Frozen Heats Up

Frozen

If you haven’t heard of Frozen, you have probably not been outside lately. Frozen is the biggest block buster since… Well, it’s huge. You’re probably singing “Let It Go” because the song is everywhere.

Disney’s Frozen underwent several story treatments for years, before being commissioned in 2011. The screenplay was written by Jennifer Lee, and both Chris Buck and Lee serving as directors. Frozen features the voices of Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad, and Santino Fontana. Christophe Beck was hired to compose the film’s orchestral score, while husband-and-wife songwriting team Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez penned the songs.

Once again, this is one of my favorite movies. Did you notice the girl from Tangled? Disney places characters from other films into new films. You need to pay attention, but you’ll be able to find them yourself.

Its All Started from a Mouse

Mickey MouseDo you know who Mickey Mouse Is?

Mickey Mouse is the most popular character from anyone’s’ childhood.  It’s the reason Disney exists.  In fact, if it wasn’t for Mickey Mouse, would you never know who Walt Disney was?

Mickey Mouse was created by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks at the Walt Disney Studios in 1928.  For almost 100 years, Mickey has been in our lives.  I think it’s because we can relate to him.  He faces challenges and wins over them.  He’s our little hero.

This character cannot be separated from Disney.  Neither can Disney be separated from Mickey Mouse.  They are one and the same.  This is what makes this relationship so special.  Disney has to have the best interest of Mickey Mouse in mind.

It like the old saying… What would Mickey do?  Well, it might not be a saying, but it should be at Disney.  The Disney Company cannot separate themselves from this childhood figure.  They have to keep in mind how people see Disney and Mickey Mouse.
