A Teaser For Disney’s “Frozen”
by Perry Michael Simon on June 19, 2013
Coming off the high of Wreck-It Ralph, Disney is offering this teaser for next winter’s Frozen, to accompany the release of Monsters University in theaters this week. This is the one previously titled The Snow Queen (as in Hans Christian Andersen), and since the teaser doesn’t tell you anything of what it’s about, let’s let Disney itself describe it:
Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph, presents Frozen, a stunning big-screen comedy adventure. 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, 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), and produced by Peter Del Vecho (Winnie the Pooh, The Princess and the Frog). Featuring music from Tony winner Robert Lopez (The Book of Mormon, Avenue Q) and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (In Transit).
Added to the above are the voices of Josh Gad, Alan Tudyk, and Santino Fontana. This one’s due November 27th, and you’ll get a full trailer in September to help you decide if you’re going to see it.
