I'm becoming one of those type of parents. You know what I'm talking about. When their kid does something, they want to show everyone. That is what is happening right now. My 2-year-old was caught on video singing a song and I (being the non-objective parent) think it's great.
I like to wear Batman t-shirts. When I do, my wife kindly reminds me that I'm not cool enough to pull off being Batman. I wonder if anyone has said similar things to a lady who put on an Elsa costume and changed the words of the Frozen movie theme song into an Idaho weather tribute?
You had to know that when Frozen became the seventh highest grossing movie in history (its $1.27 billion is more than Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones and Casino Royale combined) that Disney was going to turn it into a ride, if not a whole section of rides at one of (if not all of) their amusement parks. They’d already announced the plans for a Frozen attraction at Epcot, and today, via The Wall Street Journal, the revealed a lot of the details about it. It’s called Frozen Ever After and it opens next year.
The news out of Disney’s shareholder meeting keeps on coming. This one isn’t much of a surprise: Disney is making Frozen 2. In a related story, the sky is blue and water is wet (until a princess with freezing powers comes along and turns it into ice).
If the prospect of a new live-action version of Cinderella wasn’t enticing enough, the new Disney film is opening with a special added attraction: “Frozen Fever,” a short sequel to Frozen, the most popular movie (and most dastardly earworm) of 2013. And here I thought “Frozen fever” was a mental illness that made kids sing “Let It Go” over and over again until their parents begged for the sweet release of death. My mistake.
