At Scholastic’s NYC headquarters yesterday, illustrator Kazy Kibuishi presented the last of the new Harry Potter book editions. You can check out the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows cover below. The event coincided with Harry Potter and author J.K. Rowling’s birthday! Happy belated birthday Harry and Jo!
At the same time the spines of each book were released. Together they create a photo of Hogwarts! I might just have to buy the set again.
The box set also includes a new photo of Hogsmeade:
The first trailer for Disney’s newest animated movie Frozen has been released!
Frozen’s trailer doesn’t show what the storyline will be about but it does play out a cute little short in which snowman Olaf and reindeer Sven competete to reach a carrot in the middle of the frozen lake, with slippery consequences.
Check it out below!
Although they don’t appear in this trailer, Frozen has an all-star cast including Kristen Bell voicing “fearless optimist” Anna, Jonathan Groff portraying “mountain man” Kristoff, and Idina Menzel who’s voicing Anna’s sister Elsa. Presumably the next trailer will include glimpses into the story. While we adults want to see a trailer with some kind of storyline, kids are sure to enjoy this trailer and be begging mom and dad to take them to see this movie – it is exceptionally cute and funny!
But for the adults here is a short synopsis: In Frozen, Anna and Kristoff head out to find Elsa because her “icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom.”
Bell, Groff, and Menzel also posses great vocal powers, so expect a couple of songs within Frozen too.
Frozen opens in theaters November 27, 2013. You can see the teaser trailer above in theaters this Friday with Disney’s Monsters University.
