Ready to shed a tear for Frozen?
Frozen’s codirector, Jennifer Lee revealed in her twitter account that during the weekend the production crew cried after watching the initial sequence of the film, finished. One of the artists of the film, Paul Briggs twitted that everyone just loves how the film starts, that it truly steals your heart. Well, we all know Disney knows a thing or two on how to accomplish that.
I can’t wait for this movie.

FROZEN IS THE FIRST FILM TO PRESENT TWO OFFICIAL PRINCESSES
It has been confirmed that the two leading characters from the upcoming Disney film, Frozen, will both enter the official Disney Princess Franchise, as Merida will later this year. These two sisters are princesses in the story, and although it was informed that Anna would join the franchise, Elsa joining is hot news. The campaign will take place November 2014 when the film is released.

R.I.P HARALD SIEPERMANN
Harald was a 50 year-old german artist, who recently passed away in February 16th, suffering from cancer. He was very beloved in the industry, and began his career working in comics and tv series, in cities like Dusseldorf, Zurich and London.
His Disney history began with story sketch on Who Framed Roger Rabbit. It was his character designs for which he was most sought after, and he contributed visual development to numerous Disney features including Mulan, Tarzan, The Emperor’s New Groove, Brother Bear, Treasure Planet, Enchanted and even Frozen (which at the time was going to be called The Snow Queen). He participated in films from other studios such We’re Back! A Dinosaur’s Story, which happens to be one of my favourite non-Disney films.
This has truly been a major loss for the animation industry, specially Europe as he used to educate future artists with his lectures through schools in his continent.
Thank you for sharing your talent with us, you will be dearly missed.

FROZEN GOING THROUGH INTENSIVE PRODUCTION
In less than 9 months time, Frozen will be released. Three sequences have already been animated, such as the main confrontation between Anna and Elsa (the Snow Queen).
The second and third acts of the film have been written and aproved, while the first one is been slighlty modified so the relationships between the leading characters will be more defined and solid, so the audience will follow it better and identify with not only the characters, but the story.
Frozen is being directed by Chris Buck (Tarzan) and Jennifr Lee (Wreck-it Ralph) with six original songs telling the story of the Snow Queen. It will be in theatres 21st November.
