thor woman

Geek fans love their mash ups and crossovers and I’m pretty sure we’ve seen a Thor/Disney princess mash up along the way, but it’s always magical when these kinds of things come true. In this case, Twitterer Daft Brian pointed out that Thor is now technically a Disney Princess thanks to the recent reveal from Marvel of a female Thor.

Hand drawn animation is no longer the way of things at Disney, but there is still quite a bit of concept art for Frozen that shows how the film might have looked had it come to fruition years ago. The adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s 1845 fairytale The Snow Queen was first contemplated back when Walt was still alive. It was finally attempted just before The Princess and The Frog, but the lackluster performance of that film put the nail in the coffin of hand drawn animation.

However, that doesn’t mean that hand drawn animation doesn’t happen in the course of a film’s development, like these beautiful pieces of concept art that were used to develop Frozen. You can see even more behind-the-scenes of Frozen in The Art of Frozen hardcover book.

Take a look at what could have been, after the break.

Duet

Glen Keane, an animator who worked on such Disney films as Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, and Beauty and the Beast, recently created a gorgeous short about two people falling in love. The art and animation of Duet is enchanting and straightforward. According to Time, the short was made for Google’s I/O event to promote mobile devices. Android will have an interactive version of the story in Duet later this year.

Watch the lovely short after the break.

disney mystery minis 1

Funko is making so many fun and cute products that I may as well just sign over my paychecks to them. I didn’t think they could top the Pop! series, but they’re killing it with the Mystery Minis. The latest round of the tiny blind box figures are ridiculous in the best way. There are 12 characters including Simba, Belle, the Beast, Wreck-It Ralph, and others. The petite scale means you can fit more of the figures on your shelf, so that means I can buy one of each, right? Right.

See a close-up of the figures after the break.

Westeros is not a happy place, but taking the characters from Game of Thrones and giving them the Disney treatment makes it all sweet and fun. We’ve already featured one batch of images by Fernando Mendonça putting the characters in a happy Disney place, and this time he’s given us two more pictures featuring Hodor and Cersei. He also got a little help from fellow illustrator Anderson Mahanski who takes on Daenerys and Drogon.

Here’s your first look at Big Hero 6, the upcoming animated feature that tells the story of Hiro Hamada and his robot Baymax which is set to be released in theaters on November 7th. The summary reads thusly:

Set in a fictional metropolis called San Fransokyo (a portmanteau of San Francisco and Tokyo), a young prodigy named Hiro Hamada and his self-created robot Baymax uncover a criminal plot and must join a team of inexperienced crime fighters including Wasabi-No-Ginger, Honey Lemon, GoGo Tomago, and Fred.

It’s based on a Marvel comic of the same name and will be the first animated Marvel movie from Disney.

See more pictures, including an image of the original comic, after the break.

It’s been reported that Disney intends to release a new Star Wars film every year and now a list published by StarWars-Union.de reveals that one of those films could be Red Five.

• 2014: Rebels

• 2015: Episode VII

• 2016: Boba Fett

• 2017: Episode VIII

• 2018: Solo

• 2019: Episode IX

• 2020: Red Five

They put the list together based on details from a Hasbro toy event which seems to corroborate reports of stand-alone Han Solo and Boba Fett films. Hasbro later asked them to take down the list, so take that for what it’s worth. Now, what do you think, would Red Five be about the Rogues or would it be about Luke?

You wouldn’t think you could turn the warm and fuzzy world of Frozen into a horror movie, but you’d be wrong. This video takes the scenes you know from the film, but splices them all together in a very disturbing way. Add in choice bits of dialogue and music fit for the latest slasher flick, and you have a version of Frozen that definitely is not safe for the kiddies.

See the video after the break…
