Also.. again.. it sounds like Marketing speak... but they do create the impression that it's a never-ending arms race and if you want to cross over assets properly you need to bump up everybody prior to Frozen up to "Frozen Level".. and that's assuming Frozen will be the last film before the major crossover.
I would just chalk that up as marketing speak. As technology advances, they are always going to be moving forward creating new tools to better match the vision they have for the film.
They would probably end up redoing most of the characters anyways if they were to bring them back again at a later time because the pipelines change over time.If they created a film using Maya 2011 and are going to be doing a sequel 4 years later, they aren't going to just pull up 2011 again.
