Here is the very first sneak peek at Kristoff and Elsa from Disney’s Frozen, visiting the Once Upon a Time setting of Storybrooke for the new season.

As a comics fan it’s sometimes strange when news reaches not just into the wider geek community but also popular culture as a whole. I don’t usually expect larger news websites and broadcasts to report on who killed The Watcher or Carol Danvers’ decision to chill in space for a while. But that’s exactly what happened with Marvel’s latest announcement of introducing a female Thor. Since the reveal it’s been all...

After the Happy Ever After – Disney is Making an Enchanted Sequel
Seven years after Disney released its hugely popular, live-action fairytale film Enchanted, a sequel is now in the pipeline under the direction of Anne Fletcher (The Proposal, The Guilt Trip). Directed by Disney veteran Kevin Lima, the original Enchanted is a knowing, affectionately mocking look back at the company’s traditional princess fare, challenging the notion of love at first sight (or perhaps first song), and the easy happy ever afters... 

What Disney’s Frozen nearly looked like

What Disney’s Frozen nearly looked like
It is currently the fifth highest grossing movie of all time, it has inspired a new generation of wannabe princesses and made the phrase, “Let it go,” seemingly a part of the lexicon for children of all ages. However, the Frozen we all know had been in development for a long time and was even considered to be animated in the traditional hand drawn style that Disney is famous for. The origins of Frozen can be traced back to the 1940s when Walt...

The Lion Guard: Disney does a full ‘Circle of Life’ with new spin-off
A bit of nostalgia to get your claws into here. After 20 years of success on both film and theatre, the classic story of The Lion King is not one easily forgotten.

The Lion Guard will appear on screen in autumn 2015 in the form of a television movie. This will then...

Breaking the Curse – Maleficent Review
Back in January, just as Frozen‘s box office sales looked set to pass the billion dollar mark, MCM Buzz published an article musing over whether the film’s soaring success might encourage Disney to further explore the still relatively uncharted territory of central relationships between female characters. If this year’s summer blockbuster Maleficent is anything to judge by, it’s a prediction that has already come true, with...
