New clip from Disney's Frozen with Kristen Bell is like Tangled on ice!

08.12.2013

After seeing the first trailer for Disney's upcoming FROZEN, I felt like it was more of an unofficial sequel to TANGLED than a bona fide new entry in the animated genre. That's not a bad thing, either, as I actually really enjoyed TANGLED when I went into it ready to loathe it entirely. However, they pulled off the right amount of charm, humor, and adventure to make the film a success and FROZEN looks similarly fun, complete with a talking snowman sidekick and a trusty reindeer to help along voice actors Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, Idina Menzel, and Alan Tudyk into the frosty tale. Today, we have a new clip that highlights the playful tone and colorful characters that will likely make this a solid jaunt for the family set come the holidays.

Take a look:

Here's the synopsis:

Fearless optimist Anna teams up with Kristoff in an epic journey, encountering Everest-like conditions, and a hilarious snowman named Olaf in a race to find Anna's sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom in eternal winter.

While some may scoff at this not being traditionally animated, I think there's a future in the digital department for Disney (outside of Pixar, that is), especially after WRECK-IT RALPH, which proved that the studio could deliver a CG animated feature that was better than their Pixar counterparts (i.e. BRAVE).

FROZEN is set to debut on November 27, 2013.

shame

With the history that Disney has, I wish someone over there would just man up and make something traditionally hand-drawn again. Dreamworks has the smug grins and over the top gags covered, it's a shame Disney has to lower themselves just to stay current. Everything here is so on the nose. What happened to artistic individuality, or giving something a little bit tougher than baby food for the audience to chew on. Come on Disney, challenge me with something other American studio's haven't

I'm biased since I'm living in the East, but FOR REAL, old powerhouses like Disney are DECADES behind the work of most studios in Japan. Disney has the history and the weight to throw around to bring back a proper revival of animation in the US. It's all becoming so one note that even Pixar is losing its luster :-(

@Bigger Boat - Well considering the overwhelming number of studios creating dramatically different content on a monthly basis in Japan... yea there's a lot. Even if you are only speaking from the drop in the bucket that makes it to the West, there's still a lot of diversity. Ghibli, Madhouse, Studio 4C, the list goes on and they all have a vast range even within studios. It's absurd to think otherwise.
From Studio 4C alone, works like Animatrix and Gotham Knight are all about artistic

From Studio 4C alone, works like Animatrix and Gotham Knight are all about artistic diversification.
If you've only seen Naruto and Pokemon, you don't have a proper understanding of the kind of content that is coming out of Japan. Animation is a much bigger industry in the East and as such it's grown into a greater medium for a much wider and mature creative landscape.

I enjoyed Tangled even if it couldn't quite reach the magic of the Disney renaissance films we all know and love, and I appreciated that it tried. Wreck-It Ralph was nothing short of a magical experience. It had the right combination of heart, sneaky in-jokes, good vocal performances and outstanding style and animation. This looks...okay, but I think the animation feels a notch or two down from what was put on display in Tangled. Perhaps this isn't the final form of the footage.

Don't have a problem with the CG animation - Tangled was great after all and I know for a fact they're not going back to 2D any time soon - but BOY was that some crappy dialogue. [run up to cliff] "Watch out it's a cliff" "It's 100 feet down!" Holy shit movie, we can fucking see that already! Six year olds will roll their eyes at this if it keeps up. Yikes.
