Sneak peek at the Mcdonald's Happy Meal toys:

Pretty cool, despite the lame gimmick ("launcher" type toys.) With it being so close to Christmas was hoping for ornaments. Well, I'll no doubt get a few. Olaf is a must!

Anna’s is hands-down the best! :). She just looks so courageous.

(Elsa’s ok but not very inspired. Just standing there with her hands at her sides? And that jacket certainly doesn’t do her any favors.:?)

Yeah, Anna's is nice. Nokk, the water horsie, also looks pretty impressive!

Not surprising, the sequel is already breaking records in advance ticket sales. Woo!

I don't know why industry articles think that's a GOOD thing...
It keeps sounding like the time Disney's flop Broadway musicals of Tarzan and Little Mermaid sold out tickets six months ahead on name value, and if it wasn't for that, the shows would have closed over the weekend.

Unless Disney's doing another Dick Tracy, and counting an entire month of presold tickets as "Opening weekend business". :roll:

Absolutely LOVE the first poster. Especially all the different shades of blue, (as you said, Dan) and all of their subtle gradations.

Second poster...meh. Extremely plain and unexciting. Plus weird to only see Anna and not Elsa. Much as I like Anna I always considered Elsa the main character...

Christmas ad for Iceland Foods:



Features original animation, too. Pretty cute.

This is playing ad nauseam here, though it’s my favourite of the UK Christmas ads so far. That they went to the lengths of having original animation is pretty cool, though it also smacks of how desperate Disney is to make sure this is a smash.

I'm getting very concerned that the songs will be very substandard. I could have sworn by now we had the movie version of Let It Go circulating on YouTube to pump us all up for the movie. But we've all got snippets of in movie songs. And then over the weekend we got Panic! At The Disco's version of Elsa's song. Which lyrically left me vey cold and bored.

You can’t capture lighting in a bottle, especially twice. And especially when it’s manufactured. You can fake it, but it won’t ever really be the same. It happens every now and then, but I fear the Olaf featurette may and up being a closer true follow-up in sprit than the actual sequel. That said, I await to see the film in full, still having not really seen or heard anything other than what’s been teased in trailers.

But remember that Let It Go didn’t become a phenomenon until after the movie was released and it picked up its fervent following...then the song became the zeitgeist by osmosis, since the more that was spoken about the movie, the more we heard Let It Go, and the more we heard Let It Go the more it became the zeitgeist...

I feel they are hoping for Into The Unknown to repeat Let It Go's success but really when the Chorus is just repeating the title over and over and over. Although I'm so out of touch with what is considered quality music these days I will probably regret this post come mid-December.
