No news on a Who Framed Roger Rabbit sequel today, but we did learn that Walt Disney Home Entertainment has finally set a date for the 25th anniversary release of the classic groundbreaking film, making it available for the first time ever on Blu-ray on March 12, 2013.
Courtesy of Walt Disney Studios UK, today we get our first look at newly released concept art from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ upcoming film, Frozen, featuring Anna and Kristoff.
When a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, Anna (Kristen Bell), a fearless optimist, teams up with extreme mountain man Kristoff and his sidekick reindeer, Sven, on an epic journey to find Anna’s sister Elsa, the Snow Queen (Idina Menzel), and put an end to her icy spell. Encountering mystical trolls, a funny snowman named Olaf, Everest-like extremes and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.
