Elsagate is a monster that won’t die. What is Elsagate? These animated and cosplay videos of popular characters engaging in violent and weird sex fetish acts. I don’t know who makes these videos, but children are their target audience.
Manga publisher and anime licensor Viz Media dumped a boatload of news on the press during NYCC, and we’re just now attempting to assemble it all. The first thing they revealed was that they were now publishing manga produced for Disney licenses: Star Wars and Frozen books will be released soon.
It was mere days ago (only two) that the producers and co-director of Frozen appeared at a press conference hyping the short Frozen Fever and said there were no plans for a Frozen 2 at that time. 48 hours later, this very morning at a shareholder’s meeting, Bob Iger and John Lasseter finally copped to it: yes, they’re going to make another one. They weren’t specific beyond that, but the greenlight could have very well come down hours ago.
When you think about it, once the right elements were combined, it was inevitable. You take the unstoppable, incurable mania of this nation’s young girls for all things Frozen, and an app store that’s heavily regulated yet allows ripoffs of anything to slip through, and what do you get? You get an unlicensed app game where you have to give a pregnant Anna a Caeserean section and deliver her baby.
