Based on a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale and coming from the same people who brought you Tangled and a bunch of other classic princess stories, Frozen ought to be a gorgeously animated heartfelt holiday-season musical with enough depth that adults can enjoy it.

Mary Poppins 50th Anniversary Blu-ray Will Sing Onto Shelves In December
While the latest edition will be available on DVD, Disney is really pushing the HD Digital and Blu-ray copies of the film, and with good reason.
