Were you too busy today to catch the Walt Disney Company 2014 Annual Meeting of Shareholders? Not to worry, below is a compilation of everything that was discussed. Not in as much detail, but enough to give you an idea of everything that was discussed.
Frozen, Frozen, Frozen, Frozen, Frozen ... and some other movie stuff. But mostly Frozen.
It's no question that Frozen is a major hit. HUGE, Gargantuan, about to become the #1 grossing animated movie of all time. So of course there was lots of talk by Bob Iger about Frozen.
But the biggest news was that there is FINALLY going to be a sequel to The Incredibles as well as another sequel to Cars.
While the Cars sequel shouldn't come as a surprise to anybody, that movie is a merchandising juggernaut, the long sought after Incredibles Sequel should be met with excitement by everybody. How it took this long is anybody's guess.
There was also some talk about Star Wars Episode VII which will reportedly take place approximately 30 years after Star Wars Episode VI (Return of the Jedi).
Lastly, they released a third trailer for Maleficent which continues to look great.
Pirates of the Caribbean Battle for Sunken Treasure
One of the only Parks announcements was a new Pirates of the Caribbean ride for Shanghai Disneyland. This is the first of the Pirates rides that is going to be based on the film franchise vs the versions that have had characters from the movies added to existing attractions.
During the Q&A there was an odd question segment by one person, but one nugget that did come out of that is that there will be "some" Mulan presence in the Shanghai park.
Not much more news than that at this time.

There were, as always, questions from those in attendance. These are mostly Disney fans asking questions, so they certainly ran the gamut. A list of some of the questions asked:
