Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events.

Frozen Musical Poster By Olly Moss

It’s been almost four years since the animated film “Frozen” made it impossible to unhear  “Let It Go.” That’s music to the ears of the Disney Theatrical Group as it readies to open a new high-profile musical adaptation of the movie on Broadway next spring.

It was a tricky assignment for Andrew Flatt, Disney Theatrical’s senior vice president for  strategy, marketing and revenue. He knew the poster design couldn’t stray too far from depicting the “Frozen” — a sweetheart story of Princess Elsa and her frosty powers — that fans hold dear. He also knew he wanted a color palette that stuck with ice-cold hues of blue, white and silver.

To make sure the stage version (which begins performances in Denver this month) set itself apart from the film, Mr. Flatt said he wanted a poster to differentiate and elevate.

The final show art, from the advertising agency Serino Coyne, is an icy fantasia by Olly Moss, an artist based outside London. The poster features a giant, stylized snowflake with brushy tips that bursts across a sea of azures and indigos. Embedded in the fractal geometrics are silhouettes of a young woman reaching with a dramatically raised arm. For added wow, negative space forms two other likenesses that, as Mr. Flatt noted, people might not see right away.

The Lion King Walt Disney Signature Collection To Be Released On Digital August 15 & On Blu-ray August 29

It was announced today at D23 Expo that in August, one of the biggest animated films in history—“The Lion King”—joins the highly celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection. The coming-of-age masterpiece, filled with humor and heart, breathtaking animation and soul-stirring Academy Award–winning music (1994: Best Original Score and Best Original Song, “Can You Feel the Love Tonight”), arrives on Digital on August 15 and on Blu-ray and DVD on August 29.

Audiences will fall in love all over again with the treasured classic, and a new generation of fans will laugh with Timon and Pumbaa, cry with Simba and Mufasa, burst into song, and find their place in the “Circle of Life.” The Walt Disney Signature Collection release includes over three hours of classic bonus material and exclusive,  brand new features inviting viewers to sing along with the film’s award-winning music, observe recording sessions, step inside the story room, witness the evolution of a villain, and join Nathan Lane (voice of Timon) and Matthew Broderick (voice of Adult Simba) for an extended conversation regarding the legacy of “The Lion King.”

“The Lion King” follows the adventures of Simba, a feisty lion cub who cannot wait to be king, as he searches for his destiny in the great “Circle of Life.” The film earned a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture—Comedy or Musical and inspired a Tony Award-winning Broadway musical that is currently the third longest-running musical in Broadway history. In 2019, a reimagined live-action film, helmed by Jon Favreau, will delight audiences with the thrilling retelling of the original tale utilizing groundbreaking technological advances—as only Disney can do.

“The Lion King” is the fifth title to join the Walt Disney Signature Collection, which includes groundbreaking films created or inspired by the imagination and legacy of Walt Disney, featuring timeless stories and characters that have touched generations.

The Walt Disney Company has confirmed that a Guardians of the Galaxy attraction will be making its way to Epcot.

The Guardians of the Galaxy-inspired attraction will be added to Future World, adhering to the original vision of Epcot’s Future World as the place to experience the excitement and adventure offered by space travel.

Epcot’s brand new E-ticket attraction will be based on the rockin’ and action-packed world of Guardians of the Galaxy and is the next step in how guests can encounter these characters at the Walt Disney World Resort. This new attraction will replace the current Universe of Energy attraction, which will close August 13, 2017.

Second, a Disney Pixar’s Ratatouille-inspired attraction will also be added to the France Pavilion in World Showcase. The attraction will expand the pavilion. Similar to the 4-D attraction Ratatouille: The Adventure that opened at the Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris in 2014, guests will be able to shrink to Remy’s size and scurry to safety in a dazzling chase across a kitchen with the sights, sounds and smells of Gusteau’s legendary Parisian restaurant.

According to Disney leaders, both attractions will open in time for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort in 2021.
