In a few words, Disney’s Frozen is CRUSHING it at the box office. It has officially surpassed The Lion King. Frozen has generated $810 million in the global box office since opening in theaters. And, the movie is not showing any signs of slowing down. Although the box office numbers are what make headlines, we know these films and their success would not be possible without the inspired work of CG artists. Major round of applause for the CG artists – you make the Animation Mentor blog headlines. Check out the links below to get some behind-the-scenes insights.

Behind-the-Scenes Articles:

  • Disney’s Blog: Making It Snow – an interview with the Disney’s creative and visual effects teams.

  • Facebook: Frozen Behind-the-Scene Photos – an album of the people who helped make Frozen.
