New Halloween movie is in the pipeline—From Mascotshows.com

A new instalment in the long-running Halloween franchise is reportedly on the cards, although it won’t be called Halloween: The Next Chapter as had previously been suggested.new-halloween-movie-is-in-the-pipeline-167165-a-1408600250-470-75

Schmoes Know had reported earlier in the year that Dimension was planning to reboot the film using the aforementioned subtitle, with the supposed plan being to offer “a fresh new take on the Halloween legacy”.

However, the official Halloween Facebook page has since posted a message dismissing such a project, while confirming that a new film is indeed in the pipeline.

“We’ve been getting a lot of e-mails/tweets/Facebook messages lately about a project called Halloween: The Next Chapter,” reads the post. “It seems that’s the latest buzz surrounding the next Halloween film and again it’s just not true.”

“As we stated before, a new instalment of Halloween is indeed in on track and moving forward and we are currently developing a script, to finally bring Michael back to the theaters!

“More information will be released over the coming months and exclusively at Halloweenmovies.com. So make sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook, so you can know first.” Looks like Michael is coming home once more…

Will Disney’s ‘Frozen’ Book Series Keep the Blockbuster Franchise Alive?

If you thought that Disney’s (NYSE: DIS ) blockbuster franchise Frozen would finally melt away, think again — Random House will soon publish a series of spin-off books starring Anna and Elsa.

The first two books — Anna & Elsa #1: All Hail The Queen and Anna & Elsa #2: Memory and Magic — will arrive on Jan. 6, 2015. The series, which will include “three to four” titles per year, will be penned by Erica David, who previously wrote novelizations of Spongebob Squarepants, Madagascar, and Spider-Man. The new books will pick up where the film left off.

While spin-off books of Frozen were inevitable, it’s interesting to see how Disney evolved a classic fairy tale into a film, then back into print form again. Could this new strategy help Frozen get even bigger and set the stage for new films?

Elsa’s icy empire
Frozen, which hit theaters last November, grossed $1.27 billion worldwide on a budget of $150 million, making it the highest-grossing animated film in history. Its soundtrack stayed at the top of the Billboard 200 for 13 consecutive weeks, and is still the sixth-best-selling album in America. The Blu-Ray Collector’s Edition of the film, which was released in March, is now the second-best-selling Blu-Ray of all time, selling 6.4 million units and generating $133 million in additional revenue. DVD sales brought in another $114 million.

Therefore, it’s not surprising that Disney has named Frozen as a top contributor to its top line for three consecutive quarters. Frozen’s box-office revenue flowed into album and DVD/Blu-Ray sales, which then expanded into branded consumer merchandise and mobile games like Frozen Free Fall. Thanks to Frozen, revenue last quarter at Disney’s consumer products and interactive segments respectively rose 16%, to $902 million, and 45%, to $266 million.

Looking ahead, Disney will extend Frozen’s icy reach into its media networks segment by introducing live-action versions of Anna and Elsa in the fourth season of its ABC series Once Upon a Time. Frozen is also featured in Disney on Ice and will head to Broadway, following in the footsteps of The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Little Mermaid.

What role will the new books play?
With Random House’s new books, Disney will completely overwrite Hans Christian Andersen’s original 1844 version of The Snow Queen with Elsa.

This isn’t the first time Disney expanded a classic fictional universe with new books. Random House’s Never Girls, which stars a group of girls who travel to Neverland, cleverly reversed the “lost boys” theme of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan to appeal to girls instead. Speaking to The Wall Street Journal, Random House President Barbara Marcus said that Never Girls “fills a real niche in the chapter book market.” Marcus also noted that the momentum of Frozen would only continue to grow, making it the “perfect focus” for a new book series.

Marcus certainly has a point. Frozen’s Little Golden Book, a hardcover retelling of the film for young children, is currently No. 12 on Amazon’s best-selling children’s books. That puts it behind The Hunger Games, but ahead of four Harry Potter books — not bad, considering that the little 24-page book was released before the film last October.

The new Frozen books will appeal to young readers who are too old for Little Golden Books but too young for violent teen hits like Twilight, The Hunger Games, and Divergent. By comparison, the Frozen books should be shorter and easier to read. For example, the Never Girls books are 128 pages long and written for kids 6-9. That’s not to say, of course, that slightly older Frozen fans won’t pick them up as well.

Stepping stones to a sequel
These new books could keep Frozen relevant for years to come, but more important, they could pave the way for new blockbuster films.

Disney hasn’t green-lit a sequel for Frozen yet, but it is inevitable, considering how profitable this multi-platform money maker has become. A Frozen sequel could easily become much bigger than the original, considering that Toy Story 3 — the second-highest-grossing animated film of all time — nearly tripled the box-office return of the original film with $1.06 billion in box-office revenue. But unlike Toy Story, Frozen is a musical — which means more memorable songs on chart-topping CDs could be on the way.

The Frozen takeaway
In conclusion, the new Frozen books will undoubtedly be best-sellers. They will also advance the film’s story and possibly lay out the framework for future sequels. But most important, they will keep the film relevant, ensuring that “Let It Go” remains a childhood anthem for years to come.

