ENCHANTING NEW ANIMATED MOVIES: RUSSIA'S 'SNOW QUEEN 3: FIRE AND ICE' AND EPIC 'BABA YAGA', KOREA'S 'RED SHOES AND THE SEVEN DWARFS'

'SNOW QUEEN 3: FIRE AND ICE'
DELIGHTFUL POSTERS & TRAILER
To finish our international movies week, since Hollywood is still sleeping, we're going childish today with delightful new international animated movies! We will begin with the third part of one of Russia's most successful animated movie franchises: SNOW QUEEN 3: FIRE AND ICE which skated into Russian cinemas yesterday to celebrate New Year's Holidays! And no, it is not Frozen rip-off since the first movie in the saga premiered in 2012 a year ahead of it. The third part will play in European, Korean and Indian cinemas throughout January.
KAI AND GERDA
The movie follows Kai and Gerda from one of the most beloved fairy tales Snow Queen. The rare gift of getting into all kinds of trouble is their family trait. What else can you expect from the ones raised among trolls in snowy lands? But now Kai and Gerda have grown up and entered a new stage - this time they are going to cause a global disaster...



LEGENDARY 'BABA YAGA'
 FIRST MOVIE ART IS HERE
Another Russian animated epic adventure scheduled for next year is BABA YAGA based on famous Slavic fairy tale character but going beyond the traditional image of an old hag who scares little children. What led the young sorceress Yadviga to turn into the recluse Yaga, living on a swamp in a hut on chicken legs? And what will happen when Princess Sapphire (Sineglazka) accidentally stumbles across Yaga's swamp in her quest to find rejuvenating apples at the world's edge for her evil witch stepmother? BABA YAGA is a colourful and fascinating journey, in which the power of friendship and faith in humanity triumphs over betrayal and evil.

'RED SHOES & THE 7 DWARFS'
HILARIOUS TEASER IS HERE!
Speaking of Korea, check out the cute teaser for their own animated movie adventure RED SHOES & THE SEVEN DWARFS which should arrive sometime next year following princes, who have turned into Dwarfs, and who seek the red shoes of a lady in order to break the curse, although it won't be easy. It is a parody with a twist.Judging from the teasers released so far I think it is being made for adult audiences not for kids :)

    6. Jason gave up and bought button extenders for his pants to get him through the holidays lol. I gained 10 pounds myself, but we're both back on the workout scene, so hopefully we won't have to suck it in for too long.

    7. I officially do not wear jeans anymore, just sweatpants, I even bought me some of the fancy modern ones that look like baggy shalvars :) I look ridiculous in them, but at least I don't have to worry about buttons

    1. they always use her in Slavic countries to threaten misbehaving kids :) She was supposed to appear in Luke Evans' DRACULA UNTOLD played by Samantha Barks, but she was cut out of the movie in the end

  4. I always loved the story of Kai and Gerda!

  7. Red Shoes has been on my radar since way back. It's overdue for animation to focus on adult/older audiences. Too many of these kid animation movies have issues because the studio also wants them to sell toys. Just do the damn movie! Been hearing about the Russian Snow Queen series but have not seen any of them yet. All this animation is making me giddy! Thanks for the buzz, Dez.

    1. Russians have quite strong animation studios, back in the previous century their animated movies were the most enchanting mesmerizing ones you could imagine, following their traditional fairy tales, my childhood was made better thanks to them. I wish I could find some of them on YouTube
