About Disney’s Frozen
Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind “Tangled” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” presents “FROZEN” a chilly twist on one of the most humorous and heartwarming stories ever told. “FROZEN” is an adventure that delivers a fresh and contemporary take on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic winter myth “The Snow Queen,” features an ensemble cast of fun and entertaining characters, including a comedic snowman brought to life by magic, as they embark on an exciting journey to save the kingdom from eternal winter and bring back summer!
Fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey—teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven—to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf (voice of Josh Gad), Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom.
The film is directed by Chris Buck (“Tarzan,” “Surf’s Up”) and Jennifer Lee (screenwriter, “Wreck-It Ralph”), who also wrote the screenplay. It is produced by Peter Del Vecho (“Winnie the Pooh,” “The Princess and the Frog”).Featuring original songs from Kristen Anderson-Lopez (“In Transit,” “Winnie the Pooh”) and Tony® winner Robert Lopez (“The Book of Mormon,” “Avenue Q”), and an original score by Christophe Beck (“The Muppets,” Oscar®-winning short “Paperman”).
