Queen Elsa Gets Love Interest in Upcoming ‘Frozen’ Title


'Anna & Elsa 7: The Secret Admirer'Although we’ve known the title for a while, Random House released the cover art earlier today for the upcoming Frozen chapter book, Anna & Elsa #7: The Secret Admirer (on sale January 5, 2016, now available for pre-order), which we shared this morning on our social media channels.

While we have no synopsis for the title, it seems clear from the cover that Elsa is on the receiving end of some affection from the titular secret admirer. Who the secret admirer is and whether the admiration is requited remains to be seen, but our followers have some strong ideas on both Twitter and Tumblr where the image has gone viral.

‘Frozen’ Musical for California Adventure to be Workshopped in December; Opens Spring 2016

FrozenAccording to a newly published casting call, Disney Creative Entertainment’s production of the staged musical adaptation of Frozen will be workshopped in Anaheim between November 30 and December 19, 2015 with the initial casting session to take place in New York City on October 16.

The recently-announced production will replace ‘Aladdin’ which will end its 13 year run on January 10, 2016 and it appears DCE — a branch of Walt Disney Imagineering — is looking to replace the current production — often considered Broadway-caliber fare — with a well-pedigreed production worthy of taking its place. According to the casting notice, Liesl Tommy is set to direct (Tommy just came off an off-Broadway production titled ‘Eclipse’ starring Lupita Nyong’o) and Millicent Johnnie is set to choreograph.
