Walt Disney Studios has released a trailer for their new animated feature Frozen, along with four (!) new posters. The film, which has long been in development hell, was actually borne out of The Snow Queen, which was put on hold in 2010. After several of the reported story issues were fixed, the film received a new title, cast and director. Frozen is the story of Anna (Kristen Bell), on a hunt to find her sister Elsa (Idina Menzel) who has put a spell of eternal winter and trapped the kingdom of Arendelle. Jonathan Groff voices the distractingly handsome Kristoff, who tags a long for a very Disney-esque adventure.
The story is loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s famous tale and was adapted by Shane Morris and Jennifer Lee (Wreck-It Ralph), who co-directs with Chris Buck (Surf’s Up, Tarzan).
Frozen will chill out in theatres starting November 27th. Check out the trailer, the new posters and synopsis below.
Walt Disney Animation Studios presents an epic tale of adventure and comedy in “Frozen,” a computer-animated feature film slated for the big screen in November 2013. Directed by Chris Buck (“Tarzan,” “Surf’s Up”) and produced by Peter Del Vecho (“Winnie the Pooh,” “The Princess and the Frog”), “Frozen” features the vocal talents of film/TV/stage star Kristen Bell as Anna, a young dreamer about to take the adventure of a lifetime, and Tony Award ®-winning actress Idina Menzel as Elsa the Snow Queen. The movie will feature original songs by Broadway greats Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.
In “Frozen,” a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, so Anna (voice of Bell) must team up with Kristoff, a daring mountain man, on the grandest of journeys to find the Snow Queen (voice of Menzel) and put an end to the icy spell. Encountering Everest-like extremes, mystical creatures and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.
