Disney Confirms ‘Frozen’ Being Adapted for Stage but Won’t Say Broadway

'Frozen' Teaser PosterThe 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.

‘All Hail The King’ Marvel One Shot Stills (High-Res)

'All Hail The King' Marvel One Shot

As we first announced, one of the Blu-ray bonus features for Thor: The Dark World (available February 25) is a new Marvel One Shot titled All Hail the King. The short takes place after the events of Iron Man 3 in which Trevor Slattery is now an infamous icon. He’s also locked up in a high-security prison. Luckily, his newfound profile has brought him celebrity and protection on the inside — and the actor has gladly agreed to an in-depth profile with a documentary filmmaker. The short stars Sir Ben Kingsley — reprising his role — and Scoot McNairy.

‘Muppets Most Wanted’ Viral Ad is Totes Da Bomb

'Muppets Most Wanted' PosterWalt Disney Studios has just released this new viral ad on its YouTube page promoting Muppets Most Wanted, most likely the first of many parody ads if 2011′s The Muppetsmarketing is any indication.

Instead of taking shots at other films, however, this particular ad pokes fun at the burgeoning marketing method of using the tweets of ‘ordinary folk,’ not actually reviewing the film, but instead just simply voicing the intent of seeing the film. All of the tweets/accounts named in the ad do actually exist (see embedded below), but they are obviously not genuine and were all generated for the sake of making the ad, embedded below.

Amazon ‘Confirms’ ‘Frozen’ Blu-ray March 18 Release Date While Walmart Redacts

Disney 'Frozen' on Blu-rayDisney’s Frozen has been garnering accolades and attention for all sorts of reasons, most of which have been for quite positive ones, while others have been — well, confusing.

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.

‘Muppets Most Wanted’ to Feature Brand New Muppet? Plus Character Descriptions (Tiny Spoilers)

'Muppets Most Wanted' PosterWhen Disney produced The Muppets in 2011, it introduced a brand new character, Walter. Given Walter’s wide acceptance into the already established Muppet family — by both fans and Muppets alike, it only makes sense that the opportunity is seized in the sequel to introduce another new Muppet to the world (at least one, anyway).

The news comes to us by way of production notes for Muppets Most Wanted provided to us by Walt Disney Studios, who mentions her by name (or at all) just once and in a very manner-of-fact manner. Referring to sets that had to be built that would take all Muppet sizes into consideration, production designer Eve Stewart notes that Muppet sizes range from the seven-foot tall Sweetums to the two-foot tall Carmen. So there you have it, Carmen is two feet tall.
