92nd Academy Awards Nominations Announced!

The 92nd Academy Award nominations have been announced and I will release my predictions sometime in the upcoming weeks. Until then, here are the animation-related nominees:

BEST ANIMATED FEATURE FILM:
How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
I Lost My Body
Klaus
Missing Link
Toy Story 4

BEST ANIMATED SHORT FILM:
Dcera (Daughter)
Hair Love
Kitbull
Memorable
Sister

Also both Toy Story 4 and Frozen II have been nominated for Best Original Song for I Can’t Let You Throw Yourself Away and Into the Unknown, respectively.

The biggest thing that stands out from these nominees is the fact that Frozen II wasn’t nominated for Best Animated Feature and honestly, while I’m surprised by that, I’m also happy that it wasn’t.

What do you think of the nominees? Let me know in the comments below!

‘Frozen II’ Teaser Trailer Debuts!

We finally get our first teaser trailer for Disney’s upcoming animated sequel, Frozen II! What do you think of this trailer?

I personally am loving what I’m seeing! The overall look of the film is quite distinct and I’m loving the stunning animation! I mean, those waves and cliffs look so real! I also liked the bit of the song that we heard near the end!

The characters seem to be going on a journey, but I wonder what the journey will be. Any ideas?

I still don’t want them to give Elsa a girlfriend in this film; I’d rather her remain single.

Frozen II will hit theaters in the U.S. on November 22, 2019!

‘Frozen 2’ Gets 2019 Release Date + Other Animated Film News!

Disney has just announced that their upcoming animated film, Frozen 2, will be released to theaters on November 27, 2019! Also Wreck-It Ralph 2 has been pushed back to November 21, 2018 and Gigantic has been pushed back to November 25, 2020.

Are you all looking forward to a Frozen sequel? How do you feel about the other films being pushed back? I’m actually quite sad that Gigantic won’t come out until 2020!

‘Frozen 2’ Confirmed!

In what comes as no surprise to anyone, Disney has officially announced that they’re developing a sequel to their billion-dollar film, Frozen. The original team is set to develop the sequel. For more information, check out the Variety article here.

I personally am not excited about this. I feel Frozen should remain its own movie and not have a sequel, much less a sequel in the official Canon. But, the original movie was a huge success, so there’s no reason why this film will become a flop for Disney.

Are you all excited for this? Let me know in the comments below!
