“Frozen” is the tale of Anna and her journey to stop her sister, Elsa, from freezing the kingdom of Arendelle in an eternal winter state. Anna meets a rugged mountain man, Kirstoff, who invites Anna to ride in his sleigh to get to her sister. The sleigh is pulled by his loyal reindeer, Sven.
The three adventurous characters meet up with a hilarious snowman called Olaf. Olaf joins the group to locate Elsa and make her stop freezing everything in the normally warm, sunny kingdom of Arendelle. They fight off blizzard conditions, dangerous creatures and sometimes each other in their quest to bring summer back.
Helmer Chris Buck (Tarzan, Surf’s Up) will be directing “Frozen.” The screenwriter of “Wreck-It Ralph,” Jennifer Lee, has penned the upcoming feature. Produced by, Peter Del Vecho (Winnie the Pooh, The Princess and the Frog) is the force behind bringing “Frozen” to the big screen.
“Frozen” is based on “The Snow Queen,” that may sound familiar to Hans Christian Andersen fans. “The Snow Queen” is a classic fairy tale that might have viewers wondering where it is they’ve seen the "Frozen" plot before.
The upcoming musical-fantasy character voices aren’t merely people chosen to bring life to the film. Plenty of Broadway talent is behind the screen, such as Gad, Menzel, Groff and Santino Fontana have all originated roles in Broadway plays.
The music for “Frozen” is left in the capable hands of Tony winner Robert Lopez and partner Kristen Anderson-Lopez . Lopez set “The Book of Mormon” and “Avenue Q” to music and Kristen Anderson-Lopez was behind the musical score of “Lost in Transit.” The two have created original music for “Frozen.”
