The Snow Queen

While Disney and Pixar were hoping to release a yet-to-be-titled dinosaur project on November 27th, 2013, it sounds like the project has been pushed back to make way for an old project at the House of Mouse that has new life. A film called Frozen has been slated for that release date, but the project is anything but new as it's actually the new title for the gestating adaptation Hans Christian Anderson's The Snow Queen which we haven't heard about since 2009. The project was said to be another rare return to hand-drawn animation for Disney, but Bleeding Cool says the film is likely going to be computer animated now. Read on!

The concept art teased above is clearly from the hand-drawn animation plans, but considering Tangled took a lot of Disney's signature animation style and simply computer animated it, this could very well be another project like that. It seems to be following the same trick to keep boys interested by given it the gender neutral title of Frozen. Of course, if the film turns out to be just as good as Tangled, then I'm all for the changes. No word on whether composer and songwriter Alan Menken, the man behind music for Disney's classics like The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast is still on board, but I hope so. As for that Pixar dinosaur film, hopefully it won't be delayed too long.

      Does Land of the Lost count? If so... then... no.

    I was worried about the switch to digital... until you reminded me of Tangled. Good call Ethan.

    We need more hand drawn features. There's nothing else to it. If we continue to go in this direction - when even Disney replaces their hand-drawn films with cg on a project that has been gestating since Walt was alive - then very soon the art form will die out in the minds of the American audience. We cannot let that happen.

    I liked the old title better, and I dearly wish it was still being hand-drawn. :[ But I'm glad the project's alive, all the same.
