The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences today announced that 10 animated short films — out of a qualifying total of 56 — will advance in the voting process for the 86th Academy Awards. Among the shortlisted shorts are Get A Horse! from Walt Disney Animation Studios, which will play ahead of Frozen when it debuts in theaters on November 27, 2013.
Walt Disney Studios has provided us with this teaser poster for Studio Ghibli’s The Wind Rises which will debut in theaters with a limited release on February 21, 2014, followed by a wide release on February 28, 2014 under Disney’s Touchstone banner. In addition, the film will have a week-long award-qualifying run in Los Angeles and New York beginning this Friday, November 8 – 14, which will feature the film in its original Japanese language with subtitles.
Branded as the Disney Frozen ‘Final Shooting Draft’ written by Jennifer Lee and dated September 23, 2013, Walt Disney Studios has now made the script for Frozen available for download, complete with lyrics by Robert and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.
Although not publicly linked to on the Studio’s ‘For Your Consideration’ awards website (which is still under development for this year), it can be downloaded via its direct link. The script is intended to make voting members of the various bodies aware of it for as consideration for best screenplay awards.
Note: This is a review of the original motion picture soundtrack to Disney’s Frozen. Reviews for the film are under embargo until later this month.
On November 25, Walt Disney Records will release the original motion picture soundtrack to Disney’s Frozen in both single disc and 2-disc deluxe formats (available for pre-order via Amazon and iTunes), the latter of which features demos of songs that didn’t make it into to the film for various reasons (25 were written with just eight plus a reprise making the final cut). In addition to the songs written by the [married] songwriting team of Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the soundtrack features a score by Christophe Beck and orchestration and arrangements by Dave Metzger. With a pedigree such as this, it’s a natural expectation for the soundtrack to exceed, but frankly expectations are greatly exceeded in what can easily be seen as Disney’s best musical since Beauty and the Beast, and in some ways, even better.
