Get Ready to Return to Arendelle – The Frozen 2 Trailer

I sat on this trailer for a day before attempting to put my thoughts here. I watched it over and over again and continued to find the trailer dark and grim. Not at all what I expected.

To be honest, I don’t know what I expected but I do know I didn’t expect Frozen 2 to be grim. Over time I think we have all come to think of Frozen as a happy story hugely because we know the ending and love the songs.

This initial trailer is not at all what was expected, but we all know that trailers can sometimes be deceiving, and we’ll certainly see more trailers with different tones and focal areas of the film before November.

This initial trailer feels a wee bit dark to me. It’s a wordless collection of scenes of the characters striving at various unclear tasks. 

And then there are the new characters! Who are they? How will they be brought into the film? The new girl looks a lot like Anna – is she a young Anna in a bit of a flashback? 

We have been told that Frozen 2 will again be a musical with original songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez returning to write the songs.

Officially we have also been told that Elsa, Anna, Kristoff and Olaf are going far into the forest to know the truth about an ancient mystery of their kingdom.

The end of the trailer does show our favorite characters walking together and staring out over beautiful scenery and seems to imply they’re going someplace. 

Disney will certainly share more trailers as the release date gets closer, along with an official synopsis that will answer many of our questions. In the meantime, what are your thoughts on this first trailer?

 

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen 2 opens in U.S. theaters on November 22, 2019.

Aladdin Trailer – Will Smith as the Genie

If you watched the Grammy Awards, you’ve already seen it. If you didn’t – here it is – the first ever TV spot for Disney’s Aladdin.

Although many have not been fans of the live re-makes that Disney has been doing, I have to say that I have loved each one.

I’ll will admit, I did struggle just a wee little bit with this new Disney live-action remake. It wasn’t the film itself I was struggling with. It was the Genie I was struggling with. In my mind I felt that Robin Williams would always be the Genie and there was nothing anyone could do to change that.

Can you imagine Will Smith having to live up to the memory of Robin Williams as the Genie. Kudos to him for trying. Kudos to him for doing such a great job. I can’t wait to see the whole film.

Now I know they will do a great job with the film and it will be easy to see Will Smith in the role.

Well, I’ve always been willing to admit when I’m wrong and when it comes to Will Smith’s Genie – I was wrong. I was surprised by the negativity on Twitter following the release of this trailer. I don’t think many are giving it a chance.

Just this tiny little snippet made me smile. Reminded me of the goofy Will Smith and the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. It reminded me of the Will Smith that made me grin from ear to ear before he was the adventurous, action hero.

I honestly think Will Smith will do a great job – we shall see when the film opens May 24. 

Apart from the Genie, check out the beautiful and vibrant colors in the parade scene, it makes you want to jump right in and be there!

If you are someone who loves to party, this post is just for you! Read on to discover more about the best nightclubs of all time.

Studio 54

If Studio 54 was still open, we would be hopping on a plane to New York to experience it for ourselves. If you think clubbing in your hometown is bad in terms of picky bouncers, you should have been around when Studio 54 was the hottest spot in town. If you didn’t make it through the velvet ropes of the club you could kiss goodbye to your social life.

Ministry of Sound

You may not be able to experience Studio 54, but you can certainly visit Ministry of Sound. Situated in London, this is one of the most famous dance spaces in the entire world. If you want to experience some of the best DJs on the globe, Ministry of Sound is a must-visit. The club also features a special sprung floor, a noise-containing design, and a world-class sound system.

The Viper Room

You may have heard of The Viper Room, which is a famous music club located on the Sunset Strip in Las Vegas. The club used to be owned by Johnny Depp. Despite having a huge reputation, the venue itself is intimate and is the best place to watch up and coming talent.

LIV

If you have a taste for luxury, you will love LIV. This nightclub is located on Miami Beach. The décor will literally take your breath away. There are six private skyboxes with individual minibars. The great thing about Miami is that the party never stops. There are boat parties by day and clubs at night. You can look into Miami yacht charters with BOAT.ME if you want to start your party off in the right way and then move onto LIV nightclub afterward.

Pacha

It wouldn’t be right to continue this post without having an Ibiza nightclub on the list. After all, the Spanish island is considered party paradise. Pacha is a name that is well known all over the world. This club attracts the most famous DJs and is huge, with a capacity of 3,500.

Marquee

Finally we have Marquee, which is a nightclub located in Las Vegas. As is the case with most places in Vegas, extravagance is the name of the game at Marquee. From four-story LED screens to infinity pools, this club has it all. The club has many different rooms, with the Library and Boom Box both offering more chilled and intimate settings.

From Studio 54 to Pacha, now you know a bit more about some of the best clubs from around the world! Which one would you most like to visit?

In RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET, video-game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C.
