Trailer Watch: “First look” at Disney’s Frozen

A “first look” trailer for Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee’s Frozen is online. While the 53rd Disney animated feature is loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen, this has no discernable connection to the tale, playing a bit like a Scrat short about a snowman (which, in turn, played sort of like a Looney Tunes cartoon).

Still, it’s fun, and the animation is lovely. The full film stars Kristen Bell as “Anna,” the lead, and Idina Menzel as the Snow Queen. It hits theaters this Thanksgiving (or that weekend, anyway), on November 27, 2013.

Trailer Watch: Chris Miller and Phil Lord’s The Lego Movie

From the directors of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street, and Clone High comes… The Lego Movie.

Chris Pratt plays Emmet, an ordinary dude mistakenly chosen to go on an epic adventure to stop President Business (Will Ferrell) from taking over the world, or something like that. Liam Neeson plays President Business’s henchman Bad Cop, who’s hot on his trail. Hey, and Superman is in it.

The Lego Movie also stars the voices of Morgan Freeman (which you already know if you saw the trailer), Alison Brie, Elizabeth Banks, Nick Offerman, and Will Arnett.

“Paperman” by John Kahrs

Paperman played in front of Wreck-It Ralph‘s theatrical run, and it was absolutely wonderful. (Your mileage may vary, but if you appreciate a little magical realism, you’ll probably dig it.) The music by Christophe Beck is lovely, the sort of hybrid 2D/CGI animation technique is lovely… It’s just a lovely short film. If you haven’t seen it, enjoy. If you have, I’m sure you’ll enjoy seeing it again.

Trailer Watch: Wreck-It Ralph theatrical trailer

This is a few days old, but grad school has me off my blogging game, so… whatever. Anyway.

The Wreck-It Ralph teaser sold me on this already, but for those of you who aren’t so sure yet, this new theatrical trailer gives us a closer look at the story (and the cameos!) in the Disney CGI feature.

Veteran Simpsons and Futurama director Rich Moore’s Wreck-It Ralph will wreck the box office on November 2, 2012. John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, and Jane Lynch top-line the film, with Alan Tudyk, Mindy Kaling, Adam Carolla, Horatio Sanz and more rounding out the cast.
