a bit of news that should come as a surprise to no one, Disney has announced that its upcoming ultimate superhero team-up, "The Avengers," will get the 3D treatment, according to Deadline.

Director Joss Whedon shot the film in 2D, so this will be a post-conversion process -- something that usually gets people worried as they recall the nearly unwatchable "Clash of the Titans." However, Whedon himself told JoBlo that he knew from the beginning that "The Avengers" would eventually be converted to 3D and thought about the format "every second" while filming -- and assures us that the film won't be "obnoxiously 3D."

"There's no, 'Oh look, we're going to spend 20 minutes going through this tunnel because it's in 3D!'" says Whedon. "And no one is pointing at the screen the entire time. But it's an action movie. Things tend to hurtle toward the screen anyway."

Well, "Thor" and "Captain America: The First Avenger" both had 3D versions, so we guess there's no reason why "The Avengers" can't have one, too.

The third dimension for "The Avengers" isn't the only announcement Disney made today as it also revealed the title for the super-secret Pixar movie that has everyone buzzing. The title is "Frozen," which certainly fuels the rumors that the movie is about dinosaurs -- and shouldn't be confused with the horror movie of the same name (the one where kids get trapped on a ski lift whilst wolves circle below). Stay tuned for more details as they arise!

"The Avengers" will hit theaters on May 4, 2012 and "Frozen" arrives on Nov. 27, 2013.
