From Finals to Frozen

Oh, well..

So, for my english final we had to present how well our blogs were doing. My friend Anthony and I made a slideshow to present our blog, and we’d both like to thank all of our followers for giving us so many views.

We haven’t been doing much in English lately besides finishing up presenting, so I thought I’d talk about one of the newer Disney movies that have come out lately, specifically, Frozen.

For those of you who haven’t watched Frozen yet, you NEED TO GO WATCH IT RIGHT NOW. LIKE SERIOUSLY. THE BEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME.

Frozen was released on November 27th, 2013 and has grossed $810 million in the worldwide box office revenue. That’s a lot of money..

In 1943, Walt Disney and Samuel Goldwyn had been considering collaborating and shoot a live-action sequence film and produce a biography film of Hans Christian Andersen. The only problem? Walt Disney and his fellow animators encountered some difficulties with The Snow Queen because they couldn’t find a way to make the Snow Queen’s character more modern. The Snow Queen went on to be shelved with other movies.

In the 1990’s, Walt Disney Feature Animation started an adaptation of The Snow Queen but the idea was dropped in late 2002. The Snow Queen was shelved once again.

Then, in 2008, Chris Buck pitched his version of the adaptation to Disney, and it went under the name of Anna and the Snow Queen. In 2010, the project ran into problems, once again, by trying to find a way to make the Snow Queen yet again, more modern.

On December 22, 2011, after Tangled’s success, Disney came up with a new name for the film. Frozen.

Kristen Bell was the first to be cast, and soon after, Idina Menzel. Months later, Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad, and many other talented voice actors were cast. But have you wondered why all the characters have such amazing voices when they sing? Well, it’s because the people who voiced most of the characters have all been on Broadway. Impressive.
