I just did this this morning. Once you remove the caliper and brake pad frame, you have to beat the rotor with a heavy hammer. Work around methodically in a circle and avoid hitting the threads on the studs for the wheel. I started from behind and then whack the front side. It will eventually free up.

I would recommend using a heavy rubber mallet, or a piece of wood when loosening the rotor, not a metal hammer. Unless your plan is to replace the rotors with new ones. Replacing or not, take the opportunity to check those bearings and bearing seals while it's apart :)
