According to Nikkei Asian Review, the Oriental Land Company–which owns and operates the Tokyo Disney Resort–will be undergoing a massive fiscal investment/expansion to the tune of $4.58 billion (USD) through 2023. As there are no other reportings on this topic we post this as pure speculation and rumor. Take it with a grain of snow!
As part of the rumored investment, a "large attraction" based on FROZEN (which, in Japan, has a box office take rivaled only by the film Titanic and Avatar) will be included with a recreation of the film's castle (unclear if it's Elsa's ice castle or Arendelle's own grand palace.) Interestingly, the rumored changes are also to include a renovation of Fantasyland and a relocation of the "it's a small world" attraction.
There's no official announcements from the OLC as yet but it's interesting food for thought to see if/how the well-reputed Japanese company will bring to life Disney's hottest (coolest?) property in quite some time.byPublished on 10-29-2014 10:30 AMCategories:

We'll have more coverage soon but in a whirlwind event this morning at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, Marvel Studios announced the roster of upcoming films for Phase 3 of its massive Marvel Cinematic Universe attack! Are you ready?
See all the announcements after the jump! Keep an eye out here or on Twitter as we make more announcements!
Today, DisneyToon Studios announced Ginnifer Goodwin will be joining the Disney Fairy family as the new voice of Fawn. Plus, a new clip released also introduces GRUFF who is the subject of Pixie Hollow myth and the new film TINKER BELL AND THE LEGEND OF THE NEVERBEAST.
Fawn was voiced by America Ferrera for the very first Tinker Bell movie but has since been voiced by voice actress Angela Bartys. This is not the first substitution of voice talent for the roster of main fairy friends. The fairy Rosetta was voiced for Kristen Chenoweth for many of the films but of late has been voiced by Megan Hilty. Lucy Liu and Raven Symone have remained consistent with their respective voice work as Silvermist and Iridessa. Mae Whitman has also consistently voiced the titular Tinker Bell.
