Arrives Home on Digital Feb. 11 and on Blu-rayä Feb. 25

BURBANK, Calif. (Jan. 21, 2020) — Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Frozen 2” has melted hearts around the world, becoming the No. 1 animated feature of all time. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the follow-up to 2013’s hit Oscar®-winning Best Animated Feature,“Frozen,” comes home, with a sing-along version and all-new extras, on Digital in 4K Ultra HD™, HD and Movies Anywhere on Feb. 11, and on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™ and DVD on Feb. 25.

“Frozen 2” bonus features include deleted scenes, deleted songs, Easter eggs, outtakes and a sing-along version with lyrics to the film’s forever-infectious songs. Extras invite viewers to go behind-the-scenes to hear personal, making-of stories from the “Frozen 2” cast and crew. Fans who bring the film home early on Digital will receive two exclusive extras: an interview with songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who won an Oscar® for Best Original Song (“Let It Go,” 2014) and wrote seven original songs for “Frozen 2,” and a deleted song titled “Unmeltable Me.”

In “Frozen 2,” the answer to why Elsa was born with magical powers is calling her and threatening her kingdom. Together with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, she sets out on a dangerous but remarkable journey. In “Frozen,” Elsa feared her powers were too much for the world. In the highly anticipated sequel, she must hope they are enough. From the Academy Award®-winning team—directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, producer Peter Del Vecho and songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez—“Frozen 2” features the voices of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad. 

“Frozen 2” will be packaged several ways to ensure families get the most out of their at-home viewing experience. The film will first be made available on Digital in 4K Ultra HD™, HD and SD offerings on Feb 11 with two extra bonus exclusives. Additionally, a Digital bundle, which includes both “Frozen” and “Frozen 2,” will be made available for purchase in 4K Ultra HD™, HD and SD. Physical copies of the film will be available on Feb. 25 as a 4K Ultra HD™ Combo Pack (4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and Digital Code), a Multi-Screen Edition (Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Code) and a single DVD.

Additionally, all-new toys inspired by the film’s finale featuring Queen Anna and Elsa the Snow Queen will hit retail shelves on February 22 timed to the in-home release.

From author ofAbsolutely EverythingChristopher Lloyd comes a fascinating book uncovering the curious connections between humans and other animals.

So you think you're special? You think that just because people have built giant cities, invented pop-up toasters and put a person on the Moon that they are somehow different from other living things? Well it's time to think again!

HUMANIMALshows the inextricable interconnections of the human and animal worlds in ways you never before imagined... Inside you will discover how slime moulds can solve how to navigate through a maze; how rats tickle and laugh out loud; how elephants have funerals for their lost loved ones; how bees vote in elections to decide where to locate their nests; how crows use cars to crack nuts and a whole lot more! This oversized, richly illustrated, mesmerizing exploration shows that humans and other animals don't just live on the same planet, they also share many of the same patterns of behavior, making us all fellow players in the drama that is life on Earth.

HOW TO TEACH PHILOSOPHY TO YOUR DOG

Anthony McGowan

Monty was just like any other dog. A scruffy and irascible Maltese terrier, he enjoyed barking at pugs and sniffing at trees. But after yet another dramatic confrontation with the local Rottweiler, Anthony McGowan realizes it’s high time he and Monty had a chat about what makes him a good or a bad dog. 

Taking his lead from Monty’s canine antics, McGowan takes us on a hilarious and enlightening jaunt through the major debates of philosophy. Will Kant convince Monty to stop stealing cheesecake? How long will they put up with Socrates poking holes in every argument?  

How to Teach Philosophy to Your Dog (Pegasus Books; 2/4/2020) is an introduction to the big questions in philosophy. In this uniquely entertaining take on morality and ethics, the dutiful duo set out to uncover who―if anyone―has the right end of the ethical stick and can tell us how best to live one’s life.

About the Author:Anthony McGowan has a BA, MPhil, and PhD in philosophy, and has lectured widely on philosophy and creative writing. He is one of the funniest writers around. As an author for children and young adults he’s won many awards, while The Art of Failing, a hilarious account of his life as a writer, was named an Observer Book of the Year. He lives in North London with his wife and two children.

 

Advance Praise

“A charming, informative, unique introduction to Western philosophy.”

Kirkus Reviews

“Essential reading on both the meaning of dogs and the meaning of life.”

The Guardian

“McGowan playfully explores philosophy in this amusing collection of imaginary dialogues conducted with his Maltese terrier, Monty. Readers who have never roamed the paths of philosophy before, or who could use a return trip, will appreciate this enjoyable tour from a friendly guide and his loyal companion.”

Publishers Weekly

“Filled with sparkling insights, a joy from start to finish. In turns witty, brilliant and irreverent, McGowan explains nothing less than the meaning of life – to his dog. If only we were all as lucky as Monty to go for long walks with the author.”

Peter Frankopan, author of The Silk Roads

On the Backs of Tortoises
Darwin, the Galápagos, and the Fate of an Evolutionary Eden
 
Elizabeth Hennessy
 
An insightful exploration of the iconic Galápagos tortoises, and how their fate is inextricably linked to our own in a rapidly changing world
 
The Galápagos archipelago is often viewed as a last foothold of pristine nature. For sixty years, conservationists have worked to restore this evolutionary Eden after centuries of exploitation at the hands of pirates, whalers, and island settlers. Elizabeth Hennessy’s book tells the story of the islands’ namesakes—the giant tortoises—as coveted food sources, objects of natural history, and famous icons of conservation and tourism. By doing so, it brings into stark relief the paradoxical, and impossible, goal of conserving species by trying to restore a past state of prehistoric evolution. The tortoises, Hennessy demonstrates, are not prehistoric, but rather microcosms whose stories show how deeply human and nonhuman life are entangled. Acknowledging the interlocked relationship between evolution and global history, Hennessy puts forward a vision for conservation based on reckoning with the past, rather than trying to erase it.

