Things We Saw Today

Things We Saw Today: The Princess and the Evil Queen from Disney’s Frozen

Rapunzel, is that you? (via Collider) Edit: False alarm; the images are fan-made.

  • André Cassagnes, the creator of the Etch-A-Sketch, has died. Ow, right in the childhood. (via The Frisky)
  • Amazon has scored exclusive rights to stream Downton Abbey, which is good for Amazon Prime members but bad for Netflix subscribers, since the site will lose Downton later this year. Season three will debut on Amazon in June. (Gizmodo)
  • Also via Gizmodo, The Wall Street Journal has confirmed that Sony will be announcing the PlayStation 4 on February 20th and realizing it later this year.

I am extremely jealous of the friend Kirsti Rawstron made this crocheted TARDIS blanket for. Best part? “The light and the windows glow in the dark, and the light has sparkles worked into it.

  • There is a MONSTER at the end of this Twitter conversation.” Stuff like this is why whoever runs @SesameStreet deserves a medal. Complete with a Wil Wheaton cameo! (via Tough Pigs)
  • Welp, Lois Lane has died again. In a comic book tie-in to Injustice: Gods Among Us, but still. Corrina Lawson writes about her many, many deaths over at GeekMom.
  • Christoph Waltz is hosting Saturday Night Live on February 16th. I approve. (ScreenRant)

Let’s play Spot the Hobbit with this promo pic from Edgar Wright‘s The World’s End. (Hint: Bluetooth) You can see one more image, featuring Simon Pegg looking kind of like a supervillain, at I Watch Stuff.

    The designs for “Frozen” don’t strike me as full of personality, but I’ll have to see them in motion before I decide how I feel about them. Still, it’s just a bit disappointing to see something so visually similar to “Tangled” when there are so many other options. DIsney: make a movie that looks like “Paperman” and you can have all my monies.

  • TKS

    I really liked Tangled. I am glad they are making a sequel. Perhaps they got the idea form their last Tinkerbell movie?

  • Anonymous

    Not only does it look like Tangled, but the heroine and villain look exactly the same, too. Unless there’s some twist where they are in fact the same person or twins, Disney’s really phoning it in.

  • Rebecca Pahle

    They ARE sisters, but I think “phoning it in” is still true. :)

    That said, I like how you can see hints of the voice actors (Kristen Bell for Anna, Idina Menzel for Elsa) in the character designs. That’s cool (no pun intended) at least.

    I would really love it if Disney would go back to their years of diverse artistic styles and influences. I always found the medieval tapestry style in Sleeping Beauty and the resulting color palate to be inspiring.

  • Anna Sophia May

    Disney princess named Anna??? My face is full of joy.

    Oh, but you can have some fun with that aspect. Just imagine Christopher Lloyd saying the following line:

    “No, Eugene, you and Rapunzel are fine. It’s your kids; something has got to be done about your kids!”


  • Anonymous

    Not only is she another *adorable blonde!!1!* but her expression is super vacant…like she just got clocked in the head with something

  • Jordan Ruttle

    Wait wait wait. These posters are FAKE.

    These are old designs, they are NOT accurate to the movie.

  • Ultra Fem

    I thought these were Dreamworks posters. They sure LOOK like Dreamworks.

  • Dana Marie Vittum

    That fact that there was two quotes from Buffy in the GeekMom article makes me very, very happy.

  • Cris

    Oh, yay! Another blonde, blue-eyed, generic princess that looks nothing like Rapunzel from Tangled !………

  • Nick Gaston

    Indeed…and, IIRC, the rendering for “Tangled” was originally supposed to look even more like a “painting” than normal CGI. Paperman really gave ME an idea of how that might turned out.

  • Anonymous

    Other news sources are saying the Frozen posters are fanart being posted as official…which is a bit of a relief to me, and probably why the characters look so similar to Rapunzel and the winter fairy from Tinkerbell:

  • Jenny Cabotage

    omg “There is a Monster at the End of This Book” was one of my favorite books as a kid. <3 <3 <3

  • Laura Truxillo

    I think I’m always gonna be a little disappointed with it because someone online made Disney-style versions of the characters as if it were going to be set in Peru, and they were just fantastic.

  • Anonymous

    just fyi, it’s been announced that those Frozen posters are fake and were not released by Disney. the website that originally posted them has taken them down.

  • Ashe P. Samuels

    I’ve seen some designs based on the Saami people (located in Scandinavia, of all places!), and they are absolutely amazing. It’s a raging shame Disney glossed over so much potential to give us yet another interchangeable Thin Cis Heterosexual White fantasy couple.

  • Travis Fischer

    Surprised to see these are still here. Disney pulled them from Bleeding Cool.

  • TKS

    “Sir! People REALLY don’t like the Frozen designs!”
    “What? We did the big eyes, what more do they want?”
    “They’re saying it looks exactly like Rapunzel!”
    “I see. Well, say the designs were a fan art that got accidentally posted as official.”

  • Xandra Kat

    Anna’s pretty cute, but Elsa…No. She looks too sweet! She doesn’t strike fear in your heart as the untouchable Snow Queen with a heart of Ice, now does she? In fact she looks more like a plucky herione in disguise. What happened to characters like the terrifying Maleficent? The creepy Frollo? The down right scary Evil Stepmothers? I’m hoping this isn’t any indication to where the real Disney is actually going. Don’t ruin Snow Queen for me, Disney, don’t. Your fairy tales are usually awesome. Let’s keep it that way!
