  • Disney Twenty-Three Magazine Spring Issue to Take Us to Oz, Animal Kingdom, More

    The next issue of Disney Twenty-Three magazine will have us returning to Oz and also celebrates the 15th anniversary of Disney's Animal Kingdom. Plus, there's some never before seen concept art from the upcoming animated film, Frozen.

    I'm looking forward to this one. Oz, the Great and Powerful is one of the films I'm most excited about. If Disney can pull this one off, there's real potential for an amazing franchise here for them. I'm wishing them lots of luck on this. But the concept art sure looks fantastic.

    Here's the release about the new magazine from D23:

    Never-Before-Seen Concept Art from Walt Disney Animation Studios' Frozen

    BURBANK, Calif. – January 30, 2013 – The spring issue of Disney twenty-three, the flagship magazine of D23: The Official Disney FanClub, hits stands February 12, loaded with articles to delight both Disney fans and the general public. The cover story, “A Great and Powerful Odyssey,” gives readers an exclusive tour of the land at the end of the road of yellow bricks in Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful releasing in theaters this March. The article features interviews with stars Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Zach Braff. In addition, there’s a sneak peek of 2014’s Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie, which offers a new take on the legendary Sleeping Beauty story.

    The Emerald City theme continues with a second story illuminating the many connections between Disney and Oz, including Walt Disney’s early attempts to bring Oz to the big screen. The story includes rarely seen images from the Walt Disney Archives and a fond look back at Disney’s 1985 release Return to Oz.

    In celebration of the 15th anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we sit down with Imagineer Joe Rohde as he reflects on the evolution of Disney’s wildest and most spiritual park.

    “Frozen in Time” includes concept art from the upcoming film Frozen, due in theaters this November. Walt Disney Animation Studios brings an ice-covered world tolife as Anna (voiced by Kristen Bell) seeks to reverse a curse put on her kingdom by a cold-hearted snow queen (voiced by Idina Menzel), who also happens to be her sister.
