I'm actually a little surprised we didn't get this soon. Still, I'm excited. I guess we won't be getting any more Toy Story specials now that Frozen is here.

This could be a lot of fun so I hope it's done well.

I really don't understand people getting upset about things like this because they always do it with their big hits. Off the top of my head The Lion King had:

The Lion King
The Lion King II: Simba's Pride
The Lion King 1½
85 episodes of the Timon and Pumbaa animated series
Character cameos in other Disney television series like House of Mouse
The Legend of the Lion King puppet stage show in Magic Kingdom
Festival of the Lion King live musical show in Animal Kingdom/Hong Kong Disneyland
Rafiki's Planet Watch in Animal Kingdom
Circle of Life: An Environmental Fable in EPCOT
The Lion King Celebration parade in Disneyland
The Lion King musical on Broadway

Most of these came out within 5 years of the initial release, and I'm sure there was more I'm forgetting.

The problem is that while TLK was a massive hit, Disney still gave attention to the other movies (minus Rescuers, which was going to have a TV show until Bianca's actress died).

Quote:
B&TB:

3 sequels
A TV series
Video games
A show at Disney World
A Broadway show

ALADDIN:
A TV Series
2 sequels
Video games
A Broadway show

POCAHONTAS:
A sequel
A show at Disney World

Not as much as the others b/c of the backlash, but still

HUNCHBACK:
A sequel
A show at WDW
A cancelled Broadway show

Again, not as much

HERCULES
A TV show
A TV show prequel
A cancelled sequel
Lots of video games
Disney Cruise show

MULAN:
A sequel
Cancelled TV show and third movie

TARZAN
A TV show
2 sequels/prequels
Broadway musical
Stuff at the Disney Parks


Meanwhile for this era of movies, minus Disney Infinity

Quote:
Princess & the Frog:
………………….

Wreck-It Ralph:

Rumored sequel

A tiny area at Disney Quest

The Disney Cruise snack shack

And that's it.

Big Hero 6 (Academy Award winner & 600 million dollars):

………………….

Tangled:

An upcoming TV show

A short

Disney Park shows

A wasted episode on OUAT



They're dedicating all their time to Frozen that they're delieberary ignoring all of the other great Disney movies, minus Tangled.

I know that they are using Frozen too much, but I think the film is very suitable for a Christmas special. I actually prefer this to the planned sequel. And I'm glad to know that Kevin Deters and Stevie Wermers-Skelton are going to direct it. I like everything they've done so far. I would've prefered they made a third Prep & Landing special instead of this though, but I'm glad they've been given a new project to work on.

well they need something to keep the movie in the publics mind while the sequel's being made. 2019 is a long way off.

I don't agree with the impression that they're using Frozen too much. The movie came out in 2013, the short came out last year or the year before with Cinderella (2015), and this is coming out in 2017, the Broadway musical in 2018, and the first sequel in 2019. Everything that actually matters has been pretty spread out; not a big deal to me. I mean, what did anyone actually expect to happen with a movie that made more than a billion dollars? :lol:

Well, all of those recent films also had individual video games (not Disney Infinity), though they're mostly terrible :lol:

There was also Tiana's Showboat Jubilee! in the parks but it didn't last long obviously. Big Hero 6 and Wreck-It Ralph have a lot of possibilities for parks attractions and even tv series so I agree they could have done something there (obviously they're not getting stage/Broadway shows though).

And I doubt anyone wants Disney to start churning out cheap direct to video sequels again.

also I think the reason we've seen less done with the "boy" films is b/c they now have Marvel and Star Wars and rather focus on those for boys franchises. I think if they hadnt had those we'd be seeing more stuff being done with BH6 & WIR.

Remembering that the Lion King and Beauty and the Beast Broadway musicals reached the stage only three years after the movies were released, I'm kind of surprised the Frozen musical isn't hitting Broadway until five years later. Although the Lopezes have been really hard at work on it over the past couple of years, so they're definitely not slouching.

Yes, that is definitely one of the reasons, and it's a shame. Big Hero 6, for example, would be perfect for a TV series.

You wouldn't see any BH6 if Disney didn't have Marvel. BH6 is a marvel property.

Most likely due to because Disney, I believe, only own two of the Broadway theater houses. One is occupied for Lion King which been going for more the 15 years, and the other is recent Aladdin. Usually when they add a new Disney Broadway production, they take out the newest one before (tarzan, Little Mermaid, Mary poppins). Aladdin just recently been in broadway now and is a huge success. I doubt Disney want cancel it so soon just add Frozen. Most likely they're giving Aladdin bit of time on broadway before adding Frozen to take over.

You're right! I didn't take that into account when I wrote my comment. But still, Disney prefers using the other more famous Marvel properties to Big Hero 6.

Personally I think both Aladdin and The Lion King were quite milked during their heydays, more than Pocahontas and Hunchback. Aladdin had a sequel and an entire show which were released two years afterwards (and a third finale). At least The Lion King had the Timon and Pumbaa show which was released a year afterwards, but it's sequel (as well as those for Pocahontas and Hunchback) were released several years afterwards.

Due to their serious nature, it's not strange that both Pocahontas and Hunchback never had so much follow-up shorts or series besides their sequels. And personally, I wouldn't mind this to happen. I would've liked a series about Pocahontas which was akin to The Little Mermaid-series; showing her life before the settlers coming up (I know I've probably said this before, but forgive me :P). I wouldn't mind to see shorts or a series about Hunchback, but that would've been harder due to it's source material (but at least something more compelling than a circus devise).

As for the Timon and Pumbaa series, though I liked it, it was stylistically a departure from it's naturalistic predecessor. The series had almost a Ren & Stimpy-style to it and Timon and Pumbaa were perhaps too anthropomorphed at times.

But it's not strange that Frozen gets a Holliday special, due to it's snowy setting (duuuh). I was waiting for it to happen :P

The TV special is going to be Olaf-centric. Is anyone surprised? :lol:

Well, at least Frozen Fever could take credit for not being Olaf-centric, though it shouldn't come as a surprise that this one will be.
