Work continues on Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs Coaster

Wandering Oaken

There’s signs of new Disney magic being built at Hong Kong Disneyland. Even though the theme park is still temporarily closed, the work continues on the upcoming Frozen themed roller coaster attraction, Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs.

The attraction is inspired by Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post and Sauna shown in the 2013 Frozen movie. The ride is scheduled to debut in 2021 at Hong Kong Disneyland. The Twitter account, HKDL of Fantasy, provided photos of the current progress on the attraction’s construction.

For those who visit Magic Kingdom, the Hong Kong ride will be similar in comparison to the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. The concept artwork for Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs show us additional insight on what to expect when attraction is complete. So far, seeing the tracks being installed does offer excitement for Disney fans. But we are eager to see more of the construction progress to learn what else is in store for future riders!

Are any of our fans exciting about the upcoming roller coaster attraction? Will you be planning a trip to Hong Kong Disneyland in the future so you could ride Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs? We will post updates when additional information becomes available.

Bring Frozen 2 To Your Home In Style With Disney Bounding

Now that we have all been at home for quite some time, we’re sure you are watching a lot of Frozen 2 on Disney Plus. Don’t worry, so are we! Thanks to the Disney Bounding fashionista herself, Leslie Kay, we have an all new reason to watch. Leslie’s carefully created three super cool looks for Frozen 2 fans just like us!

Disney Bounding is where Disney meets fashion and magic happens! Any one can do it and it allows us to be as creative as possible. Disney Bounding at home, however, adds another essential element: comfort-ability. Besides, the comfort will help as you’re singing along to all those epic songs in Frozen 2.

For the perfect Disney Bounding tips, there’s one person who really knows her way around. Leslie Kay is the epitome of all things Disney Bound. She literally wrote the book on it, “DisneyBound: Dress Disney and Make It Fashion”. These three looks, created by Leslie herself, are the perfect fit for your next Frozen movie night!

Bring Frozen 2 To Your Home In Style With Disney Bounding

This Anna look is giving us some seriously royal vibes! The royal purple mixed with the metallic details are truly fit for any queen. The black dress offers a free flowing style that adds a level of comfort that is perfect for wearing at home.

In Frozen 2, we see a different side to Elsa than in the first film. Her adventure outfit is a bit more “queen casual” than her signature “Let It Go” gown. This bound matches that cool and casual look. Also, we can’t help but be living for those icicle, sparkly sneakers!

Last, is the reindeer king himself, Kristoff. This look is equally effortless as it is stylish. Pair neutral colors together to create a similar Kristoff color palette. Tie in some boots and try to get the family pet to stand in as your Sven and you are all set!

We hoped these looks help you in creating your own Frozen 2 looks! Remember, to make it creative and make it your own. Nothing completes a look more than owning it and being confident. Also, if you do put together some cool Disney Bounds, make sure to tag @ChipandCo on Instagram so we can check them out!

Disney Announces ‘Frozen’ Will Not Return to Broadway after Theaters Reopen

Disney Announces ‘Frozen‘ Will Not Return to Broadway after Theaters Reopen. The news was shared by Thomas Schumacher, the president of Disney Theatrical Productions in a letter to his staff.

The letter addressed how it is believed Frozen would not bring in the audiences needed to recoup losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic and has subsequently been cancelled. Having performed the “weakest” out of the three shows featured on Broadway in 2020, it seems natural the company would chose to close Frozen in favor of a new title that is more in demand by future audiences. “This difficult decision was made for several reasons but primarily because we believe that three Disney productions will be one too many titles to run successfully in Broadway’s new landscape,” shares Schumacher in the letter.

The letter also outlined that the company remains committed to “The Lion King” and “Aladdin” on Broadway, to “The Lion King” and “Mary Poppins” in London’s West End, and to touring productions of “The Lion King” and “Frozen” in North America and “The Lion King” in Britain. Schumacher shared a bit of insight into the future of Disney on Broadway and shared several new adaptions are currently in the works for the company including The Jungle Book, The Princess Bride, Bedknobs and Broomsticks and Hercules.

