Frozen

Disney's latest fairytale Frozen hits the big screen today, just in time for families to get together for Thanksgiving and head out to the movies. There's been plenty of praise for the non-Pixar film, and it might even be better than Disney's recent triumphs Wreck-It Ralph and Tangled. Whether the story lands for audiences or not, one thing can't be denied: the snowy animated landscapes of the film are some of the most beautiful we've ever seen. They're realistic, stunning and just perfect, mostly because of how the snow is animated. Now we have a featurette that dives into the making of these animated effects by the use of what is called a material point method for snow simulation. This one is for the hardcore nerds out there. Watch !

Here's the featurette on Disney's Frozen from Disney Animation (via SlashFilm):

Frozen, loosely based on Hans Christian Anderson's story "The Snow Queen," stars Broadway legend Idina Menzel as Elsa, a magical queen in self-imposed exile, and Kristen Bell as her sister Anna, who, along with a mountain man named Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and his reindeer Sven, travels into the icy wilderness to find her sister and bring her home. Bobby Lopez (of Book of Mormon, Winnie the Pooh) and his wife Kristen wrote the music for Frozen, as this is a return to the musical for Disney Animation. Tarzan and Surf's Up director Chris Buck co-directs with Jennifer Lee. Disney sends Frozen to theaters in 3D November 27th.

When speaking science and math ... slow down. LOL. I'm a character animator so I definitely appreciate all the technical work that goes into making everything else look so great.

Speak slower, dude. Or try switching to decaf.
