Before the film opened, there were grumblings about how far Disney's creative team had strayed from the inspiration for their latest Disney princess feature. In Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen," the titular frosty royal was a villain. So how did Frozen's Queen Elsa turn out to be a hero? It's actually a touching story.

Pixar Will Only Make A Musical If This Happens
Disney's Frozen has surpassed Pixar's Toy Story 3 to claim the honor of highest grossing animated film of all time. But even though the animated musical has left all of Pixar's heralded features in the dust in the race to box office supremacy, that doesn't mean the animation studio is in a rush to imitate. While there could be a musical in Pixar's future, it won't come from a desire to ride Frozen's coattails.

Ben Affleck's Son Doesn’t Want To Hear The Batman Voice, He Only Wants To Hear This
If Ben Affleck were my dad, I would be pretty damn stoked that he is playing Batman in Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. After all, we're not only talking about one of the most legendary superheroes of all time, but one of the greatest, most badass fictional characters ever made. I'm sure that there are many fans out there who would agree with me 100% on this, but Ben Affleck's real two-year-old son is not among them.

Captain America 2, Maleficent, And Frozen Drive Disney To Its Best Quarter Ever
Some studios are trying to make great movies, trying to make profit, trying to make hits. But right now, Disney is acting completely gangsta. They've got their Disney animated fare, and completely unrelated Pixar movies. They've got Marvel completely crushing things, and they've got a savagely bombastic live-action branch of films for families.
