Things We Saw Today: A New Poster For Disney’s Frozen

In the words of our own Rebecca, “Do we need to have an intervention about this snowman?” A new trailer for Frozen is supposed to premiere September 26th. Let’s hope it’s better than the last one

    Congratulations to Peter Jackson!

    And yeah, that Snow-Donkey-From-Shrek is a bit unnerving.

  • Stephanie Hull

    Surprised the article about Patrick Stewart not marrying the author’s mom was not written by Wesley Crusher.

    Man, you know, I was SO excited when I heard that Disney’s next movie was going to be based on “The Snow Queen.” It’s dark, atmospheric, and is a rare story all about a girl saving a boy, with an absolutely chilling villain (er… so to speak.) And then… the doofy anthropomorphic snowman? And she can’t save the boy, the boy has to also be a hero? I just… I don’t know, man. I don’t know.

    I mean, that goddamn snowman.

    My Jar-Jar sense is tingling.

    …DAMN that snowman.

    Frozen? I think you mean Tangled 2: The Secret of the Hair

  • White Rose Brian

    I still wish that dorky-looking snowman would blow his own head off in the actual movie.

    Speaking of Army of Darkness, Evil Dead: The Musical! is coming back to Toronto!! squee!

    “Frozen” is now so completely different from the original Snow Queen story that I’m not even considering them to be related. They have no characters in common and no plot elements, only the idea of a woman who controls snow and ice. There isn’t even the cursed mirror–instead she curses the land with eternal winter.

    So rather than freaking out about my favorite fairy tale being ruined, I’m planning on just enjoying it as an original story with a Nordic twist.

  • Robert Vary

    Fair enough. For me, though, I guess it’s really less about them ruining a favorite fairy tale and more about the missed opportunity that a more faithful adaptation presented. I mean, how awesome could that movie have been, right? It’s like they dangled the promise of something really cool in front of us, but it was just a bait-and-switch. It’s like we thought we were going to a five-star restaurant and were instead taken to a decent ribs joint.* It’s not that you won’t get a good dinner, it’s just not what we thought we were getting, and what we’re getting just seems a little more… ordinary. I guess this is disappointing more for what-could-have-been rather than what-is, if that makes any sense.

    Although, even taking the movie on its own merits and divorcing it from “The Snow Queen,” that goddamn snowman looks just… just AWFUL.

    *Yes, yes, in real life I’d probably rather go to the ribs place too. I’ve been to some FANTASTIC rib joints.

    There is already an interesting Russian animated version of the Snow Queen from the 1950s if you’re interested!
