Animation fans are invited inside the halls of Walt Disney Animation Studios to witness the final year of production on Frozen 2 with the 6-episode premiere of the Disney+ exclusive, Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2. Some exciting additions join the library this week including Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, Disney Animation’s 1999 adaptation of Tarzan, and the Disney Channel series A.N.T. Farm. But for diehard Disney fans, the real excitement is the addition of two of the Tomorrowland episodes of Disneyland directed by Ward Kimball, Man in Space and Mars and Beyond. It’s another exciting week on Disney+ and whatever you choose to stream, we hope it’s magical.
Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2 – All 6 Episodes
“With the clock ticking and less than a year until the world premiere of Frozen 2, the filmmakers, artists, songwriters and cast open their doors to cameras for a six-part documentary series to reveal the hard work, heart, and collaboration it takes to create one of the most highly-anticipated films in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ near-century of moviemaking. For the first time, cameras were there to capture an eye-opening – and at times jaw-dropping – view of the challenges and the breakthroughs, the artistry, creativity and the complexity of creating the #1 animated feature of all time.”
