It's somewhat hard to believe, but this fall will mark four years since Walt Disney Animation Studios' FROZEN first brought an icy blast into theaters. Families still can't get enough of from the residents of Arendelle, with the Frozen Fever short being too short, and the feature-length sequel still a couple of years off. This holiday season, we'll get a little something to tide us over in the form of an all-new, 21-minute short - Olaf's Frozen Adventure. Making it's debut on November 22 alongside Disney•Pixar's COCO. Check out the trailer below!
Not long into the first act of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Moana, there’s a scene where the young Polynesian princess (voiced by Auli'i Cravalho) flat-out disobeys her father. As the leader of the island of Motunui, Chief Tui Waialiki (Temuera Morrison) maintains a firm, yet humble demeanor - looking after the care of his people, though nothing is more important to him than the well-being of his daughter.
As we head into the big Christmas weekend, Walt Disney Animation Studios' MOANA is still wowing audiences, and here at Rock Father HQ, two things are happening: The girls keep getting more MOANA toys, and the soundtrack is in regular rotation. Indeed, the music is excellent, and today we have an official video for "Shiny," as performed by Jemaine Clement (FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS, The BFG) as Tamatoa, alongside Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson as Maui. Check it out, alongside the rest of the soundtrack in the player below...
This weekend, audiences everywhere have begun discovering Walt Disney Animation Studios' 56th animated feature, MOANA, turning out in record numbers for a big adventure unlike any other. With buzz that began long before the film's release, items from Moana have quickly become must-have gifts for the holiday season, and for kids and collectors alike, a variety of new figures from Funko have taken a spot in my 2016 Holiday Wish Guide, sponsored by Entertainment Earth.
We're nearing the Thanksgiving week release of one of our girls' most-anticipated films of the year, Walt Disney Animation Studios' Moana.

Today we've got a new featurette called “The Way to Moana,” featuring commentary from filmmakers, voice talent, songwriters, and key advisors from the Pacific Islands - delving into the research and collaboration that went into the film, helping to ensure the story celebrates the Pacific Island cultures that so deeply inspired it. Check out that and all related video from the film in the player below!
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ MOANA opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016, and today comes a pair of new clips from the film, along with full details on the film's original soundtrack.
