What better way to encourage cinema-goers to see the forthcoming live-action 'Cinderella' movie, than the promise of more 'Frozen'? Disney announces short film 'Frozen Fever' to precede the film when it hits movie theaters on March 13th 2015.

'Frozen Fever' set to screen before 'Cinderella'

Hollywood is going fairytale mad this year, what with 'Frozen' becoming such an enormous worldwide hit and several adaptations making waves in the media such as 'Maleficent' and the forthcoming 'Into The Woods'. 'Cinderella', starring Lily James, Helena Bonham Carter and Cate Blanchett, is the next big thing for film folklore, but it seems people are still stuck on the Oscar winning animation featuring Anna, Elsa and friends.

What Makes 'Frozen' So Good? Review Round-Up Of Disney's Latest Hit


Kristen Bell Chris Buck Alan Tudyk Idina Menzel Josh Gad Disney

It looks like Disney have hit the jackpot once again, as their latest animation, the festive Frozen, is a hit with critics and looks as though it could be a hit in cinemas too. Starring Idina Menzel, Josh Gad and Kristen Bell and directed by Chris Buck, the film follows Anna, the future Queen of Arendelle, as she races against time to prevent her sister from unwittingly turning the kingdom into an eternally icy realm, meeting some new friends and learning some important lessons on the way.

Frozen
The film is being commended for its visuals

"This is an icy, snowy world that Disney has never done before," director Chris Buck insisted in a recent featurette for the movie. Stars Kristen Bell and Josh Gad both gushed over the extent of the visuals on offer, with producer Peter del Vecho adding, "We did draw a lot of inspiration from Norway, in fact we sent our art direction team to Norway as the jumping off point."

Frozen Trailer


Anna is set to be the fearless Queen of Arendelle, but when her sister Elsa starts suffering the effects of her powers to create snow and ice and manages to cloak the entire city with a bitter winter, Anna realises that it's up to her to deal with it. It's only July, but it's bound to be unseasonal for eternity unless Anna can find her sister - now known as the Snow Queen - and get her to break the spell. She sets out on a treacherous mission to look for her alongside her best friend Kristoff, an ice breaker (quite literally), and his super-friendly reindeer Sven. Along the way they meet the bumbling, nasally challenged snowman Olaf as well as several unwelcome mountain dwellers - but that's the least of their worries when it turns out that Anna's beloved sibling is being seen as a ruthless monster, which she knows, deep down, she isn't.

'Frozen' Sees Disney Doing What They Do Best In The Latest Fairytale Movie Adventure [Trailer And Pictures]

Olaf meets Sven in 'Frozen'Olaf meets Sven in 'Frozen'

'Frozen' is the new Disney animation based on a much-loved tale that is due to hit the UK this winter (most appropriately) starring Kristen Bell.

Fairytales are definitely becoming popular again with some of the world's favourites being transferred to stunning, high-energy and often grisly live action flicks, among them being 'Jack the Giant Slayer', 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters', 'Snow White and the Huntsman' and not to mention the TV series 'Once Upon a Time' which is now in its third season. However, Disney has brought the delight back to children and reverted to what they are known for with their (albeit vague) rendition of Hans Christian Andersen's 'The Snow Queen' in an animated adventure entitled 'Frozen'. Starring Kristen Bell, Josh Gad and Broadway sensation Idina Menzel, it tells the story of Anna's quest to undo her sister Elsa's power over the kingdom of Arendelle, which she has cursed into eternal winter, accompanied by her friend Kristoff, his reindeer Sven and a snowman called Olaf.

Frozen Trailer


Anna is a young girl determined to save the world as she sets out with her best friend Kristoff, a burly mountain dweller, and his friendly pet reindeer Sven on a mission to restore warmth to the kingdom of Arendelle. Her wicked sister, Elsa, also known as the Snow Queen, has cursed the realm to suffer a never-ending winter, forcing Anna and Kristoff to brave freezing conditions unlike any they've ever experienced as they set out to stop Elsa. But the bitter winds and endless snow fields become the least of their problems as they encounter creatures such as trolls along the way. They also meet the nasally challenged snowman Olaf, who joins them on their trip after becoming confusedly acquainted with Kristoff. Will Anna save the frosty kingdom? Or will Elsa's power prove much too strong?

Surf's Up Review


Bad
The passionate pursuit of the perfect wave once inspired Bruce Brown to film the quintessential surfing documentary The Endless Summer. A loving ode to the unheralded beach-bum community, Brown's rambling tour of our planet's surfing hot spots took audiences on a permanent vacation when it opened in 1966.

Forty years later, the art of mastering tubular waves has inspired Surf's Up, an animated fish-out-of-water story that opens in the summer (great) but feels endless (groan).

Surf's Up Trailer


Surf's Up is an animated comedy that delves behind the scenes of the high-octane world of competitive surfing. The film profiles teenage Rockhopper penguin Cody Maverick (Shia LaBeouf), an up-and-coming surfer, as he enters his first pro competition. Followed by a camera crew to document his experiences, Cody leaves his family and home in Shiverpool, Antarctica to travel to Pen Gu Island for the Big Z Memorial Surf Off.

Tarzan Review


Good
Every time someone makes a "Tarzan" movie, they take wild libertieswith Edgar Rice Burroughs' text.

Burroughs' Tarzan didn't live in a treehouse with an elephant-operatedelevator, but Johnny Weissmuller's Tarzan did in one his campy 1930s classics(if that's the word). Burroughs didn't imagine any Tarzan erotic adventures,either, but John Derek cast his wife Bo as a nude, sexpot Jane in 1981.

Disney's new and visually magnificent animated "Tarzan"takes different kinds of liberties -- the kind necessary to create a kid-friendlymovie (minimal violence; cute, wise-cracking sidekicks; et al). But withthe freedom allowed by the animation medium, in this movie Tarzan himselfmay be the most authentic vision of the character to date. This is a Tarzanunlimited by what human actors are capable of physically, and in termsof authenticity it makes all the difference in the world.

As envisioned by Burroughs and brought to life by leadanimator Glen Keane and directors Kevin Lima and Chris Buck he moves likean animal, low to the ground, resting on his under-turned knuckles. Heswings effortlessly from branch to branch like a gibbon, instead of likea stunt man looking for his next strategically-placed vine. He also surfsthe jungle tree trunks like a skateboarder, making copious use of the movie'scoolest effect -- a new computer animation technique called Deep Canvasthat gives the an astonishing, three-dimensional feel to the lush, livingjungle, which Tarzan kowabungas though at roller-coaster speeds.