Wearing a costume is distinct than dressing like a character. Costumes are attention-getting by nature. They normally involve huge props, unusual styles of clothing, non-typical hair types and colors, armor, wings, and heavy makeup. These usually are not the average characters in anime or games – these are the warriors, princesses, magical girls, gods/goddesses, fairies, angels, demons, mascot characters, pets, superheroes, super villains, fantasy military characters, etc. Several video game characters fit into the “costume” category instead of the “dressing like a character” category – a 5-foot sword is going to draw interest. Here’s a regular I like to use to determine which range of cosplay you are performing: in case you can wear the outfit to KFC in the course of the dinner rush and also you do not get a single strange appear, then you’re not wearing a costume.

Now the problem becomes where to buy mascot costume? In fact, the best place to look for a mascot costume would be over the Internet. Online stores can provide excellent quality at reasonable prices and give you a greater variety than you get in the market. Moreover, if you want something specific in your mascot costume like a tag line or the name of a company etc. you can get it optimized according to your instructions. What is great is the ease with which you can find, place the order and get the mascot costume delivered to your home.

Disney’s Frozen facing a copyright infringement lawsuit

It may be one of the biggest animated movies, like, ever, but Disney’s Oscar-winning hit Frozen is currently involved in a lawsuit.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, animator Kerry Wilson is suing the house of mouse over claims of copyright infringement.

Wilson claims that similarities between her 2D computer-animated short The Snowman and a Frozen teaser trailer featuring Olaf the snowman and Sven the reindeer chasing Olaf’s carrot nose, are more than just a passing resemblance.

While Disney have tried to appeal, the claim is currently being upheld having passed the first round and if not settled, could go to trial.

It is said ‘Once Upon a Time’ showrunners spill ‘Frozen’ secrets (no Olaf!)

After a brutal hike up icy peaks to the Once Upon a Time set in Arendelle, we cornered the showrunners of ABC’s fantasy hit and demanded answers about season four’s much-buzzed-about Frozen storyline. Is Olaf going to be on the show? Are they going to give Elsa a love interest? How big a part of the show will Frozen be? And who is Elizabeth Mitchell playing, exactly? After a brief chase involving reindeers, sleighs and trolls, writer-producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz finally agreed to take our questions and give us an exclusive interview detailing their live-action take on the biggest animated movie of all time:
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Disney has been really accommodating to you in the past. But studios have historically been reluctant to let TV shows mine a current film franchise. Frozen was so huge, and there’s a possible sequel in the works. How did you convince them to let Once into this world?

1604745_647809541942701_737217817_n
Edward Kitsis: We really felt the characters would be a great fit for our show to incorporate into our universe. We really just asked, we took a shot, and we were pleasantly surprised when Disney said yes.
Adam Horowitz: There was a lot of support from within the company and we were very grateful. They trusted us with something and we take that very seriously, because it’s not just important to the company—it’s important to millions of fans of Frozen, and we want to do our best to honor what they loved about that movie, and more particularly, about those characters.
What’s your biggest concern taking this on creatively?
Horowitz: To do it justice. We would never want to re-do the movie. But we want this to feel like a part of [the movie] and feel a part of our show. We want it to walk that line of being part of the Once Upon a Time universe, but also feel like part of the Frozen world.
What was Disney’s biggest concern in terms of protecting the Frozen brand?
Kitsis: In the past, like, we made Peter Pan villainous, we’ve taken liberties with certain characters. This is a situation where everybody was on the same page. Adam and I were looking to bring the spirit of Elsa [on Once played by Georgina Haig] and Anna [Elizabeth Lail] into our show. We’re not looking to do a sequel, we’re just looking to bring them into our world for a fun story arc. So character and storywise, we just wanted to honor the characters. And with how recent the movie is, that was important to Disney as well.
Horowitz: In Once Upon a Time, we’ve approached these stories in different ways. Sometimes it’s like the Peter Pan way, where there’s a complete flip on the character and that’s our twist on it. And other times it’s about how these characters that we know fit in this world on this show—and that’s more what we’re doing with Frozen. We want to be true to the characters, we don’t want to change what they were in the movie, we want to be true to what we love about them and what everybody loves about them. Instead, we want the twist to be how they fit into our universe.

03
Kitsis: The entire writing staff was so inspired by this film. And thematically it’s very much within what we do—the [Frozen] curse was broken with true love’s kiss, but between sisters. And if you remember, [in] season one, we did [the curse breaking with the love] between a mother and a son. And the idea of a villain who is not actually a villain—one of the things we loved about Elsa is she went away not because she was a villain, but because she didn’t want to hurt anyone and felt different. All those themes are very related to some of our characters like Emma, and Regina and Rumpelstiltskin. It was like seeing two toys on a shelf we wanted to take off and play with.
Horowitz: From the start of Once Upon a Time we always talked about how one of the franchises on the show was love, and not just romantic love. And that was one of the things about Frozen. It was about love, but an act of true love as opposed to the traditional romantic love. We’ve tried to tell stories like that on Once, and this is what we’d like to continue with those characters—explore those ideas in that movie that we’ve already explored on Once and find a way to meet them up.