Disney Legend and famed composer Alan Menken has been hard at work with adapting Hercules for Broadway, but this is the first we have heard of The Jungle Book, The Princess Bride, and Bedknobs and Broomsticks being adapted for the stage! Disney Theatrical Productions is also working on overseas projects such as a revamping of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and Aida.

We are sorry to see DTP “Let it Go” sooner than expected, but we will still be able to enjoy the Broadway hit during the national tour later this year. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for all things Disney on Broadway!

A Behind-the-Scenes Look into the Animation of Frozen 2

A Behind-the-Scenes Look into the Animation of Frozen 2

Frozen 2 characters

It’s November, which means that we’ve officially entered the month of Frozen 2! It should be no surprise that we’ve basically been dreaming about seeing the film on the big screen for months!

About a month ago, we shared some exciting things we learned about Frozen 2 from the filmmakers. We’ve now returned to take a deeper dive into the animation of the upcoming film, and get a better understanding of how this beautiful upcoming masterpiece was brought to life.

The development of a great movie always begins with a great team. Frozen 2 involved bringing multiple artists together to create an overall animation style, despite having animators with their own unique approaches. While this was prone to its own set of challenges, there were leads that helped to carve out a cohesive direction. Alongside the Co-Heads of Animation, the Supervising Animators worked to take charge of the characters and really drive them.

When it comes to the process of animation, every person follows their own method to prepare for a scene. However, what is always consistent is the process of “issuing” with the directors, which encompasses breaking down what a scene will look like. In this stage, Directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck serve as the resources for the overall vision for the different characters and movements. The animators will then soak up all of the information they’re given to help bring the movie to life.

After issuing comes creating the layout for a scene. The job of the animation team is to then take the directors’ ideas and explore more of who the characters will be. How do they go about this, you may ask? By recreating their actions in real life! This often takes the form of acting out a motion to better see what it would look like, or shooting a reference. Co-Head of Animation Becky Bresee explains,

I actually act the scene out or my daughters will act the scene out, or [even] my husband will act the scene out. Everyone is affected by it.

The next step is Blocking, which involves looking at the timeline and number of frames in a shot. According to Co-Head of Animation Tony Smeed, the procedure entails filling in just enough film frames to pose a character in a “golden pose,” or showcase the tentpole moments of a scene. The purpose of this is to essentially showcase enough of the concept for the directors to understand, without having to fill out everything in case there are changes that need to be made. Upon receiving approval from the directors, the artists will close the gaps and smooth everything out.

The animation of Frozen 2 wouldn’t have been complete without some epic effects! From what we’ve seen in the trailer, we can expect the upcoming film to be nothing short of legendary. “Once you get to see the whole [film], every sequence seems to have [had] something really difficult to do. It was an effects animator’s dream come true because you [got] to do all this very cool, varied stuff,” states Head of Effects Animation Marlon West.

One of the amazing characters the effects animation team had the opportunity to take on was the Nokk, one of Frozen 2’s mythical characters. Fun fact: the Nokk took six months of development with half a dozen artists meeting almost daily! With that time frame and scale in mind, it isn’t shocking to hear that it was one of the most intensive characters from Frozen 2 to work on. Countless questions had to be considered during its creation, such as “How much do you even see Elsa through the Nokk?” West notes, “The character has to be believable above water [and] under water. Most of the things that make the Nokk look like water is his tail and his mane.” When working on effects, it’s also important to keep animations incorporated in mind to not conflict with the performance of the scene. Who else has full appreciation for the Nokk now?

What. A. Time. To. Be. Alive. We’re so ready to fully immerse ourselves with the animation of Frozen 2. Grab your friends and venture into the unknown when the film hits theaters November 22!
