Weekly Disney Roundup: June 17, 2012

Some of the animatronics from the new Radiator Springs Racers ride at the just-opened Cars Land at Disneyland! These are really, really impressive.

Some news on Frozen! Idina Menzel is signed on as the snow queen, and Kristen Bell has been cast as Anna. Robert Lopez and his wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez are going to be doing the music. The plot also looks quite a bit different from the original story:
"In ‘Frozen,’ a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, so Anna (voice of Bell) must team up with Kristoff, a daring mountain man, on the grandest of journeys to find the Snow Queen (voice of Menzel) and put an end to the icy spell. Encountering Everest-like extremes, mystical creatures and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction."
No word yet on who's playing Kristoff, but we'll keep you updated! (Source)

Now you can try your hand at an actual version of the Wreck-It Ralph video game! It's pretty addicting. Try it out here!

These are so cool. They're called Glow with the Show Ears, and the ear parts light up with colors, and they sync up with the display at World of Color in Disneyland. More info here.


  1. I've been on the Racers ride in Cars Land, and I absolutely loved it. I had thought to myself before going on, "Pff, it's just going to be another Autotopia." But OH MY GOSH I was sooo wrong. It truly is amazing!

    1. I'm so jealous! It looks really cool, I'm glad to hear that it's awesome in real life too :D
