Rejected Princesses: The Weirder Tales Disney Will Never Do

We all know that Disney tends to soften those folk tales that they turn into movies, giving them happy endings, removing the less PG elements. However, there are some stories out there that are just a little too outrageous for even the House of Mouse, and there are quite of few of them that involve maidens. » 6/18/14 8:22pm 6/18/14 8:22pm

Cast of Frozen sings for fans live -- and here's why that's a big deal

Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell and the rest of the Frozen cast took the stage for a private concert.
