Potentially adding insult to injury — after confirming no foreseeable plans for a 3D Blu-ray domestic release — it turns out that the total length of the bonus features for the March 18, 2014 Blu-ray release of Frozen (pre-order) sum up to less than 40 minutes — and that includes four music videos.
Frozen audiences are invited to join the act — literally — as more than 1,000 theaters nationwide introduce an all-new sing-along version of Disney’s Oscar®-nominated, Golden Globe®-winning big-screen adventure beginning Jan. 31, 2014.
‘Frozen fans have embraced the film’s original songs and its soundtrack with such passion — there are countless YouTube videos from people singing songs like “Let It Go” — we decided to create a version that would celebrate that enthusiasm,’ said Dave Hollis, executive vice president, theatrical distribution, The Walt Disney Studios. ‘It’s a great opportunity for families to get together and have some fun with these songs.’
With Oscar nominations for Best Song under its belt, adding to the worldwide phenomenon that it’s already become, Walt Disney Studios has released the full ‘Let It Go’ sequence from Disney’s Frozen in twenty-five different languages. Presented in order, the languages are: English, French, German, Dutch, Mandarin, Swedish, Japanese, Latin American Spanish, Polish, Hungarian, Castilian Spanish, Catalan, Italian, Korean, Serbian, Cantonese, Portuguese, Bahasa Malaysia, Russian, Danish, Bulgarian, Norwegian, Thai, Canadian French and Flemish.

Serving as part of Walt Disney Animation Studio’s research, particularly for the lighting, of Disney’s Frozen, Quebec City’s famed Hôtel de Glace — or Ice Hotel — has revealed the first look at its exclusive, limited Frozen-inspired suite.
Created entirely out of sculpted ice and snow and supervised by the film’s art director Michael Giaimo, the Frozen Suite is modeled after Anna & Elsa’s bedrooms. The collaboration will also include a ‘Frozen Activity Cave’ bringing the wonder of Disney’s wintry tale to life like never before. The suite will be open this weekend and remain open through March 23.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences named its nominees for the upcoming 86th Academy Awards, which will air in the United States on ABC on Sunday, March 2, 2014. While Saving Mr. Banks was snubbed from most of the main categories, it managed to garner a nomination for Best Original Score by Thomas Newman. But it was Walt Disney Animation Studios that shined this year, for two unsurprising nominations for Frozen: ‘Let It Go’ for Best Original Song (Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez) and Best Animated Feature where it will compete against Disney’s other contender, Studio Ghibli’s The Wind Rises.
In the next (and perhaps final) turn in a maze of confusion surrounding a 3D Blu-ray release of Disney’s Frozen, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has independently confirmed to us that there are no announced plans for a 3D release at this time, reminding us that Frozen will be available on Digital 3D on February 25, as per the initial announcement.
The Golden Globes that Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen took home last night for Best Animated Feature was still warm when news that Disney Theatrical was prepping to head to the Broadway stage by way of Fortune.com. The article, which spoke of the film’s momentum, does use the term ‘Broadway’ twice (once in the headline), but never directly attributes it to Bob Iger, the CEO and Chairman of The Walt Disney Company.
After confirming the release of Disney’s Frozen on March 18, 2014, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has now released the list of bonus features that can be found on the Blu-ray edition of the film. You can find additional information below. Frozen is currently available for pre-order from Amazon or from Disney Store, which includes a set of exclusive lithographs. As we also shared earlier, Walmart (who is expected to offer the 3D edition exclusively, but has not yet re-listed it, will be offering an exclusive version coupled with either an Anna or Elsa ‘Disney Infinity’ figure). An HD digital edition of the film will be made available earlier, on February 25.
Take the case of the hotly anticipated home video release of Frozen. Amazon was first to begin accepting pre-orders — even while the film was just debuting in theaters — but this, in essence, has become the norm for Amazon. It’s a given that the product will be released on Blu-ray eventually, so why not accept pre-orders? Only Amazon had also been taking pre-orders for a 3D version of the Blu-ray, one it had to subsequently remove and unceremoniously cancel all orders.
Much as it did with the Blu-ray release of Monsters University, bundling either a Mike Wazowski or Randall Boggs ‘Disney Infinity’ figure along with the 2D version of the film, Walmart has announced it will do the same with Frozen when it releases on March 18, 2014. Although no image is currently available (see the Monsters University items as a sample), separate listings for pre-orders have been put up for both Anna and Elsa.
