Oh, wow! Shocker: they’re going to make Frozen 2!

Who could have guessed this would happen? – Well, yes, everybody. This is fairly obvious sarcasm that I am doing, yes?

In one of the biggest non-surprises of the decade, it was officially announced today that Frozen 2 is in the works at Walt Disney Animation Studios with the first film’s directors, Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, and producer Peter Del Vecho returning.


“We enjoyed making Frozen Fever so much and being back in that world with those characters,” said John Lasseter [Chief Creative Officer of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios].

I’m sure that the 1.2 billion in gross sales didn’t hurt, either… oh, what the heck. Frozen was a good flick. The kids will be happy. I should let the Mouse get to it.

The Frozen trailer.

I am not actually suggesting that you see this film; it is, bluntly, stupid.  It is stupid because clearly neither the writer(s) nor the director of the movie (plot: “Three people stuck on a snow lift for a week.  Also, wolves”) have kids.  If they had kids, then they would have probably purchased the Mighty Machines DVD “Winter Blast” by now – and so would know that there would be an entire team of snowplows and specialized machines out there all week putting the slopes back in order.

Yes, yes: no doubt they could have some convoluted reason to explain that away – if they thought of it.  Bets that they did?

‘Ted Williams’ frozen head for batting practice at cryogenics lab’

That’s the headline. I don’t know if it’s true – it’s what’s being alleged by the author of Frozen: My Journey into the World of Cryonics, Deception, and Death, who is apparently hiding out from the stone cold killers that gravitate to cryonics research like flies to rotten meat* – but by God, that’s a headline. Even the superficial lack of a verb there doesn’t detract from the impact.

*There may be sarcasm in that statement; there’s certainly a bad pun.
