Sometimes great artistry comes from coloring inside the lines.
Walt Disney Animation's newest film, 'Frozen,' does precious little to push the boundaries of narrative storytelling. Indeed, it is a quite predictable – might I even suggest formulaic - culmination of elements. While picking over the bones of a half-remembered Hans Christian Andersen story, 'The Snow Queen,' Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck's film expands certain themes, disposes of some characters and, of course, modernizes a bit for contemporary audiences. However, miraculously, this doesn't feel like a Xerox of a Xerox impersonating a classic Disney film. There's precious little winking; hardly any of the 'Shrek'-effect. 'Frozen' has enough of the goods to play it straight and succeed on its own terms. It is a major entry in family-friendly entertainment, one that ought to reverberate for years with tie-in toys and stage productions.
It's been months in the making (try six years, at that), but finally the 'Veronica Mars' movie is starting to look like a complete picture. Following the brief behind-the-scenes snippets from Comic-Con 2013, marshmallow fans of the Kristen Bell detective drama have a new sneak peek to obsess over, complete with plenty of new plot details and footage from the big 'Veronica Mars' reunion in spring 2014.
Fans of 'Veronica Mars' and supporters of their Kickstarter to fund the upcoming film were treated to quite the presentation at last night's panel at Comic-Con 2013. Creator Rob Thomas presented the ultimate thank you in the form of a new video featuring behind the scenes footage and the very first teaser trailer.
All eyes are certainly on Kristen Bell because of the upcoming kickstarted feature film adaptation of 'Veronica Mars,' which is currently in production in California, but it seems the 'House of Lies' star had one major secret to keep under wraps: Bell will move from Neptune to Pawnee rival Eagleton, as she'll be guesting in 'Parks and Recreation' season 6!
Disney decided to play it coy with the first trailer for 'Frozen,' foregoing a look at the movie's story in favor of a brief comedic interlude starring a reindeer and a magic snowman. The good news is that we finally have some new footage. The bad news? You'll need to know Japanese to really understand what's happening.
Disney's first 'Frozen' trailer has been released to help all of us beat the heat this summer. Though the film isn't scheduled to arrive in theaters until November, you can get a quick look at the studio's 53rd animated feature.
We've been doing our best to keep up with the 'Veronica Mars' movie, which so far as we know has yet to actually enter production, but certainly won't be doing so without some of its most recognizable stars. The latest to sign on for the fan-funded feature is that of fan-favorite Tina Majorino's hacker extraordinaire, Cindy “Mac” Mackenzie, along with a host of familiar faces.
Ever since the 'Veronica Mars' kickstarter soared passed its $2 Million goal within hours of launching, the film became a fait accompli. Which made it unlikely that creator/writer/director Rob Thomas didn't already have plans for Kristen Bell and the rest of the cast. Now he's revealed some of the details of the upcoming movie.
Truly, the golden age for cancelled TV is upon us. Whereas a short time from now will see the long-awaited release of new 'Arrested Development' episodes on Netflix, it seems 'Veronica Mars' will soon return from the dead with an official movie as well! No mere pipe dream, Kristen Bell, creator Rob Thomas and the cast have opened up the 'Veronica Mars' movie with an official Kickstarter campaign to raise funds, shooting the film this summer! Find out how you can contribute to the 'Veronica Mars' movie inside!
