Japanese Posters for “Frozen 2”

Check out these great character posters made for Japan for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ upcoming feature Frozen 2.

All images ©️ Disney

Anna (and I have no idea what the rest of the poster says other than probably the Japanese translation of “Frozen 2”)
Elsa (or whatever her name is in Japanese)
Sven and Kristof
Olaf
Bruni

Frozen 2 opens in theaters on November 22 (same day as in Japan).

Poster and Trailer for Disney’s “Jungle Cruise”

Instead of an animated remake next summer, Disney is giving us a movie based on one of their theme park rides. Check out the new trailer and poster for Disney’s Jungle Cruise.

While films based on Disney theme park attractions have been somewhat hit or miss (Eddie Murphy’s horrible Haunted Mansion movie and that weird Country Bears film come to mind, not to mention how the Pirates of the Caribbean films overstayed their welcome), this one looks like it could be a lot of fun. Let’s hope so!

Jungle Cruise opens in theaters July 24, 2020.

New Trailer and Poster for Pixar’s “Onward”

I am drowning my sorrows from the Los Angeles Dodgers’ NLDS loss last night with this fun new trailer and poster for Pixar’s next animated feature Onward.

And check out this fun trailer reaction video with the film’s stars Chris Pratt and Tom Holland.

And here’s the new poster art.

This movie looks weird, wild, and wonderful. Can’t wait to see it.

Onward opens in theaters on March 6, 2020.

Get Ready for “Frozen 2”

Some serious marketing started today for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 58th animated motion picture Frozen 2. A new poster along with a new “special look” video have been plastered all over social media.

The new poster is spiffy.

And this “special look” video includes some of the new song “Into the Unknown” written by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez and sung by the voice of Elsa herself, Idina Menzel.

Frozen 2 opens in theaters November 22.
