Fresh Spring Releases
Thaw out with Frozen, The Nut Job, an epic Desolation of Smaug set or boogie with Baloo in The Jungle Book 2. by Mercedes Milligan
Frozen [Disney, $29.99]
Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee’s magical, musical, Academy Award-winning winter adventure has hit the right note with critics and audiences around the world, and now you’ll never have to “Let It Go!” In case you’ve been stranded on a desert island, Frozen centers on two royal sisters: free spirited idealist Anna (Kristen Bell) and her serious-minded sister, Elsa (Idina Menzel), whose se- cret powers to create ice and snow go haywire, sending her into the wilderness and dooming the kingdom to eternal winter. It’s up to Anna to find her (with help from mountain man Kristoff, his reindeer Sven and a talking snowman) and convince her to return and reverse the curse.
The DVD set includes some very cool (ha) bonus features: the Mickey Mouse short Get A Horse!, multi-language music videos for the end credit version of “Let It Go” (Demi Lovato’s English, Martina Stoessel’s Spanish & Italian, Marsha Milan’s Malaysian) and Frozen teaser trailer. The Blu-ray/ DVD combo ($44.99) is even chiller (ha!), adding on The Making of Frozen, D’frosted: Disney’s Journey from Hans Christian Andersen to Frozen and four deleted scenes with intros from Buck and Lee. It’s snow joke, you’d be a flake to miss out on this! (Ha … ha?) [Release date: March 18]
