Reading the Two Trailer Clues Before Frozen 2

Release Date:
November 21, 2019

Usually there’s at two, and if we’re lucky three, trailers leading up to the release of the most anticipated films for the year. In the case of Disney Frozen 2, we only have two. Part of the appeal is not only with the Broadway style spectacle and musical numbers. For me, it’s the folklore being established. Dark Horse Comics teased at a few elements in its two graphic novels–namely neighbouring kingdoms to which Arendelle is either at peace with (or not).

In looking over the trailers again before opening night, I previously said everything I can with the first release. The second one is a bit more telling. We are introduced to Anna and Elsa’s parents, telling a once upon a time style tale. There was once an enchanted forest. It was magical but something went wrong. Nothing could get in or out because a veil of mist appeared.

The Comedy JEXI Gets a Green Band Trailer

5 Sep

Release Date:
October 11, 2019

If a passing familiarity to American made Her or the Japanese Animation Video Girl Ai sounds familiar, Jexi is the film for you. CBS Films and Entertainment One in conjunction with Lionsgate will release this comedy in theaters on October 11, 2019.

When Phil (Adam Devine) is your typical awkward guy who needs help to make girlfriends, the last thing anyone needs is a virtual assistant who has a mind of her own. When he upgrades his phone, the latest model comes with an unexpected feature–Jexi (Rose Byrne) – an A.I. life coach and cheerleader. She offers more than Amazon’s Alexa or Apple’s Siri ever can, and sounds cuter too!

The power of myth is strong in China; Nezha is a guardian deity who perhaps rivals the fame of the Monkey King. Both are household names, and the literature they hail from is the most studied. It’s a classical work which teaches prime virtues to which many folks from this country tend to follow.

In Journey to the West, this human fought the primate when he rebelled. They would later become friends. The 3D animated movie about the boy to become a god debuted early this year and it has been making huge waves as it looks to this man’s early days–demonized and not knowing his place in the world–before being the individual he is now.

New Frozen 2 Trailer Goes North!

The new teaser trailer for Frozen 2 is exciting for the majesty invoked, and in what it’s telling, Elsa (Idina Menzel) magical powers may have come from other supernatural sources. Or, as the Northern setting suggests, could she be of the faerie folk? I’m only guessing here, but this new offering released today gives fans a lot of reasons to be excited about this film when it plays in theatres in November.

She’s backed by her sister, Anna (Kristen Bell), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), Olaf the snowman (Josh Gad) and Sven the reindeer in a quest to save the kingdom. This time, it’s not from human invaders, but rather supernatural ones. Together, they have to go north perhaps to discover her true nature and find out what granted her these powers. Or was she born with it?
