Share in the Magic with Disney
As 2013 draws to a close, magic is starting to fill the air. Summer holidays, long days and warm nights, it’s all part of the truly South African yuletide traditions we celebrate! And this year, Disney is joining in the celebrations by bringing together their biggest Festive promotion to date – Share in the Magic with Disney – from 4 November through 31 December at leading retailers (and cinema’s) nationwide.
From parent to teenager, from tween to toddler, we all have our own special memories of the Disney Magic. This Festive Season, Disney will be offering the entire family the chance to re-live and experience for the first time, all the memories, drama, comedy and excitement! Throughout November and December, a myriad of new and current releases will be made available to consumers, offering the perfect gifting solution for this Festive Season, ranging from DVD/Blu-ray, gaming, music and consumer products – there is something for everyone!
The “coolest” film this Summer!
What better way to beat the Summer heat than by taking the family and going to see Disney’s brand new animation hit, Frozen, which releases nationwide on 20 December? From Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen is a stunning big-screen comedy adventure. Fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey—teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven—to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf (voice of Josh Gad), Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom. Comedy capers in an icy Frozen landscape – Frozen is perfect for the whole family!
To Infinity…and beyond
Disney Infinity, Disney Interactive’s most ambitious gaming platform to date, has just reached over 1 million units sold since its release in August this year.
