Five Year Plan of Frozen

Do you think Disney should Let it go or do you think this is the tip of the Frozen iceberg?

I am not nearly as enamoured with Frozen as the rest of the world seems to be. I'm more than happy to Let It Go, I preferred BRAVE.

They are not letting it go. It's a merchandising and film gold mine. They will ride this horse until it's dead, just like they did to HSM and Hannah. One thing Disney knows how to do is promote a hit.

I think it would be nice for a Frozen 2 (I'm the type that thinks after the movie, well what happens next?). That doesn't mean I would really like a sequel. The only thing I want from a sequel is the relationship between Kristoff, Sven and Anna. Other then that, what would be in the sequel? Merchandise doesn't bother me and I'm kind of thankful for the Summer Fun at Studios because now the meet and greet is a reasonable time for most of the day.

I loved the music. Time to get a stage show going somewhere.

I was a little bit lukewarm on the movie at first. There are a lot of plot holes and that's a hard thing for me to forgive, but I love the music so much. We're definitely more Tangled fans here, but I'm still having fun with Frozen and the soundtrack has been AWESOME for the gymnasts that I teach. I taught them the new dance sequences for their floor routine using the Frozen soundtrack--I've never had kids learn new routines so quickly! If it makes my job that much easier, I'm perfectly happy to keep Frozen around!!

I had a dream the other night that there was a Ftozen sequel, and it was HORRIBLE! eek I really enjoy the movie, but I agree that there are a number of annoying plot holes. I think continuing to sell merchandise, and maybe a stage show, would be adequate. Just because it's so popular now doesn't mean it will be in 10+ years, so I don't agree with all the other princesses and classic characters getting the shaft for Frozen.

I would like to see a Frozen show replace Beauty and the Beast at HS.
I'm not a big fan of movie sequels. They never seem to be as good.

They will milk frozen as much as they can.

Whether they should is another question.

I wasn't that impressed with Frozen (but then again that could be my age) and do not consider it up there with the greats like Lion King etc.

It is a good film but not a great one in my eyes.

I would hate to see Disney World over run with Frozen stuff. One or two things are fine but not in every park.

I'm not a Frozen fan. To each his (or her) own. I think Lion king or Aladdin were much better films. Maybe being a guy has some thing to do with it. Although I did enjoy Brave and Tangled.

I'm a children's pastor and I'm around a hundred kids 0-11 years old on a regular 2-3 times a week basis and they especially the girls are obsessed with it. so hearing the sing it over and over and over and did I mention over again may have something to do with it as well.

I see the "Let IT Go" song to be a horrible theme. For me it is about a girl who just froze the entire kingdom (a really bad thing) saying I don't care about anyone else I just did evil and it's OK.

so I struggle with that message. Once again it's just me. My DW loved it and sings the songs with the girls in class all the time.

We are head down to WDW for the umpteenth time in Sept. and I plan to avoid the Frozen stuff as much as possible.

All that said you can't blame the company for milking it for all it's worth thats just business.

Most have taken the song Let It Go as a song of female empowerment, not of embracing evil (although some would feel it's the same thing). And in the end it is the love of her family that makes her whole again. I don't see any negative messages.

I have to say I liked the film and was very jealous of the whole frozen thing at HS that I wont be able to get to because it finishes before we arrive but that was more the fact there would be more at HS for me to do.

I don't think its one of the best films in the world I love the late 80's/early 90's films more (little mermaid, BATB, lion king etc)

I would like to continue seeing frozen in the parks but I don't want it to take over (and really hope the rumours about Maelstrom are not true because I love the ride the way it is!)

on a side note pleeeeeeeeeeeeease let olaf's still be available when I get there I want at least 2 (not both for me!!!)

You missed some parts of the movie then, she did not know that she froze the Kingdom.

MrHub is right. Elsa had NO IDEA she froze the kingdom when she was singing "Let it go." She was actually singing about letting go of her low self esteem and self hatred that she had all of her life, because she was "different." Her whole life she was afraid of people finding out she was different and judging and condemning her for her differences.
"Let it go" actually encourages children to love themselves, have high self esteem and not to judge themselves based on what others think of them. It's a lesson that I hope every child can learn!

Moving back to the actual topic, I think Disney is in a somewhat of a Catch-22 situation. If they continue to milk Frozen, people will accuse Disney of selling out to the almighty dollar and in the theme parks, some may feel the Frozen presence and potentially ones in the near future, are there to solely counter Harry Potter at Universal given how much praise Universal has been getting in recent years and the frustration of some people who are frustrated with the actions or lack thereof from Disney World management. If they do squadoosh about it, then people will accuse of Disney of not investing enough in the product and not taking advantage of the large consumer market that is demanding Frozen.

Frozen has, in my book, become a victim of its success and the way I see it, no matter what Disney decides to do with Frozen going forward, a large portion is going to get upset and be extremely critical of every decision they make.

I have to agree with everyone else that Disney will, in all likelihood, milk Frozen for probably the next 3-5 years and then, some other new fad in Disney will takes it place. My best guess is that Moana in 2017 will take over and formally end the Frozen fad given that it's the next princess movie down the road. But you never know. The big four of the Renaissance movies did not receive attractions right away in the parks right after they came out.

Edit from original post: I found this video last night and basically, the Norway pavilion is in a tight pickle because the Norweigan government is not willing to pay to refurbish the pavilion but at the same time, Disney is adding elements of Frozen in the Norway pavilion, which some are worried about because it does not actually represent the actual country. The land of Arendelle was inspired by Norway, but it's not technically in Norway per say. Still, I read stuff online how on Frozen has boosted Norway tourism and many people are actually going to the actual country.

Anyway, here's the video from a Norwegian TV channel (English Subtitles are available on the menu bar if needed):

This may sound totally unrelated but I have just booked my FP for our holiday in September/October and every EPCOT day Maelstrom was not available so I'm guessing its going to be under refurb weather that means its having frozen added or not I'm not sure but the rumours have been going around for a while............just hope they are not true I love frozen but don't put it in maelstrom!

Disney has not been given permission to change Maelstrom to a Frozen theme and Norway isn't pleased with all the attention that Frozen has given the country. Disney hasn't officially announced how they are adding more Frozen to the parks.
