Frozen” is undoubtedly one of the most successful animated movies in the history. It really is not a surprise to see fans asking for a sequel to the 2013 Disney movie.

While Disney has already confirmed that a “Frozen” movie sequel was in the works, little is still known about the second installment. There have been, however, tons of rumors and speculations on the Internet.

One of the most popular and highly controversial plots for “Frozen 2” is Elsa coming out of the closet. According to Perez Hilton, the #GiveElsaAGirlfriend became a trending topic on Twitter.

The publication notes that several fans are already petitioning to make Elsa a lesbian in “Frozen 2.” This came in as a possibility because Elsa did not have any love interest in the first movie while her sister, Anna, is already committed to Kristoff.

Idina Menzel, who served as the voice behind Elsa in “Frozen,” also expressed her support for the said campaign. Menzel, however, admitted that Disney will have to figure out how to make that work should they decide to fulfill the fans’ wishes.

Josh Gad also talked about a possible love interest for his character, Olaf. Speaking with Bustle, Gad admitted that he still does not know anything about the “Frozen” sequel.

Should “Frozen 2” explore a potential love interest for Olaf, however, Gad said that he is “hesitant” about that plot and even finds it “weird.” The actor, however, shared that he has faith in the writers.

“Frozen 2” is rumored to be released in 2017.

Reports revealed that the groups are calling on Disney to not male Elsa a gay character in the second installment of Frozen. They suggested that Elsa should have found a partner in the second movie. This means a new prince should be created for Elsa to fall in love with.

It should be noted that the major target audience of the franchise movie are children. So the groups are taking into consideration what values the film might be teaching to kids, should the movie portray Elsa as gay.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ Eclipses ‘Zootopia’ On Box Office! Will ‘Zootopia 2’ Cover Up?
“Captain America: Civil War” has done the impossible by breaking the record set by Disney’s “Zootopia” in terms of Worldwide Box Office. The superhero flick has managed to surpass the overall collection of “Zootopia” within a few days of its worldwide release.

This achievement has added yet another feather in Marvel Studios’ hat and has bagged another accolade for the production house. If the statistics revealed by Box Office Mojo is to be believed, this third Captain America installment has now broken another record by surpassing “Zootopia” for the number 1 spot on the global charts. “Civil War” has reportedly churned out $971.9 million on global box office.

On the contrary, “Zootopia” managed to make $971.3 million, thus, losing the trophy by a small margin to “Civil War.” With this, “Captian America: Civil War” is on its verge to become the first release of 2016 to cross the $1 billion mark, Screen Rant reported. In addition to this feat, the flick may also become the fourth one to taste this sweet success. The only other two flicks to achieve this are: “Avengers movies” and “Iron Man 3”.

Considering the fact that “Civil War” is on a record breaking spree, it is surely set to become the phenomenal hit of the year. However, the popularity of “Zootopia” cannot be undermined in any circumstances. Disney’s “Zootopia” is the biggest film from the house and has been a bigger hit than its counterparts, including the successful “Big Hero 6.”

However, “Captain America: Civil War” is not the only superhero flick to impress in 2016. “Deadpool” and “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” are the other two films to cast a spell on the audience. While, “Deadpool” that released in February, became the largest R-rated film of all-time, according to Screen Rant. Zack Snyder’s “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” also managed to sail on the box office despite drawing some flack. “Deadpool” managed to rake in $762.4 million, even without 3D and a ban in China, and “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” earned $870.1 million in all.

Paw Patrol has Spin Master on a roll as earnings exceed analyst expectations

If you don’t have children, the name Paw Patrol probably doesn’t mean a lot to you.

If you do have kids, the wildly successful series of toys, shows and video games about a boy and five rescue dogs might just be an ubiquitous presence in your life.

And if you invested in Spin Master, the Toronto-based company that created and own the franchise, Paw Patrol is money in the bank.

This past week, Spin Master released its first quarter 2016 earnings, exceeding analyst expectations with revenues of US$161.7 million, 51.9 per cent higher than the same time last year. It also revised its sales growth guidance from “high-single-digits” to the “mid-teens” range, mainly driven by Paw Patrol and the acquisition of American board game maker Cardinal Industries.

On Monday, its shares hit a new all-time high of $28.88 before closing at $28.26. They are now up more than 50% since its IPO last July.

“From a day to day perspective the company is exactly the same (as before going public),” said co-CEO Ronnen Harary. “We operate the same, we have the same long term goals in terms of fusing innovation into our brand, building our brands, expanding our global footprint, building up our entertainment slate and making strategic acquisitions.”

Spin Master was started in 1994 by Harary and two friends who as recent university graduates made nylon stocking-covered heads of sawdust topped with grass seeds which grew to look like hair, and sold them on the street in downtown Toronto.

The grass-covered heads were called Earth Buddy, developed in 1994 by Harary, Anton Rabie and Ben Varadi with a total investment of about $10,000.

Just over 20 years later, Spin Master has grown to be one of the largest toy companies in the world.

As simple as Earth Buddy was, it found shelf space at Toys ‘R’ Us and by the end of 1995 it had sold 1.5 million units.

Although Earth Buddy served as Spin Master’s launch pad, the company really took off in 1998 when it bought the rights to Air Hogs, a remote-controlled toy plane that flies using compressed air.

“It started from one product that all the other toy companies turned down,” said Harary.

Between 2002 and 2007, the company expanded its international footprint by opening offices across Europe.

In 2008, Spin Master opened its entertainment division to develop shows and video games, ideally creating three streams of revenue to tap parents’ wallets.

The team also realized there was more profit to be made in creating original characters and stories than buying someone else’s ideas.

“We noticed early on is that if you create your own (intellectual property) then you can actually build a franchise. If you build a franchise then you’re building what we believe to be a greater amount of equity,” said Harary.

After developing relationships with Nickelodeon and the Cartoon Network, Spin Master approached Bob the Builder creator Keith Chapman to invent a franchise and in 2013 unleashed the Paw Patrol animated series.

I equate the toy business as similar to fashion for kids in that they’re always looking for you to deliver an innovation
It turns out kids love it. Today the show is distributed in 160 countries and has a series of video games and a lineup of toys that are flying off the shelves. Paw Patrol even has a magazine in the U.K. and RBC Capital Markets analyst Sabahat Khan says he wouldn’t be surprised by a feature film down the line.

“All paws on deck,” wrote Khan in a note to clients. “The continued release of new content is expected to support the momentum of this franchise as the company looks to develop it into an evergreen property.”

Although the company did not disclose how much Paw Patrol’s added to its gross product sales, National Bank Financial analyst Adam Shine noted that the franchise contributed 25 per cent, implying sales of over US$245 million last year.

Khan says Paw Patrol’s contribution can be seen in the sales growth of the “Pre-School and Girls” category, which increased 80.9 per cent year over year in the quarter. For the full year, this category brought in sales of US$325.7 million in 2015 and a projected US$391.7 million by the end of 2016.

In February, Spin Master acquired Etch A Sketch and Doodle Sketch, which Khan says is “an opportunity to bring innovation to these iconic brands.”

Today, the company is the fifth-largest producer by sales in the U.S. toy industry and a top-10 player globally. Spin Master operates out of 14 offices in North America, Europe, and Asia, with sales in over 60 countries.

Harary says the next frontier will be international — particularly in Asia where the franchise has not yet been launched.

“I equate the toy business as similar to fashion for kids in that they’re always looking for you to deliver an innovation or something new that hasn’t been seen before,” he said.

“It’s part art, part science and you’re looking for that magical moment where the kids connect with the toy in a special way.”