Advance Praise for On the Backs of Tortoises
 
“Wonderfully interesting, informative, and engaging, as well as scholarly.”—Janet Browne, author of Charles Darwin: Voyaging and Charles Darwin: The Power of Place
 
“Timely, fresh, and compelling . . . a must read for anyone interested in the environmental history of the Galapagos and tortoise conservation.”—Jamie Lorimer, University of Oxford, author of Wildlife in the Anthropocene:  Conservation after Nature
 
“Hennessy’s book isn’t just about the controversial efforts to preserve the world’s most famous tortoises—it also provides an expansive tour de force of Darwinian ideas, the Galapagos, human entanglements in evolution, and the risks of icon making.”—Daniel Lewis, author of Belonging on an Island: Birds, Extinction, and Evolution in Hawai‘i
 
“Hennessy’s enthralling history of the iconic Galápagos Islands focuses on the tortoises after which they are named to deftly unpack the contradictions of global conservation in the name of science.”—Claudia Leal, author of Landscapes of Freedom: Building a Postemancipation Society in the Rainforests of Western Colombia
 
“Hennessey finds that even though this archipelago is 97% a national park, humans can no longer consider themselves distinct from nature, but rather are an inseparable part of it with consequences for the identity of each.”—Deborah Cramer, author of The Narrow Edge: A Tiny Bird, an Ancient Crab, and an Epic Journey

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (November 11, 2019) ⎼ When Arkansas native Blane Howard wrote “Promise to Love Her” it was never meant to be anything more than a simple gift. A gift that Howard surprised his bride, Megan, with on the morning of their wedding. Penning the song was, for him, less about writing a song, and more about translating his love for his wife into something they could always share, and it is one that most people will surely relate with. The song has quickly become his biggest success to date with more than 40 million streams across digital platforms. Shortly after the song’s release, at his fans’ behest, Blane and some friends created a video for the song, which included actual footage from his own wedding. While the original video has garnered more than 7.5 million views online, it was time to freshen it up for broadcast television. Last week, the official music video, featuring his wife, premiered on CMT Music and CMT.com.

 

“This song has touched so many people across the country and beyond, and I can’t wait to see how many more it will touch by being on CMT. This new version of the video tells the story how I always wanted it told, and I think the viewers will enjoy it even more,”  said Howard.

 

The video was directed and produced by four-time CMT Video of the Year nominees, 1010 Creative’s Steve Jawn and Dani Condon. “Promise to Love Her” was written by Howard with ACM Award winner Jordan Reynolds (Dan + Shay’s “Tequila”) and produced by GRAMMY, ACM, and CMA Award nominated producer Brad Hill (Maren Morris, Brothers Osborne).

His relatable lyrics, powerful vocals, and entertaining shows are winning him fans around the world. 

At the age of 3, Blane stood in front of the TV with a blue and green plastic guitar and sang along with Alan Jackson's, "Chasin' That Neon Rainbow." A big fan of Johnny Cash as well, and sharing the same birth date, Howard tells a story about his grandmother singing Cash songs to him and his cousins. Living close to a railroad track, she would rush all the kids to the window when they would “hear the train a coming” and break into her rendition of “Folsom Prison Blues.” Howard often says that as a child he thought Cash had stolen the song from her! Today he is drawn toward the styles of artist like Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, and Brothers Osborne. All of these influences have made an impact on Blane's unique style of country, modern-traditional, mixing the authenticity of the 90s with the contemporary edge of today! 

Since graduating from Belmont University in 2010, Howard has had the privilege of opening up shows for many country greats including Blake Shelton, Josh Turner, Joe Nichols, Lauren Alaina, Trace Adkins, Rodney Atkins, Hunter Hays, Granger Smith, Travis Tritt, Charlie Daniels Band, and others. Blane has played multiple venues of all sizes as well as all types of fairs and festivals across the mid plains and mid-south including the Arkansas State Fair, State Fair of Texas, South Carolina Peach Festival, Western Kentucky State Fair, and multiple shows at CMA Fest.


‘Bout Time' is the title track to Blane's original EP which was released in January of 2013; he followed that up in 2014 with a two-song CD of "Arkansas, Y'all," which was a song penned for the Arkansas Department of Tourism’s Song of Arkansas contest. In 2015, he released his first full album, "Away We Go," which has many great singles including "Friday Feeling," and "Crazy," as well as the title track. Blane was married in the fall of 2016 and as a gift for his bride-to-be, he wrote "Promise To Love Her." After a short video clip from their wedding of the couple dancing to the song took off on social media, and requests for the song flooded his social media pages, he decided that he should record the song. In March of 2017 the single released to glowing reviews and hit national radio, making its way to #33 on the Music Row Breakout Chart, holding there for three weeks. The music video has picked up over 5.7 MILLION views on FB alone and also received television airplay on networks such as Great American Country, The Country Network, and The Heartland Network where it continues to air today. The Heartland Network also picked up Howard’s music video for his single “Crazy.” 

In early 2018, the legendary John Berry invited Blane to film a segment with him for The Heartland TV Network’s second season of “Songs and Stories with John Berry.” The show was filmed at the Fontanel in Nashville and Howard’s episode aired in June of 2018. 

When Blane is not on the road, he stays busy writing new songs with other artists and songwriters in Nashville.
