Weekly Disney Roundup: January 7, 2012

And we're back! I hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday season. Here's your roundup for the past few weeks:

The live action Maleficent movie finally has a director! It's Robert Stromberg, who did the production design on Avatar. This is apparently his first time directing, so we'll see how that goes. More info here.

Here's a sneak preview clip for Tangled Ever After! I love the way Rapunzel's long veil mimics her previously giant hair. If you want to see the full short it will be playing in front of the re-release of Beauty and the Beast, which is in theaters January 13.

So there's good news and bad news as far as Disney's long in the works Snow Queen movie. The good news is that it's still happening! The bad news is that they've renamed it Frozen, continuing the ridiculous trend of avoiding feminine words in titles for no good reason. And it seems that the movie will also be done in 3D animation rather than the originally planned 2D. More info about it here.

Disney also recently announced their One More Disney Day campaign. All of the Disney parks are going to be open 24 hours on February 29 in honor of leap day! I think it'll probably be packed and really tiring, but probably worth it to be in the parks for literally an entire day. The website is here!
