On December 20th, Disney filed a lawsuit against the company due to trademark infringement and false advertising, the full complaint of which can be seen here.
Frozen Land was originally titled The Legend of Sarila and was released earlier in 2013 by a French-Canadian company. However, when Phase 4 picked the film up for distribution, the name, logo, and complete brand were drastically changed, allegedly in order to jump on the success of Frozen and trick some poor, innocent souls into accidentally purchasing the wrong movie on DVD.
Disney is asking Phase 4 to stop using the Frozen Land logo as it is nearly identical to Frozen’s branding. They also want Phase 4 to destroy all of the Frozen Land DVD’s and pay for various damages and costs.
