Final Countdown to ‘Frozen’

Disney-Frozen-official

We’re just days away from the U.S. release of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 53rd animated motion picture Frozen. More and more people have seen the film, more and more interviews with the filmmakers have been published, and more and more excitement is building around the film’s release. Here are some noteworthy things for you to check out. Also note that this is a spoiler-free zone (I haven’t seen the film yet myself).

Wrap Party and Premiere

The animators and production team of Frozen held their wrap party at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood two weeks ago. Co-director Jennifer Lee posted this pic of the party on her Twitter feed (@littlejelee)

Search #FrozenWrapParty on Twitter for more pics and info from the party.

The film had its official U.S. premiere on Tuesday, November 19, 2013 at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. Make sure to follow the El Capitan Theatre on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for premiere pics from the Frozen “white carpet.”

Art Of Frozen

Books

Have you pre-ordered your copy of The Art of Frozen yet? The Disney and Pixar Art of…series published by Chronicle Books rarely disappoint and this one looks to be no exception. Written by respected animation critic and historian Charles Solomon and with a preface by John Lasseter and a forward by directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, the book looks to be chock full of awesome art from the development and production of the film. @FrozenFans got an early copy of the book and has been tweeting pics on their Twitter feed. The book will be released on December 3, 2013.

There are also many other Frozen titles for all ages from multiple publishers including Golden BooksDisney Publishing, and the always awesome DK. I’m excited to check out these titles, too (but not until I’ve seen the film).

Tweets

Lots of Frozen action is happening on Twitter. If nothing else, make sure to follow @heybrucewright, which is the Twitter feed of Disney animator Bruce Wright. Bruce tirelessly keeps the Twitter-verse updated with everything Frozen, including people’s reviews of the film, insights into the film’s production, and cool info about working at Walt Disney Animation Studios.

I’ll continue to contain my excitement for this film (and try to stay spoiler free as possible). Let me know if you see the film and what you think of it (but please don’t be offended if I don’t read or respond to your comments until after I see the film on November 27).

Frozen opens in U.S. theaters in 3D on November 27! Feel free to follow my obnoxious countdown to Frozen on my Twitter feed, too (@StanfordClark, #DisneyFrozen).
